This Beautiful Book
Yoko Saito's Japanese Quilting Piece by Piece has been my go-to " dream of making each and every one of these projects" book of 2012. This year I hope to take the plunge and give it (well at least one project, anyway) a try. This exceptional book features a range of work from sculptural bags, clutches and cases to wall hangings.
Based in traditional techniques and featuring rich earth tones, Yoko's designs are exquisite works of functional art. Generous instruction and a full compliment of paper patterns make these projects accessible and attractive to hand quilters, machine quilters and appliqué fans alike.
Japanese Quilting has been my introduction to artist Yoko Saito. I am enchanted!
Now, where to start?
