    I’m new to the works of Kaffe Fassett. His talent is so incredible, the colors reach out and grab me. I’d love to be able to go to the show but I live too far away. The New York Times article is a must read and the slideshow is amazing. I love his quote about “absolutely passionate pools of color”. If anything it’s an understatement. Thank you for bringing him to my attention. I’ll be learning everything I can about him and his amazing works.

    What fabulous use of colors, all so bright and happy.
    would love to learn more about his works of art.

  3. Cindy Dahlgren says:

    I love his fabulous use of colors that don’t “go together”, like hot pink, orange and red in the same quilt. All of his quilts look fabulous, and I wish I could be that comfortable with color.

  4. Dana Gaffney says:

    I’m afraid if I met him I’d be speechless, his use of color is amazing. I do use his fabrics for my quilts and often look to his quilts for inspiration.

  5. Myrna Goddard says:

    I love his fabrics and use them often to brighten. He has such a nice selection you can always find that one color that your quilt is missing within his designs.

    My daughter fell in love with this fabric so I had to make a purse for her with it. Love the bright colors and designs.

    I love his great design and use of color. I have made a few of his gorgeous needlepoint designs.

    I discovered Kaffe Fassett when checking out quilting books at the library. I checked out a few of his books and fell in love with his use of color. I started buying some of his fabric and have used it in several quilts. Thanks for the eye candy!

    I think I love every single one of Kaffe Fassett’s fabrics! The colors & prints are so joyful; I’ve used them in quilts, purses & of course-to add to my stash!

    I have taken a block of the month of Kaffes here in the Raleigh, NC area and I just love his fabric, it really caused me to step out of my box. Thanks, Sandra

    Kaffe’s knitting and quilting have blown me away for years. I have used his fabrics and designs a number of times, and love his inspiration. Going to England this summer and plan to see the exhibit!

    I love all the pretty colors! Pick me, please.
