Korean Patchwork Quilting

37 Modern Bojagi Projects
Choi Yangsook

Description

From its origins as wrapping cloths made from scraps of fabric to its place in contemporary textile art shows, Bojagi – the traditional art of Korean patchwork quilting – is a wonderfully versatile mode of expression that can transform a room or a wardrobe. This Korean folk craft has played an important role in Korean culture for centuries. The distinct "window pane" appearance of a Bojagi quilt often resembles a modern abstract painting or stained glass window, but can also be made of single-colour fabric for an elegant look.

Choi Yangsook teaches you step-by-step techniques through the art of assembling bits of lightweight fabric, by means of invisible seams, to create contemporary pieces for your home and life. Lessons, diagrams and templates, along with a few simple knotting and embroidery techniques, present a wide range of projects so that novices can try their hand and more experienced quilters can enjoy a satisfying challenge.
