Kaffe Fassett’s scrumptious new hardcover book arrived at my door today, all the way from my favourite online bookshop half-way round the world. With free postage, super-fast delivery, and prices (quoted in your choice of currency) way lower than Amazon, I absolutely love Book Depository! Simple shapes just glow with colour in these quilts, but one quilt in particular caught my eye. Does this look familiar? In his preamble to this pattern, Kaffe mentions that he was inspired by this quilt, made by Frederica Josephson in the mid 1800s and photographed in Annette Gero’s book “The Fabric of Society”. Kaffe joins a fast-growing cohort of stitchers who’ve made quilts inspired by this hexagon beauty, the most illustrious of whom are Kim McLean - - and Kerry Dear My current header gives you a sneak peek of my own work-in-progress, and I have half a dozen friends similarly addicted.
Just look what you started, young Freddie!
