Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Looking to fuse Japanese design and modern techniques in your quilting projects? With Quilting Line + Color, you will explore color, shape, stitching, and fabric ideas from internationally known weaver, dyer, fabric artist, teacher, and quilter Yoshiko Jinzenji.

Yoshiko brings a fresh, contemporary vision to the quilting scene with more than 30 gorgeous projects, accompanied by precise instructions and detailed illustrations. From bed-size quilts to bags and pillows, you will learn to create innovative pieces while trying out new and traditional techniques. In Quilting Line + Color, Yoshiko delves into the interplay of shape and fabric, set off to striking effect with white fabric and stitching. Her asymmetrical and graphic use of color takes on a fresh, painterly feel. She shares her artistry and philosophy with you as she teaches you how to cut, piece, and stitch a variety of designs—from patchwork and innovative uses of appliqué and reverse appliqué to layered transparent fabrics and handstitching.

Quilting Line + Color gives you an uncomplicated approach to adventurous yet beautifully balanced quilts.
