Kaffe Fassett A Life in Colour - Part 1

Yesterday's post was all about my trip to London with my friend Sarah, (if you missed it you can read about it here ) and I promised that I would share some photos of the Kaffe Fassett Exhibition, called A Life in Colour at the Fashion and Textiles Museum in Bermondsey. 
Well I looked through my trusty Iphone and realised that I have just so many photos, I think I am going to have to write several posts! 
So this post is about the downstairs part of the exhibition, which mainly features the wonderful quilts.  I have done my best with the photos; it was difficult to photograph some of them as many were up high, and I'm vertically challenged at the best of times.  But I think you will get a good idea of just how amazing they are. 
Here they are.  Pretend that you are really there and enjoy!

Which one's your favourite?  I love them all but I do particularly love the second to last one, which you can also see in the corner of the photo above on the right hand side.  Isn't his fabric just fabulous, I just love that all his work is such a riot of colour. 
So much inspiration here, and what a talented man!
Thank you for stopping by,

  1. I love the second and the last one but I would happily give a home to any of them :)

  2. Second to last is my absolute favourite too, I've had that design on my 'to do' list for ages now. You are so lucky to have his quilts up close, I'm very, very envious. Thanks for sharing the photos and making me feel like I was there. Can't wait to see your next post :)

  3. What an amazing gift he has, they are simply stunning. My favourite is the second one.

  4. I like that one too. I've just borrowed his autobiography from the library but I've not read much of it yet.

  5. The second one, no doubt about it

  6. I love the second one most! I love his use of colour.

  7. I love the blue one (the first one in your photos that's wrapped round a column or similar) - I love stripes!
