I am inspired by Kaffe Fassett, who is multi-talented and a lover of colour. I can’t claim the former status but I do claim the latter.
A serious artist who dared to venture into crafts, he paints, knits, quilts, works in tile mosaic, needlepoint and designs fabrics and rugs too.
Circles are in right now but I have always had a fondness for squares. I love how this quilt reminds me of tiles.
And this Kaffe Fassett paisley should have been on my previous post, Paisley Passion.
A Kaffe Fassett pouf; now that’s funny! But I want it!
I own this book and am crazy about broken tile mosaic and determined to do some this summer. I have a collection of tiles but am disappointed in their neutral colours. I can’t bring myself to smash up china that I like and if I don’t like it, why would I want something tiled in it.

He also designs yarns of the very kind I fall for, multi-coloured soft wools like these found at whichcraft.co.uk
My head head spins with ideas whenever I see Kaffe Fassett’s work and I love how he has a signature style that doesn’t bend to trends. I’ll close with some of his paintings, the artistic expression with which Kaffe began his career. Images via itkupilli-inspirations.blogspot.com
