Tradition quilts are newly interpreted with a modern twist in this beautiful book. It features an accessible format with materials list and illustrated instructions, accompanied by a sumptuous photograph of the finished product. The 11th in the series of Kaffe Fassett's highly successful patchwork and quilting books from Rowan is photographed in romantic Portmeirion, the Welsh village well-known for Clough-Ellis' dramatic Italianate architecture and pastel painted walls, which are the stunning backdrop for the 20 new quilt designs from Kaffe and his chosen designers. Rowan are unique in producing fabulous fabrics and patchwork and quilting books. This book is not about tricky piecing but the joyous use of unexpected color stories. It works rather like a cookery book: a sumptuous photograph of the finished project plus an ingredients list and written instructions illustrated with colored diagrams, plus a 'flat shot' photo and all the templates.
