Kaffe Fassett at Standen

Had a really good visit to Standen National Trust property today and not only had the chance to look at a lovely Arts and Craft House but also got to see a temporary exhibition of work by Kaffe Fassett. There were three rooms dedicated to showing off a collection of quilts and other textiles. In addition there were lots of quilts, shawls and needlepoint cushions scattered around the property itself and used as furnishings. It was really refreshing to see them alongside all the sculptures, paintings items of pottery within this gorgeous house.

Some of the knitted shawls. I particularly liked the one in muted colours

Some of the hanging quilts and details from them

Hanging displayed on the wall of the cafe plus some of the items used as furnishings in the rooms.
