Timeless Themes explores the bold, beautiful patterns Kaffe and the Kaffe Fassett Collective have made famous – whether spripes, circles, geometrics and botanicals or floral sprays, spots, and retro zigzags.  Each chapter is a very personal look at the sources of his inspiration, the beginnings of his most classic patterns, and how he continues to reinvent.  The book takes readers on a flashback journey to see how Kaffe originated certain fabric patterns and it is also a backstage pass to more than fifty years of Kaffe’s photos and travel mementos.  Filled with fantastic new quilt designs, this insider’s guide will make you feel as if you were really there with Kaffe as he traveled and designed in London and globetrotted around the world.

An exciting addition to any quilter’s library, Timeless Themes blends the best elements of Kaffe’s life and inspiration, resulting in a fresh look at the designer at work—a must-have for readers everywhere.  As usual, this book includes a range of quilts for all skill levels, from beginners to advanced, and features an eclectic mix of patterns and colours ranging from Philip Jacobs’ eye-catching bold floral prints to Brandon Mably’s smaller-scale quirky patterns. Flat shots and a practical know-how section and glossary back up the fully illustrated, step-by-step instructions for each quilt, plus templates for each quilt.  A practical know-how section covers all the information needed by less experienced quilters.

Photographed brilliantly by Debbie Patterson, with additional inspirational photography by Brandon Mably.
