Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Wat had mastered techniques of origami many years before learning to quilt. She had used origami for home decorating and gift-wrapping but had never seen the connection between quilting and traditional Japanese paper folding. Then one day, she tried folding fabric instead of paper and began an exploration that has culminated in this book. A quilt and wearable-art designer, she now uses folded fabric to add dimension and surface interest to her designs and teaches the technique to quilters eager to expand their skills. This book includes detailed instructions for reproducing in fabric eight basic paper folding designs: folded stars, diamonds, inside-out flowers, folded roses, twirled roses, pinwheels, polygon flowers, and kimonos. Once these fabric-folding techniques are mastered, the reader is free to move on to the 22 projects (vests, quilts, pillows, etc.) featuring the origami designs. This book is a good choice for expanding public library quilting collections. One caution: even though the quilting projects use traditional origami folding techniques, their modern designs are unrelated to traditional Japanese quilting. Libraries wishing to acquire books on Japanese quilting should consider Kumiko Sudo's Circles of the East: Quilt Designs from Ancient Japanese Family Crests (NTC/Contemporary Bks., 1997) or Takako Onoyama and others' Honoring the Seasons: Patterns from Japan's Quilt House Yama (Martingale, 1996. o.p.).

    Very Disappointed

    Folding directions seem to omit necessary information and photos are not defined enough to follow. After much practice with both paper and fabric I have been unsucessful in completion. Having seen a demostration on T.V. I feel I have been misled.

    Fantastic is the perfect word for this great book

    I am a relative newcomer to fabric crafts, and I had no problem with the instructions. The projects are gorgeous and varied. I like the fact that there are projects other than quilts, including vests and pillows. And I found the flowers, stars and kimonos easy to adapt for use in my own projects. I made a vest for my mother and am currently working on the Playing with Pinwheels quilt for my baby neice, and find the pattern and instructions easy to follow. I highly reccomend this book.

    Too much fun!!!

    I have been having so much fun trying out the techniques in this book. The folding instructions are really clear and the quilts are beautiful. I recommend this book highly for anyone who wants to add a new twist to their traditional quilts.

    not what I expected

    there are not as many techniques as I expected, the instructions are very vague and actually have missing information (like square size), it doesn't detail how to work with the folded squares when done.
