About the Author:

Kaffe Fassett is internationally-acclaimed as one of today's leading contemporary colorists and textile designers. Color and pattern are his obsessions, with his first venture into textiles being in yarns and knitting, and knit-garment design. Soon, his expertise extended to needlepoint, fabric, and quilt design.

Kaffe Fassett's unique garments have been commissioned by Barbra Streisand, Lauren Bacall, Ali McGraw, Shirley Maclaine, Helen Frankenthaler, and many more. His fabric lines for Westminster Fabrics are highly sought after by quilters worldwide.
