Quilting Fabrics by Kaffe Fassett & Philip Jacobs
American artist, Kaffe Fassett has made his home in London, England for the past 40 years. Born in San Francisco, he was raised in Big Sur where his interest in art was nurtured by his mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, all painters. A free spirit, he found work painting commissioned murals, illustrating books, doing set designs for theatre, and selling paintings. Philip Jacobs works freelance and has over the years built up a vast archive of antique textiles and wallpapers from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. The archive is stored in an old converted stable at his home in Dorset and acts as a source of inspiration for new designs. He is now producing furnishing and wallpaper designs for Andrew Martin, Colefax & Fowler, Sanderson, Zoffany, and is working with Kaffe Fassett producing the quilting designs for Westminster fabrics.
