Kaffe Fassett’s Quilts in America: Designs Inspired by Vintage Quilts from the American Museum in Britain

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of his highly successful series of patchwork and quilting books, Kaffe Fassett has returned to his American roots. Using the collection of American vintage quilts in Britain’s American Museum in Bath as his inspiration, Kaffe has chosen 18 different quilts as the basis for his 20 new designs in this book.

Designs feature both his latest fabrics and his much-loved classics, mostly from the Kaffe Fassett Collective but also his latest collection of Artisan fabrics.
An introductory section, this book features the original quilts that inspired Kaffe, and tells the reader something about their provenance.
The new designs demonstrate Kaffe’s vivid and unique colour combinations, giving new meaning to familiar block patterns such as Tumbling Blocks, Starbursts, and Log Cabins.
Photographed in bucolic Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
Each pattern contains full step-by-step piecing instructions and detailed diagrams.

We are also offering a selection of the quilts from the book as kits to order. Please note that you will require a copy of the book for the instructions.

"In selecting fabrics for my version of this quilt, I chose to stay close to the original American Museum quilt.

Ref: 7712KT

From Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in America. Our kit includes all the fabric to make quilt top and binding as recommended in the book (backing not included). A copy of Quilts in America is required for the instructions.

"At first glance this quilt appears to be simpler than it is. Hexagons are sewn into blocks made up of 6 hexagons with a 6-pointed star in the centre. Those blocks are sewn to each other using filler triangles in a way that makes the blocks swirl a bit clockwise. This glorious quilt is for expert machine sewers only. There are many Y-seams, and it requires very careful cutting and piecing. A simpler approach would be to use an English paper piecing technique and sew by hand, although this would be more time consuming. The design would be lovely scaled down."

Finished quilt approximately 98in x 112in (249cm x 284.5cm). Please note that this kit contains at least one substitute as some fabrics are no longer available.

"We tried various methods to recreate the original quilt, and the one described here turned out to be the easiest. You could make this scrappy quilt in other ways, perhaps with string piecing on foundation paper. There is no right or wrong approach.
