    Kaffe Fassett(Author)
Inspired by worldwide travels and a plethora of ethnic textiles, including the quilts of the Amish and from Gee's Bend in America, Japanese all indigo quilts, suzanis from the Caucuses, and Pakistani kanthas, the projects featured in this book include full sized bed and wall quilts as well as well as smaller pieces that can be completed more quickly, such as throws, table runners and pillows. With Shots + Stripes, Fassett is answering the modern quilt community's call for quilts that make bold graphic statements that are less time consuming and complex than some of the work for which he has been previously celebrated. While still serving his core audience of long time devotees and celebrating his and their passions for vibrant colour, Fassett is introducing himself to a new generation of quilters with the types of projects they're currently seeking.

Shots and Stripes is such an explosion of colour and shape, it's like a kaleidoscope; fun and totally mesmerising. Packed with a plethora of ethnic textiles and 24 world-inspired quilt patterns, it's hard to pick a fav. We need them all! --Mollie Makes

    Once again, kaffe Fassett has presented a delightful feast for the eyes and an opportunity for quilters to think about design and colour. I am always thrilled when a new Kaffe Fassett book comes out and I have never been disappointed. I have them all and spend many quiet, happy moments delighting in them, curled up on the settee with the dog, a cup of tea, dreaming about what fabrics I would use for a particular quilt design. Pure joy!

    This is a gorgeous attractive book, full of ideas for quilting at various skill levels. Very clear and accessible. The projects are exciting, and add a new dimension to Kaffe's legendary style catalogue.

    Quilting Not tried any yet but seen lots of inspiration as I like the idea that the fabric is the key to the quilt making.

    Having been to the Kaffe Fassett exhibition, which was excellent. I just had to have this has a much more modern feel to some of his previous books. Apart from the excellent patterns the book also tells about his inspiration for the a quilter my only moan is that some of the instruction on cutting could be made easier as there are now a lot of clever ways to achieve the same results ...but you can always use utube tutorials for extra help if new to quilting. I highly recommend this book.. To buy for yourself or a lovely present for a sewing friend.

    Another excellent book from Kaffe Fassett's collections. The projects are very colourful and interesting. I think this is a book that all quilters could use. Very clearly explained and well illustrated.
