From Japanese master quilt artist Yoko Saito comes this collection of exquisite quilts, bags, and more--each immersed in tradition yet refreshingly modern in style. In Yoko Saito’s Beautiful Bags, Pouches & Quilts, Ms. Saito shares 25 all-new designs that spotlight her immaculate attention to the tiniest details--pleats, tucks, scallops, and whimsical motifs infuse each piece with originality. Using patchwork, appliqué, and embroidery, Ms. Saito surprises by broadening her celebrated taupe color palettes. Projects that spotlight nature-inspired motifs and fascinating geometric patterns include everything from small quilts and mini pouches to roomy handbags and a notepad cover. Instructions and full-sized pullout patterns for making each project are included.
