Overview

The 16th book in Kaffe's acclaimed series showcases 20 brilliant quilts in the historic location of Fez in Morocco.
 
With its strong rich colors and beautiful mosaics, Fez makes the perfect setting for a brilliant new collection from Kaffe and his chosen designers.
 
Kaffe's own quilts feature new fabrics, including Belle Epoch, an intricate paisley used to great effect in the broad vertical stripes of his Paisley Columns quilt—and Flame Stitch, with its deep zigzags of color showing perfectly in the Strata quilt. For lovers of florals, there are beautiful quilts featuring the Brocade Peony, Gertrude, Joy, and flowery Bouffant fabrics.  
 
In addition to the traditional gallery of quilts, all photographed on location in Fez by Debbie Patterson, the book has Kaffe’s wonderfully detailed step-by-step instructions and diagrams for each quilt.

Meet the Author

"Color and pattern are my obsessions, and playing with them in different mediums leads to a stimulating life." Kaffe Fassett enjoys worldwide artistic recognition for his visionary, organic and instinctive uses of color and pattern inspired by centuries of decorative arts and the compelling world of nature. He is the first textile designer to be given a one-person show at both the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. He also is a leading fabric designer for Rowan Patchwork and Quilting and the leading knitwear designer for Rowan Yarns. Born and raised in San Francisco, Kaffe moved to London to Paint at the age of 19. He became a permanent London resident in 1964 and from London, travels, exhibits and teaches around the world.
