Product description

The only book of its kind on this innovative and interesting subject. The Japanese folded patchwork technique was first introduced to Mary Clare Clark by a Japanese student who had gone home for a visit and found a book on this type of patchwork. She set about making folded shapes of the basic patterns, and found the techniques very versatile and inspiring. Because each folded patchwork square is a self-contained unit it is possible to make them as you go along, during a busy day, watching television, or on holiday. Joining the pieces when you have the time and space almost makes an instant quilt. Following the same basic techniques, a wide variety of squares, hexagons and circles in contrasting patches can be made. Once sewn together they can be used to make attractive patterns of crosses, diamonds, chevrons, flowers, stars and much more. This comprehensive introduction to this fascinating technique provides 20 easy-to-follow projects for creating quilts, throws, wall hangings and mats.
