Book Description

14 Sep 2010
A companion volume to our bestselling Japanese Quilt Blocks, this book focuses on using the traditional Japanese neutral and taupe colours which are so much a part of the Japanese aesthetic and are so popular today. As in the first book, the author shows the reader how to design quilts using styles and colours to create beautiful, Japanese-style quilts. The book covers materials, colour and patterns and then moves on to equipment and techniques such as piecing by machine, part-sewn seams, half squares and corner squares, applique methods and finishing - embroidery and embellishments as well as joining blocks and finally assembling. The book is very different from the first volume in that it uses a completely different range of colours and provides the reader with 125 new patterns.

4.0 out of 5 stars Japanese Taupe Quilt Blocks 4 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent introduction to the use of this colour palette, and a reminder of how beautiful as well as comforting these understated colours can be. There are templates and instructions for over 100 blocks, and a number of very useable smaller projects along the way.
I was very pleased with this book, and I plan to make one or two of the smaller projects before embarking on a quilt. Another excellent book from Sue Briscoe.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delivery delay - please read! 17 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback
I'm the author of this book. We found out today that there has been a delay getting the books (printed in China I think) into the UK - the books should have been in the distributor's warehouse by Tuesday, but haven't arrived. The publishers have been chasing this today and apparently there has been a delay and the new delivery date given is October 1st - this could vary a little either way, due to Customs etc.

Books printed in China are shipped by sea, usually taking up to two months from departure to arrival.

Of course, this means that there are NO copies of this book available in the UK until this shipment arrives - other bookshops will not have it either.

So if you have ordered your copy, either via Amazon or via me, many apologies for the delay in getting your copy of the book. Please wait as patiently as you can - if you enjoyed "Japanese Quilt Blocks to Mix and Match" or just love the Japanese taupe fabrics, I think you'll enjoy this all new block selection.

This is a superb resource book not only for Japanese quilt fans but also for traditional quilters who line to use tonal value to enhance their quilts. A really excellent selection of blocks. Yet another winner from Susan in my opinion

This is a beautiful book inspiring even. However, the templates are not good to use and complicate design using these blocks.
