My apologies…I forgot to tell to you about the BOOK that ‘Buds in a Basket Quilt’ came out of. (This is the project that I am currently working on…see yesterdays’ post) Several of you asked about the title of the book so I thought I had better share it with you while the thought is STILL there…! :o)
If you love the work of Japanese Quilters then you will love this book… ‘A Bouquet of Quilts’! All of the projects in this book came from “Quilts Japan” a prominent Japanese magazine. If you have ever seen quilts made by fellow quilters from Japan then you KNOW the skill and workmanship that goes into their quilts is amazing! They are truly works of art as their attention to detail is out of this world! I know all of their quilts stopped me in my tracks while at the Road to California Quilt Show…INCREDIBLE QUILTS!!
Here are a few of the quilts taken out of this book…please excuse the quality of the pictures!
This LOG CABIN quilt called ‘Rainbow Garden Log Cabin Quilt’ is visually stunning! Each block is made up of four 2 1/4” paper-pieced Log Cabin Blocks! Yowzers! Not for the weak at heart, that’s for sure…BUT they also include instructions for 4” blocks for us sissies!
I recognised this wee wall hanging as it was featured in Quiltmania magazine…and is on MY TO DO LIST!! Quiltmania often features Japanese quilters and I have to admit that they ALWAYS have me drooling! (this quilt is called ‘Watering Can Bouquet Sampler Quilt’ by Yoko Saito)
‘Dutch Treat Tulip Basket Quilt’ by Masaki Yamamoto is lovely…Check out the Xs in the border…like a rows of little kisses floating around the quilt!
If you LOVE the work of Japanese quilters than you NEED to see my PINTEREST board labelled Japanese Quilts…talk about EYE CANDY!! This board is not for the weak at heart…guaranteed to have you blubbering like a baby!! Go HERE…but don’t say I didn’t warn you!! AMAZING quilts with incredible workmanship!
Have a magical Monday and happy stitching!~P
