In this special edition in Kaffe’s Patchwork and Quilting series, Kaffe has taken his inspiration for the 20 new quilts in this book from some particularly glorious quilts of the past. Kaffe has taken 15 quilts that caught his eye from The Quilter’s Guild Collection and worked his magic using his current range of fabrics to give them a wholly new dimensions, bringing together his passion for textile making with, as he says ‘the ingenious discoveries of past quilt-makers’.

In his contemporary take on these amazing quilts – the 15 chosen span three centuries of quilt making and are featured in his introduction – he breathes fresh life into their eye-catching patterns and geometry, from hexagons to log-cabins and from complex medallions to simple strippies. He has invited five of his team of designers to make their own versions of five of them, creating yet further layers of interest.

In addition to the gallery of quilts, old and new, the book includes detailed information on how to make each of Kaffe and his team’s new quilts, along with general practical patchwork and quilting information and a visual summary of his latest fabric.
