In Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts, world-renowned quilter Kaffe Fassett demonstrates how basic geometric forms-squares, rectangles, triangles, diamonds, circles, and quarter-circles-found_in natural and manmade environments inspire_his quilt designs. Twenty-three of his magnificent, inventive quilts-ranging from the relatively simple Tilt, ideal for beginners, to the more complex Circle of Stars, for more advanced stitchers-are showcased in the book, along with step-by-step instructions for making each one.
Along the way,_Fassett also_offers over a hundred photos_of geometric inspiration from around the world-everything from triangular watermelon slices, to rectangular sheets of metal on African scrap dwellings, to lollipop-shaped topiary trees in Japan. In the accompanying text,_Fassett reveals how he experiences the colors and basic shapes around him, how we can train our own eyes to see this rewarding source of creativity, and how we can, just as he does, combine striking fabrics with simple shapes to create our own spectacular quilt designs.
