Perfect for quilters who want to create grand designs, Kaffe Fassett's Quilt Grandeur (Taunton, 2013) features 20 all-new patterns that highlight Kaffe's signature line of Rowan fabrics. Before starting your project, become inspired by the beautiful gallery of contemporary style quilts captured in the first half of the book.

Learn about different color pallets and substitutions, while choosing between classic or current fabrics for a distinct look. The super saturated pinks, clear turquoise, vivid lavenders, and high impact reds beautifully showcase the designs from quilters with household names. The following projects include: Mary Mashuta's Swirling Petals, Lisa Prior Lucy's Cartwheel, Judy Baldwin's Diagonal Brinks, Pauline Smith's Blue Haze, and Brandon Mably's Paper Dolls.

Each design has full color images, materials needed, assembly diagram, and templates that are both listed and provided. Kaffe 's 30 years of expierence will walk you through creating a fabulous piece from start to finish. 

Leave a comment on this post before the deadline-11:59 P.M., September 13 and you could take home a copy of Kaffe Fassett's Quilt Grandeur. A winner will be chosen at random and announced via email the week of September 16.
