I love books. Especially books about color, photography and quilts. . . These are my newest favorites.
Simple Shapes, Spectacular Quilts is the latest Kaffe Fassett book. The projects are beautiful. The photography is amazing~it's a coffee table must have even if quilting is not your thing. This quilt is made up of fussy cut snowball blocks.
This is a very simple pattern pulling blues and greens together into a Poseidon's palette. This would be great in my sun room!
The other book, Kiln Formed Glass, was actually a buy for my husband who recently purchased a studio full of glass blowing equipment. As with all crafts, there is a certain amount of crossover in color theory. This is what drew me to this book, her application of color is vibrant and really draws on the color wheel for inspiration. This plate reminds me of a Kaffe Fassett print. . .Aqua and orange~love.
Look~another Kaffe print! I may have to try this myself, our local String Bead is offering a fused glass course over the summer and one of the local adult education programs is offering a silver smithing class~maybe there's a necklace or a hip little bracelet in my future. . .
