Notes

Description
For his landmark 25th book in his highly successful patchwork and quilt series, Kaffe Fassett has chosen the southern coast of England as the inspiration for his new collection of quilts. Beachgoers have long enjoyed the rocky shores near Hastings in East Sussex for their wild beauty and classic architecture. Featuring several miles of coastline, this seaside community has its roots in the fishing industry and was the site of the Norman Conquest's Battle of Hastings in 1066. Once a popular Victorian resort area, this gem of the southern coast is now experiencing a travel renaissance thanks to a thriving arts movement. The gallery section of the book showcases the 21 new designs, all brilliantly photographed on location by Debbie Patterson. The deep jewel tones of Kaffe's Maroon Frames are enhanced by the geometric lines of similarly toned beach huts. Kaffe's Vintage Stars has an old-world quality featuring earthy tones that are brilliantly set against the backdrop of a brick garden wall. The stunning Colour Garden quilt, featured on the cover, feels perfectly at home draped over an old fishing boat overlooking the sea, while his confectionary Fruit Sorbet cushion showcases taffy-inspired pastels sure to inspirea cozy afternoon by the beach. With both Kaffe's classic fabrics and his forward-thinking new designs to choose from, quilters will be thrilled with all Quilts by the Sea offers. In addition to the quilt designs, Quilts by the Sea includes detailed step-by-step instructions, accompanied by a flat shot of each quilt with the relevant block or quilt assembly diagram, while a how-to section offers more detailed guidance.
