Korean Patchwork and Quilting
Written by master instructor Choi Yangsook, Korean Patchwork and Quilting takes you step by step through the art of assembling pieces of lightweight fabric, by means of invisible seams, to create contemporary pieces for your home and life.
Projects in this book include; hangings for walls and windows, table runners and table cloths, bags and pouches, Zakka accessories, quirky jewellery and more.
This Korean folk craft has played an important role in Korean culture for centuries. The distinct 'window pane' appearance of a bojagi piece often resembles a colourful modern abstract painting or stained glass window, but can also be made as a single colour piece for an elegant look. Lessons, diagrams and templates, along with a few simple knotting and embroidery techniques, present a wide range of projects so that novices can try their hand and more experienced quilters can enjoy a satisfying challenge.
