Kaffe Fassett's Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts by Kaffe Fassett with Liza Prior Lucy

Kaffe Fassett demonstrates how basic geometric forms—squares, rectangles, triangles, diamonds, circles, and quarter-circles—found in natural and manmade environments inspire his quilt designs. Twenty-three of his quilts—ranging from the relatively simple Tilt, ideal for beginners, to the more complex Circle of Stars—are showcased, along with step-by-step instructions for making each one.

Fassett also offers over a hundred photos of geometric inspiration from around the world—everything from triangular watermelon slices, to rectangular sheets of metal on African scrap dwellings, to lollipop-shaped topiary trees in Japan. In the accompanying text, Fassett reveals how he experiences the colors and basic shapes around him, how we can train our own eyes to see this rewarding source of creativity, and how we can, just as he does, combine striking fabrics with simple shapes to create our own spectacular quilt designs.
