about

A dazzling collection of 14 Kake-jiku—traditional Japanese hand-painted scrolls often hung in entryways—is featured in this craft guide. Often created to celebrate the changing seasons and bestow good fortune on a household, these innovative Kake-jiku designs featured are made with contemporary fabrics. Each image is a picture-window into Japanese culture, and the accompanying text explains the symbolism of each design. All patterns can be constructed using a unique style of Japanese appliqué, and several are embellished with fabric-origami flowers. Several of the patterns included are enhanced by beautiful and intricate sashiko stitching, and a section on technique describes appliqué and stitching methods and provides instructions for making all-in-one wraparound borders. Glorious photography, step-by-step color drawings, and watercolor drawings enhance this art-inspired craft book, and a bound-in template pack—complete with full-size templates made from durable, reinforced paper—allows for multiple uses of individual template pieces.
Kumiko Sudo is an internationally acclaimed quilt and fiber artist and the author of East Quilts West, Fabled Flowers, Flower Origami, Folded Flowers, Kokoro No Te, and Omiyage. She lives in Eugene, Oregon.
