To celebrate the 20th anniversary of his highly successful series of patchwork and quilting books, Kaffe Fassett has returned to his American roots. Using the wonderful collection of American vintage quilts in Britian's American Museum in Bath as his inspiration, Kaffe has chosen 18 very different quilts as the basis for his 20 new designs in this book, featuring both his latest fabrics and his much-loved classics, mostly from the Kaffe Fassett Collective but also his very latest collection of Artisan fabrics. An introductory section, this book features the original quilts that inspired Kaffe, and tells the reader something about their provenance. The new designs demonstrate Kaffe's vivid and unique color combinations, giving new meaning to familiar block patterns such as Tumbling Blocks Starbursts, and Log Cabins. Photographed in bucolic Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Each pattern contains full step-by-step piecing instructions and detailed diagrams.
