Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Photographed against the sun-drenched background of Portugal, this collection of patterns for 20 gorgeous quilts reflects the color inspirations of master colorist Fassett, with quilts by the author and by other leading quilt designers, including Liza Prior Lucy, Amy Butler, and Mary Mashuta. Bold geometric designs and the richly patterned fabrics characteristic of the Fassett style feature prominently; included are a marvelous free-style log cabin quilt in brilliant colors and the Chelsea Quilt with stylized flowers appliqu├ęd on a pieced-quilt center with a border of striking print fabrics. Many quilters will use these projects as jumping-off points for their own explorations of color, but for those who wish to reproduce the quilts, there are step-by-step instructions, full-size templates, and color photos. Recommended for large public libraries and academic textile collections.
