Description[Softcover, 144 pages] Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Wales: Designs Inspired by a Welsh Castle (published 2022). This new collection of 20 exquisite quilts set off against the iconic 13th-century Powis Castle in north Wales, photographed by Debbie Patterson. Included in the new designs featured in this book are many very special ones by Kaffe, and others by his long-time friend and co-designer, Liza Prior Lucy. Kaffe's Saturated Red quilt finds its perfect partner in the rich deep hues of the bed hangings on a magnificent four-poster, while his Cold Frames quilt, with its dramatic black-and-white sashing framing fussy-cut flower prints, echoes the studding on the medieval wooden doors into the courtyard. The cool geometry of his Marble Tiles quilt takes its inspiration from the painted paneling in the Long Gallery, and his Vintage Library quilt echoes the warm tones of the hundreds of leather-bound books in the Castles collection. This book, the 24th in the series, includes a range of quilts for all skill levels, from beginners to advanced, and features an eclectic mix of patterns and colors. Flat shots and a practical know-how section and glossary back up the fully illustrated, step-by-step instructions for each quilt, plus templates for each quilt. A practical know-how section covers all the information needed by less experienced quilters.
