East-Meets-West Quilts

Tiptoe into Improv with Japanese-Inspired Designs
Patricia Belyea

Description

Patricia Belyea offers improv instruction and shares her appealing Quilt Manifesto of five simple rules. While providing quilters with a starting point, the fifth rule of the Manifesto, Break any rule you like, opens the door to creative freedom. (However, the solid instructions allow even the rule-breakers to create beautiful quilts on the first try).

Fourteen projects combine authentic Japanse yukata cottons and contemporary fabrics; each is finished with bold hand stitching. The quilt-making process is presented in detail, and each quilt shows the irresistible wabi-sabi influence of Japanese design. The sense of discovery in each project is like nothing else available.
