When designer Kaffe Fassett and co-author Liza Lucy gained access to the decorative arts collection in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, a book of beautiful adaptations of the museum’s vintage patchwork quilts came about.

Using the antique quilts as inspiration, Fassett and Lucy created new color palettes and color combinations. The results are contemporary quilts steeped in tradition.

If you are a quilter or simply a quilt collector, you’ll find something to admire, and possibly reproduce, in the large color photographs.

Instructions and templates for cutting and stitching classic designs such as the “Lone Star” and “Mariner’s Compass” quilts are included at the back of the book.
