FASSETT'S COLOR INSPIRATIONS LECTURE
Kaffe Fassett lecture is designed to inspire and motivate.
The presentation highlights work from his latest projects,
including his patchwork quilt, fabric, needlepoint, mosaic,
painting and knitting designs. A tremendous amount of
Kaffe's inspiration comes from his continual travels and
this lecture is designed not so much to instruct but to
empower and inspire the audience to create and develop their
"mind's eye". Audiences leave invigorated - entranced by
Kaffe's sense and use of color; they are ready to try it
themselves and are encouraged to do so. The lecture is
followed by a question and answer session and book signing.

As quilters, we absorb
the colors and shapes that we see every day. We fuse those
common images with inspiration from quilt exhibits, books,
blogs, and fabric lines. The marriage becomes an individual
creation that speaks to both where we aspire to be as
quilters, and what we have already experienced.
The quilt named Bricktown
celebrates the downtown entertainment arts district of OKC.
It is also a collective inspiration of my experiences in the
past year. I was fortunate to travel to Roatan, Honduras
last summer. The tile rooftops and creatively designed
patios were very interesting. Even the most basic unfinished
wooden railing was cut in a purposeful decorative manner,
like a quilt block. In the fall, I had the privilege of
taking my son to college. Eating brunch in a French-inspired
cafe' I fell in love with the cafe' floor tiles. Back at
OKQW, Debbie kindly shared her book Red and White Quilts:
Infinite Variety based on the 2011 New York City
exhibit. My goal was to create the impression of a tile
floor using pieced rather than appliqué blocks to pay
tribute to the rustic wood cut porches of Honduras. At the
same time, I aimed to create a red and white quilt that did
not use just solid fabrics. Looking closely at photographs
of the exhibit quilts, I noticed many were made up of prints
although from a distance they appeared to be comprised of
The fabrics in Bricktown
(with the exception of the white) are not solids. They are
fun geometric blenders and I couldn't resist the red and
white cathedral window print! Once the top was complete, I
worked with long-arm quilter Leanne Dalke to find a design
that would enhance the on-point geometric nature and not
distract from the sharply contrasting colors. We selected a
thinly spaced diamond spiral maze design with clear thread.
Come in to OKQW to take a closer look at the Bricktown
quilt. We will be taking orders for kits. Also available is
the individual Bricktown Block. I hope you enjoy making it
as much I did designing it! —Emilee
