    If you love Kaffe, you'll love this book

    I love the pictures and projects. The lay out, as usual, is spectacular. His work is always different and inspiring.

    Amazing Quilts

    Purchased this as a gift for a quilting cousin. She raved about it and was thrilled as she had read other books by Mr. Fassett. She also knew that a wonderful Quilt Shop in Sisters, Oregon, had hosted him one year during their Quilt Show and they now carry his fabrics. Makes a quilt into Fabric Art. Even a non-sewer like me could read and enjoy every photo.
