Kaffe Fassett Quilts

We’re delighted to share a selection of quilts by Kaffe Fassett in celebration of his latest book, ‘Quilts from an English Village’ released August 2021. The book is the 23rd in the series and offers projects for quilters of all levels, each inspired by the beautiful medieval village of Lavenham in Suffolk. This exhibition will showcase a number of the quilts featured in the book, plus one from Kaffe Fassett in the Studio, published in April this year, all with his signature bold colours and bright fabrics.
