Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Burano

Designs inspired by a Venetian Island

Kaffe Fassett


Kaffe Fassett uses the colourful Venetian island of Burano to form the backdrop of another stunning collection of new quilt designs. The quilts have been photographed on location in Burano, a tiny island in Italy's Venetian archipelago, famous for its lace making but also for its brilliantly painted houses in a myriad jewel colours.

The collection of 19 quilts features both new fabric designs from the Kaffe Collective and some of his Classics. Bali Brocade makes a fantastic background to Kaffe's sumptuous Shimmer Star quilt with its ripples of pattern in contrasting prints. His two versions of a very simple quilt, comes in two very different colourways. Hot Steps is a riot of colour, whereas by contrast its sister quilt, Cool Steps, in dusty blues, greens and greys has an dreamy quality. Liza Prior Lucy's rich and dark Turkish Coffee quilt, with its hint of Eastern promise, fussy cuts Kaffe's new Turkish Delight fabric to brilliant effect.

The book provides all the instructional text, diagrams and templates to make the quilts, plus a section on basic patchwork techniques for less experienced quilters.
