1 - 2 weeks availability
This is a gorgeous and practical guide to combining Japanese fabrics and traditional Oriental quilting style with fast, super-easy techniques. All the quilt designs are accompanied with beautiful photography and clear diagrams to support the text instructions. Each of the ten quilts is made up in two different colourways for maximum inspiration, and instructions are shown for how to finish them using both as hand and machine quilted designs. Quilt designs include traditional Japanese motifs such as fans and kimonos. The instructions include traditional Japanese quilting techniques such as Sashiko. As an added bonus, there are also simple-to-make homestyle projects for using up leftover quilt blocks. Japanese patchwork style is incredibly versatile, and the finished projects will be at home in the most modern interiors as well as rustic cottages. These quilted projects include a Rice Bag, Floor Cushion and Table Runner.
Susan Briscoe was introduced to Japanese quilting techniques in the early 1990s when teaching English in northern Japan. She is the author of The Ultimate Sashiko Sourcebook and Japanese Sashiko Inspirations. For more information visit: www.susanbriscoe.co.uk
