Quiltagami: The Art of Fabric Folding

by

Quiltagami: The Art of Fabric Folding Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A book as popular and well-reviewed as Quiltagami cries out for a sequel—and here it is, with 19 new and exciting projects that range from animal purses to scrapbook wall hangings. This fun craft combines quilting with origami, and has intrigued needleworkers eager to add new techniques to their repertoire. Just take some fabric, fold it to make incredible dimensional blocks and items, and stitch it up. The resulting bag, pillow, or hanging has an extraordinary depth, texture, and richness that captivates the eye and invites the hand to touch. Make an adorable Flamingo Tote, a lovely Lotus Blossom Wall Hanging, a comfy Butterfly Quilt, an Eight-Point Star Pocket, and 5 pretty pillows to adorn any room in the house.

 

Praise for QUILTAGAMI:

 

“Practiced quilters will have fun putting their talents to work in a different way; crafters who like paper folding may delight in [this] new challenge.”—Booklist

 

 “Takes [the] technique to a new level.”—Quilters Newsletter Magazine

 

 “Anyone who loves rich texture will celebrate this tantalizing combination.”—Sew News

Synopsis:

“Clear color photos and step-by-step drawings illustrate the folding and stitching process.... Practiced quilters will have fun putting their talents to work in a different way; crafters who like paper folding may delight in [this] new challenge.”—Booklist.

“Takes [the] technique to a new level.”—Quilters’ Newsletter Magazine.

“Anyone who loves rich texture will celebrate this tantalizing combination.”—SewNews.

It's a thoroughly new textile art, an ingenious mix of two of the most popular crafts: quilting and origami. Instead of two-sided colored paper, the animals, leaves, flowers, and figures created for centuries in Japan are reinterpreted in fabric relief-and the resulting quilt blocks can become long-lasting, exquisitely stitched items. Just follow these designs to create irresistibly tactile sculptural quiltagami blankets, ornaments, and more. The richly colored Evening Sky Pillow has shimmering golden star blocks that stand out against deep blue backing; appliqué beading in the center adds yet another layer of depth. A dimensional Lotus Flower Ornament seems to take root, blossom, and grow right out of the material. Give baby a Come Play with Me Quilt with adorable stitched on animals and toys. Or create and display a vivid Tropical Fish Block. You'll go wild for this beautiful, original art form.
