9781855857704: Japanese Inspirations: Patchwork and Quilting from the Floating World

Taking as her inspiration the traditional fabrics, motifs and techniques of Japan, Janet Haigh has created a stunning range of contemporary patchwork designs. Many of the piecing and embellishing methods described - combining hexagons and triangles, simple turned-edge applique, broderie perse, for example - are already well known to Western quilters but it is Janet Haigh's choice of fabrics and colourways, from cool tie-dyed cottons to rich brocades, that gives the projects an exotic feel. The simplicity and exquisite beauty of Janpanes style make this a beautiful book to use and treasure.
