Voyage to Morocco! In his sixteenth book, Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Morocco: 20 designs from Rowan for patchwork and quilting, world-renowned textile artist, Kaffe Fassett, takes us on a trip of visual delight to Fez – Morocco's enchanted, medieval-style city where bold, rich colors and beautiful mosaics abound. Fez, known as the soul of Morocco, is the ideal setting to inspire Kaffe's brilliant new collection, using the latest Rowan fabrics: Belle Epoch, Flame Stitch, Brocade Peony, Gertrude, Joy, Bouffant.

Practical instruction. Outstanding artistry. Stunning photography throughout, a practical materials list, step-by-step instructions with useful tips, and 80 colorful diagrams, illustrations, and templates for piecing the quilt make this book a must-have guide to outstanding artistry. A showcase for 20 brilliant new quilts. Kaffe collaborated with a team of hand-picked designers whose remarkable quilts are featured throughout the book. Among the designs are Liza Prior Lucy's Blue Morocco and Spice Mountains; Pauline Smith's Teapots and Mellow Ninepatch; Brandon Mably's Carnaby; and Fountains by Ruth Eglinton.   Dazzle your senses. Radiant photographs by Debbie Patterson truly capture the saturated gem tones and deeply colorful, striking patterns of Kaffe's inventive designs. Kaffe's quilt Paisley Columns features an intricate paisley fabric used to dramatic effect in the broad vertical stripes, and in his Strata quilt, the deep zigzags of color highlight his energizing design. Beautiful quilts artfully interpreted! Don’t miss this opportunity to indulge in an amazing experience. See the enchantment of Morocco come alive in gorgeous quilts you can make.
