Quilts in Burano by Kaffe Fassett
Burano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon, part of the Metropolitan City of Venice, known for its lace work and brightly coloured houses, as well as its ancient church, the Chiesa di San Martino.
‘Quilts in Burano’ is by far our most colourful book. The little fishing village near Venice, Italy, is astoundingly up-my-alley with its saturated colour on every house. It was like a film set designed to thrill its visitors. We were blessed indeed to have such a perfect backdrop for our newest quilts.’
– Kaffe, from his latest Summer 2020 email newsletter.
Of Burano Kaffe says,
“This is the sort of place I pray we will find, and at last we get to set our quilts in a corner of the world that echoes the colour we find so invigorating. I only hope you feel a fraction of the thrill that we felt every hour we spent on this magical island.”
Quilt’s in Burano’s official release date is early August 2020, but we have been able to secure a number of copies for early release (approximately mid July). Each book includes a bookplate signed by Kaffe Fassett.
The recommended retail price is £25, but we are offering it at just £21.95. Not only that, but each book will also include a voucher (valid until 31st December 2020) for a 10% discount off the price of any of the quilt kits we offer from Quilts in Burano.
The Quilt Kits
Our Burano quilt kits contain all the fabrics to complete the quilt top and binding (backing not included). Over time some fabrics become discontinued so a few of the kits contain substitutes where the original fabric is no longer available. The quilt kits are also available to pre-order online and should be available around the same time as the book.
