Origami traditionally uses paper instead of fabric, but fabric is a durable material that can also be embellished with beads, embroidery and numerous other techniques. Folding fabric squares is quicker than piecing and sweing, and more forgiving than paper - just iron out any mistakes and refold. Folding fabric is a way to make quilts more visually interesting without adding complex cutting and piecing. It also gives a great new three-dimensional effect to quilts.
This book is the complete guide to folded quilts. It covers the history and development, basic folding techniques illustrated with clear diagrams, and essential quilting tools and skills. It also includes 20 great quilt projects using folding, each illustrated with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions.
It will be essential reading for anyone interested in folding techniques, whether they are a beginner or just wish to learn new skills.
