    DescriptionThis, the 13th in the series of Kaffe Fassett's highly successful patchwork and quilting books from Rowan, is photographed by Debbie Patterson at the Skansen Museum in Stockholm, the oldest open-air museum in the world, where different styles of old Swedish houses built of richly painted wood make a great backdrop for this collection of 20 new quilts by Kaffe and his chosen designers. He uses Serape, an exciting new striped fabric to great effect combined with shot cottons, creating simple graphic quilts where the colours sing out. Other quilts of Kaffe's resonate with saturated colour in deep earthy tones. In the Designer Profile, Kaffe explains how he creates his quilts, a fascinating insight into a genius at work.

    Author Information
    Born in San Francisco, Kaffe settled in England in 1964 and worked as an artist. On a trip to Scotland he stumbled on an irresistible collection of coloured yarns; a few months later he was hooked and proceeded to knit and stitch himself a career. Kaffe designed a stunning collection of printed fabrics for the Kaffe Fassett Fabric Collection for Rowan, all of which have featured in the Rowan patchwork and quilting books, of which 12 have now appeared since the first was published in 1999. Kaffe is the first living textile artist to have a one-man show at the V&A museum in London.
