Well worth the money, even if you only look at the book and don't actually make any of the designs - I was inspired! Throughout the day, Kaffe and his partner Brandon Mabley gently guided the students along, making suggestions on color choices as each row developed. The book is divided into five chapters by colour themes: gentle Soft Pastels, bold and brassy Circus hues, fresh Leafy Gardens, alluring Antique Stone Colours and rich Renaissance tones.The book will inspire you to make quilts that don't pretend to be antiques, but will instead enliven a room in a distinctly modern way.

Fasset shows what you can do by NOT contrasting fabrics, but instead by playing with the possibilities of putting three, four, or seventeen different reds, greens or pinks next to each other. All quilts have step-by-step instructions, and actual size templates are included for photocopying at the back of the book. With this lavish book Kaffe Fassett delves into an exciting new textile arena, injecting elegance and richness into the contemporary quilting world. Where we might just say shades of red, to him it was “flaming red”, or “pungent blue”, or “mustard green”.In addition to the main quilts, there are ideas for smaller, accompanying items, such as curtains, cushions and even tablecloths, so that you can develop the patchwork theme within an interior - as well as enjoying smaller projects which can be treated in no time at all. Known for his exuberant use of color, Kaffee has built a design empire that extends to fabric, knitting, needlepoint, mosaics and patchwork. This final discourse was as much a critique as it was another lesson in the language and the concepts of Kaffe’s color world. Besides this quilting class, I have also taken and written about a quilt class with Empty Spools as well as the Judy Niemeyer Quiltworx class that I took at her retreat house in Montana.
