A Rowan Publication
Quilters of all skill levels will love this new Rowan collection of 20 original quilt designs by Kaffe Fassett with featured quilt designers Roberta Horton, Mary Mashuta, Liza Prior Lucy, Pauline Smith, Brandon Mably, Betsy Menefee Rickles, Amy Butler, Philip Jacobs, Carla Miller and Rebekah Lynch. Inspired by Portugal's beautiful landscape and culture, the quilts are shown against the background of the fabulous glazed tiles and unique architecture of Santa Catorina castle and the tiled blue and white walls of Porto and Lisbon. Kaffe's own designs display his famous use of color, as well as explore the effect a border or sashing has on the center of a block of a quilt. Selected quilts are shown with varied color palettes to demonstrate the impact of color on the quilt design and to encourage quilters to try their own combinations. Each quilt is accompanied by a flat shot, detailed written instructions, and colored piecing diagrams, and a tips and techniques section for quilters of all skill levels.
