New Classic Patchwork: 78 Original Motifs & 10 Projects
Original patchwork blocks from a master quilter!
New Classic Patchwork is the sequel to Yoko Saito's Housewarming Patchwork and completes her collection of 156 patchwork designs. A renowned quilt artist, Yoko offers quilters a new cornucopia of original block designs in her signature taupe quilting style. In this collection, Yoko brings her matchless interpretation of folk-inspired blocks: stars, crosses, triangles, pinwheels, circles, and other geometric shapes. Though the blocks are small in scale, each template is gridded and can be easily increased to any size.
You can use these blocks in your own creations or make one of the ten beautiful projects included in the book. These include Yoko's signature bags, baskets, and pouches in her uniquely charming style, with all templates on an enclosed pattern sheet.
Yoko Saito's reputation for precise needlework and taupe quilting have garnered her international fame. The author of numerous books, she lives in a suburb of Tokyo and is expanding her operations to France, Italy, and Taiwan. In 2008, she commemorated thirty years of creative activities with the Yoko Saito Quilt Exhibition.
