With a blend of Eastern and Western influences, Kumiko Sudo reinvents fabric origami with 24 new small quilt designs intertwining silk ribbons, cotton, and other fabrics. Choosing two or three Japanese flowers that bloom in each month of the year, each quilt presents an origami flower, its buds and leaves crafted from fabric and ribbon. Six additional purse designs feature a flower for each season. Step-by-step colour drawings help to make the projects easy-to-understand and follow. Introductions to each featured flower, lyrical haiku poems, elegant Japanese calligraphy, and watercolour paintings provide a glimpse into the rich cultural heritage that has inspired these designs. Full colour photographs of projects in authentic Japanese settings help provide a complete sense of the final product.
