The colourful world of Kaffe Fassett

Earlier this week, we went to the American Museums just outside Bath.  It’s 30 years since I last visited – the quilts there were the inspiration that resulted in me eventually starting to quilt myself.

The Kaffe Fassett exhibition was wonderful, quirky and had a tremendous feel good feeling right from the start

I particularly liked the way the exhibition pulled together the various medium he has used into the different colours which showed how the same tones have run through all his work.

Like many, I first came across Kaffe Fassett with his designs for Rowan Yarns – I loved both the yarns and the wonderful designs.  Then I rediscovered him when he moved to needlepoint – I’d done tapestry since I was a teenager and very much welcomed his colours and freer designs.

And of course, now I enjoy making quilts from his wonderful fabrics.  What a talented and inspiring man!
