As artists most of us have “go to” books and artists where we look to for color inspiration. Kaffe Fassett is one of my favorites for color and pattern. I have six of his books, my favorite is Glorious color.
Several of his fabrics play important rolls in my patchwork living room curtains and over the years I have made several color inspiration collages based on clippings from an old Kaffe Fassett calendar and photo copies of fabric swatches.
After reading his mosaic book- I made a colorful side table. So, I am thrilled that he has a new book out – “Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts”. There is an interesting video interview here where he starts by saying “What interests me more than anything in the world is pattern”.
I wonder just what he would do if he experimented with polymer? For more inspiration visit his student’s Flickr pool.
