Library Journal Review

Over the span of his lengthy career, -Fassett has earned a name for himself as an artist and designer whose works include painting, quilting, surface design, needlepoint, mosaic, and rag rugs. This new edition gives readers a look inside Fassett's Edwardian-era home, which is decorated in his signature style. Every surface is embellished, and every shelf features items from one of Fassett's many collections, which include everything from traditional blue-and-white pottery to smiling Buddhas. Crafters interested in bringing Fassett's style into their own homes can complete one of the projects, which include quilts, mosaics, and hooked rag rugs. VERDICT There's nothing minimal about Fassett, and readers will be fascinated with his ability to turn the traditional into something unusual and unexpected. © Copyright 2017.
