Japanese Quilt Blocks to Mix and Match
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 oriental textiles, unusual motifs and striking colour combinations.
Choose from patchwork, appliqué and sashiko blocks, organized into themed sections based on geometric, pictorial and family crest designs. All the techniques you need are clearly demonstrated.
Each design features a photograph, clear instructional diagram or template, fabric palette and cutting guide, and instructions for making the block. At-a-glance icons indicate the skill level and techniques used.
All of the blocks can be mixed and matched, and you will find examples of fail-safe block combinations for sytlish quilts, from tessellated all-over patterns to spectacular sampler quilts.
