Hot Wheels Quilt Kasse Fassett

Hot Wheels - 2014
Designed by Kaffe Fassett constructed and quilted by Pauline Smith
On loan from The Quilter Guild of the British Isles/Kaffe Fassett Studio

Looking at this quilt, it seems the vibrant colours chosen to recreate the circular design of the wheels patchwork create an impression of summer parasols - like the sunbathers arranged in regiments rows, viewed from above.  The daisy print frame feels like a surrounding field of flowers or meadow, providing a calming element to such a bold and colourful piece.

Through out the gallery you saw Kasse Fassetts designed quilt, alongside the original much older quilt that inspired him.
