Fall into a world of bright, visionary colors in Kaffe Fassett’s Bold Blooms. World-renowned textile artist, Kaffe Fassett invites readers into his workshop to learn how to make stunning, eye-catching quilts, needlepoint canvases, and bold ribbon patterns.
Pulling inspiration from nature, Kaffe will teach you how to create unique color palettes from soft neutrals to rich, dark tones. With an emphasis on patchwork and needlework, the inventive designs and fresh color palettes translate to many creative disciplines ranging from mosaic, beading, fiber arts, embroidery, floral arrangements, and home décor.
Beginning crafters and experienced artists alike will learn and refine Kaffe’s process of sketching fabric swatches and creating mood-boards. There are 18 new quilt patterns and 7 new needlepoint patterns featured throughout, so readers can see projects from concept to completion.
Kaffe Fassett’s work has been featured in museums worldwide, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. He has authored 15 books on quilting and pattern making, including Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts. Kaffe is regarded as a visionary for the use of bold colors and stunning designs.
