In Kaffe Fassett Quilts Shots and Stripes, quilt master Kaffe Fassett and coauthor Liza Prior Lucy present 24 projects—small and large, beginner and advanced—made with iridescent solid-colored cotton fabrics (called shot cottons) and woven striped cotton fabrics, all photographed in and around his weekend home on England’s southern coast. Inspired by worldwide travels and a plethora of ethnic textiles, including Amish quilts in America, Japanese indigo patched work clothes, and African weavings, the projects featured include full-size bed quilts as well as smaller pieces that can be completed more quickly, such as throws, wall hangings, table runners, and pillows. With Shots and Stripes, Fassett answers the current call for quilts that make bold graphic statements but are not necessarily as time-consuming as some of the work for which he has been previously celebrated. Also available from Kaffe Fassett: Kaffe Fassett's Bold Blooms, Kaffe Fassett's Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts, and Kaffe Fassett: Dreaming in Color. Praise for Kaffe Fassett Quilts Shots and Stripes: “Shot cottons are the latest thing in quilting, Fassett’s a big name, and this is a lovely collection with wide appeal for both traditional and modern quilters.” —Library Journal “Kaffe Fassett is a superstar in the world of textiles.” —Craft Gossip “As with all of Kaffe’s books—whether quilting or knitting or needlework—the photos and lay-out are lavish. It is a treat for the senses.” —Getting Stitched on the Farm “Kaffe & Liza did it again! It's amazing to have another pattern book so soon, following . . . Kaffe’s fascinating memoir, Dreaming in Color. Do you really need yet another Kaffe book in your library of quilt books? Why, yes, you do.” —Meg Cox “Fassett (Dreaming in Color) and Lucy, owner of Glorious Color and Fassett's frequent collaborator, have birthed a book of startling beauty. Beyond producing drooling glances, their book journey’s determinedly yet joyfully through 24 projects, well conceived and with clear instructions.” —Publishers Weekly “If you’re looking for a book with beautiful, inspiring photographs to relax with on the sofa or want some fresh ideas that showcase the rich handwoven fabrics that are on the market today, Shots and Stripes would be a great addition to your library.” —Thread Bias “Filled with breathtakingly gorgeous products, the book is meant to inspire and teach at the same time. Best of all? You don’t have to be an expert sewer or experienced quilter to make it through these patterns.” —[email protected] magazine “Kaffe Fassett and Liza Prior Lucy’s new book is such an explosion of color and shape, it’s like a kaleidoscope; fun and totally mesmerizing.” —Mollie Makes “As in all of Kaffe and Liza’s books, the quilts are beautifully designed; the staging and photography also makes this a book you will be proud to display on your coffee table.” —Quilt Inspiration “Stunning Quilts, beautiful fabrics, gorgeous photography, Kaffe’s amazing design style—what's not to love?” —Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting magazine “Filled with breathtakingly gorgeous products, the book is meant to inspire and teach at the same time. Best of all? You don’t have to be an expert sewer or experienced quilter to make it through these patterns.” —[email protected] Home magazine

Kaffe Fassett has led an extraordinary life and is a captivating storyteller with a vivid memory. Born in 1937, he spent much of his youth in Big Sur, California, where his parents bought a cabin from Orson Welles and transformed it into the world-famous Nepenthe restaurant, a gathering place for artists and bohemians. After attending a boarding school run by the disciples of Krishnamurti, an Indian guru, he studied painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, then traveled to England, where he made his home. After an inspiring trip to Inverness, Scotland, Fassett began designing knitwear for Bill Gibb, and then the Missonis, Vogue magazine, and private clients like Lauren Bacall and Barbra Streisand, and, in the process, revolutionized the handknitting world with his explosive use of color. Further explorations led him to needlepoint, mosaics, rugmaking, tapestries, yarn and fabric design, costume and set design, and quilting. Now in his seventies, Fassett continues to produce new work and to travel worldwide to teach and lecture. In this intimate autobiography, Fassett shares rich, detailed stories about his lifelong creative journey as well as hundreds of glorious photos taken along the way. Praise for Kaffe Fassett: Dreaming in Color: “Kaffe Fassett is to color what Julia Child was to French cooking.” —Knitters Review “Lavishly illustrated with photographs from his life and work and dishing on everyone from Dustin Hoffman to Princess Margaret, Dreaming in Color describes a charmed life filled with creativity, big personalities, travels and not a little serendipity.” —Vogue Knitting “Shapes and patterns are everywhere; they lie waiting for the person who wants to see them. It's the bricolage aspect behind his work and, arguably, Fassett himself: arranging disparate things to create something dynamic and new.” —Vogue Knitting “This book would be a beautiful gift to receive or give. It is like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.” —Examiner.com “A glance through his new autobiography shows that this is a man who, in design terms, hit the ground running and has never stopped.” —Selvedge magazine “Dreaming in Color, lavishly illustrated with 500 color pictures, is a feast for the eyes.” —Shelf Awareness “Reading this book is like peeling an orange on a gray winter’s day—every single one of your senses is sparked as you get sprayed with infectious creativity.” —Knitty.com “Kaffe Fassett is a luminary in the world of textiles and knitting, spreading the gospel of color in his books and travels.” —The Houston Chronicle “It is a beautiful book, no question. Beautifully designed, thoughtfully composed, well-written, Kaffe takes you on his creative journey. We all—quilters, knitters, needlepointers, and just plain art lovers—are indeed very fortunate that he would share all of this with the world.” —Getting Stitched on the Farm “Fassett is a kind of Harrison Ford of the knitting world….” —The Washington Post “Kaffe Fassett is a luminary in the world of textiles and knitting, spreading the gospel of color in his books and travels.”—The Houston Chronicle “This book is a gorgeous coffee table treasure but it so much more than the vibrant photos, it is a moving and interesting autobiography and I am so glad it has been published. What a treat to read, hold, soak in and enjoy.” —Susan B. Anderson “Brimming over with beautiful eye-candy and intimate details, this colorful book is sure to charm and inspire.” —Love of Knitting magazine “One of the book’s many virtues is how effectively Fassett conveys his enthusiasm about his work to the reader. ‘I’m st
