Book Description

25 May 2009
Create beautiful accessories for your home with this gorgeous guide to Japanese quilting style. Focusing on traditional designs and textiles it is the perfect book for quilters of all abilities who want to introduce Japanese style into their homes with ingenious quick-to-stitch projects.

The 10 projects, which range from bags to wall hangings, include traditional Japanese quilting techniques such as sashiko and motifs such as sakura or cherry blossom which features heavily in Oriental designs. The projects evoke the simplicity of traditional Japanese decor by using well-known pieced patterns, such as fan blocks and strip quilts, together with charming applique.

Easy-to-follow step instructions and diagrams offer clever ways to use panels and large-scale patterns to best effect, with helpful advice on fabric choice throughout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but not foolproof(ed) 22 Sep 2009
By Elaine B Reader TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have had this book long enough to start making things from it.
There are ERRORS, - on PAGE 40 you will need 12 white squares not 10;
PAGE 52 states that the Momoyama holdall has a finished size of 28 x 45 - it ends up around 16 x 14 (thank goodness)and I believe that the cutting instructions for the lining fabric contains the 2 panels measuring 3" x 16" shown in the diagram on page 53 as being made from the main fabric.
PAGE 84 the blocks say to square up to 10" - but the cushions made from the same blocks (p87) clearly square up to 9"......just be sure to read and make sense of anything you make from the book before you start cutting.
Who proof read this? Did anyone?
I think some of the instructions for making the beautiful squishy bags could be clearer. More diagrams and possibly a bit of step by step info would have improved this area.
I really like all the bags, the needlecase, pincushion, scissor case and purse, the geisha girls are lovely, so a worthwhile book showcasing Japanese style fabrics - just be aware there may be other errors so take care when working your way through these items don't cut before you're sure what you need.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful Instructions - Great Ideas 25 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The ideas and pictures in this book are wonderful and I have made the pin cushion, needle case and Momoyama bag. However, I find the instructions very difficult to follow. There is not enough information in the instructions and I think the authors take for granted a higher level of knowledge than the reader might have. I have just tried to do the Hoko bag and am totally frustrated as to how to piece the windmill construction together - it just does not make sense!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book 1 July 2009
I bought this book at Sandown Quilting Championships from Ann Muxworthy one of the authors and what can i say. The photographs are really beautiful and although the panel used on the front cover of the book has sold out there are plenty more similar ones to chose from in shops and on the internet. The instructions are simple to follow and there are many projects to make from small purses, pin cushions etc to larger items like wall hangings and bed quilts for the more experienced. After many years of quilting I always stayed clear of japanese fabrics but when i saw how beautiful they were and their depth of colour, I just had to give them a go and bought many fabrics and the book home with me from the show. I have to say, I would like to make all of the things in this book and maybe one day i will.

5.0 out of 5 stars Georgeous!! 16 Jun 2009
I got this book originally because I wanted to make myself a new handbag using some of my stash fabrics. Having seen the whole book, I want to make everything! The photography is beautiful, the instructions easy to follow, and the fabrics make you want to go out and shop for everything Japanese! And I love the Geisha dolls. Lots of my friends and family will be getting stuff made from this book. Definitely worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Japanese Quilt Style 18 Oct 2009
Beautiful book with some lovely projects to make. Pity fabrics are not easily come by in the UK and some are even discontinued. So making them exactly the same is virtually impossible. Nevertheless the 40 triangle bag is brilliant to make in whatever fabrics are to hand.
