Product description

Modern Japanese quilting uses Eastern and Western techniques to create quilts of extraordinary beauty. This book is a treasury of more than 125 block designs, characterized by their use of beautiful oriental textiles, unusual motifs and striking colour combinations. Choose from patchwork, applique, and sashiko blocks, organized into themed sections based on traditional family crest, parquetry, and pictorial block designs. All the techniques you'll need are clearly demonstrated. Each design features a photograph, clear template, recipe of materials and instructions for making the block. At-a-glance icons indicate skill level and techniques used, and you'll find failsafe block combinations for stylish quilts. All blocks are the same size, so that they can be mixed and matched, tessellated for all-over pattern, or combined in spectacular sampler quilts.
