Synopsis

This stunning collection of quilts has been photographed on location in the island of Burano, a tiny island in Italy's Venetian archipelago, famous for its lace making but also for its brilliantly painted houses in a variety of jewel colours. The colourful house walls, as well as canals, bridges and boats, form the backdrop to this wonderful selection of new quilt designs. The collection of 19 quilts features both new fabric designs from the Kaffe Collective and some of his classics. Bali Brocade makes a fantastic background to Kaffe's sumptuous Shimmer Star quilt (one for more experienced quilters), with its ripples of pattern in contrasting prints. His two versions of a very simple quilt, suitable for first-timers, come in two very different colourways. Hot Steps is a riot of colour, whereas by contrast its sister quilt, Cool Steps, in dusty blues, greens and greys, has an almost dreamy quality. Liza Prior Lucy's rich and dark Turkish Coffee quilt, with its hint of Eastern promise, fussy cuts Kaffe's new Turkish Delight fabric to brilliant effect. 'Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Burano' provides all the basic instructional text, diagrams and templates to make the quilts, plus a section on basic patchwork techniques for less experienced quilters.
