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 appliqué, 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 Japanese style make this a beautiful book to use and treasure.
Contains clear, step-by-step instructions for all the patchwork, quilting and appliqué techniques.
