If you know Fassett's designs, you'll probably already have this; if you don't, and you're looking for an inspiring patchwork project, this would be a good book to go searching in. I'm not an especially experienced patchworker, but I'm finding this book a real joy to work with. It's nice to have cushions and table runners to choose from, as well as the big quilts/ wall hangings that tend to dominate the other Fassett books. The bright fabrics in the designs are also appealing. A book that would suit most patchworkers - some simple designs, and some more complex ones too. Compliments 'Passionate Patchwork' without too much of an overlap.

-----Kaffe Fassett has a wonderful perception of COLOR----- 27 May 2007
By Judith Miller - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In A COLOURFUL JOURNEY, K. Fassett had nine designers, including himself create over twenty patchwork quilts. The fabrics used in the quilts are from the Kaffe Fassett Fabric Collection. That collection of fabrics is shown in the back of the book so that the reader can locate the name or Id number of the individual patterns.

The quilts in the book are indeed a vivid variety of colors. In looking over the offerings of the quilt artists, I had several favorites. Kaffe Fassett designed quite a few and from his collection I liked Handkerchief Corner Pastel which is an updated handkerchief quilt. Mosaic Columns that has a chintz look and Jubilee Gardens is like a Tiffany lamp with many small pieces. Pete and Paul's quilt by Roberta Horton has a stylish elegance. The Strippy Chevrons quilt by Susan Druding gave me a happy feeling with its cheerful colors as did the quilt made by Sally R. Davis which she called Co-Ordinated Chaos Quilt. The instructions for making the quilts are included in the book. Most of the quilts were photographed at an 1860 house in Hastings, England which gave a nice backdrop to the images.

This book also contains a short article that profiles the friendship between Anna Williams and Katherine Watts. Katherine has even written a book about Anna and her wonderful quilts that have helped to inspire a new interest in quilting

Fassett has produced some wonderful books and I've enjoyed several. My favorite is WELCOME HOME: KAFFE FASSETT because it seems to be the most personal of his books. Other books not to be missed are: GLORIOUS PATCHWORK and PASSIONATE PATCHWORK.
