Quilts in Morocco
by Kaffe Fassett
The vibrant colours and fantastic patterns of Kaffe's new quilts have found their perfect partner in the richly decorated houses and gardens of the old quarter of Fez in Morocco. Kaffe and his team show off this stunning array of new designs against the old mosaics, richly carved furniture and exotic courtyards to be found in the narrow soukhs, all captured in Debbie Patterson's brilliant photography. Among the quilts this time are Kaffe's eye-catching Shuttles quilt and his Flying Geese design, which echoes the diamond patterns of the ancient mosaics. His richly toned Paisley Columns picks up the tones of the splendidly decorated painted furniture, as does Liza Prior-Lucy aptly named Blue Morocco quilt. In strong contrast, Corinne Kramer's Cayenne quilt makes an eye-catching splash of all the reds in the private hamam at the Cafe Fez. It features 20 quilt designs: by Kaffe himself, Liza Prior Lucy, Brandon Mably, Pauline Smith, Ruth Eglington, Julie Stockler, Judy Baldwin, Corienne Kramer and Sally Davis.
