Took a chance from the cover and title alone and I'm very happy with my newest "find" that combines sashiko (Japanese handquilting) with tropical and Asian inspired designs. Fantastic suggestions for fabric usage and great modern adaptation of using sashiko in a non-traditional way.

Paradise Stitched by Sylvia Pippen has a very bright, eye-catching cover that entices and intrigues you to find out more about the marriage between Sashiko and Applique.The book begins with a description of traditional Sashiko, which originated in Japan, giving examples and traditional patterns along with a comprehensive list of materials needed before moving onto the techniques involved for marking and stitching a design. The next chapter looks at appliqué methods using Mylar and paper templates then moves on to the fabric requirements for the flowers and birds in the quilts. Sylvia comes from Hawaii and her quilts are influenced by the Polynesian styles of quilting - she explains how she designs a quilt then introduces the reader to embellishing the quilt with embroidery. There is a short section on methods of finishing the quilt and a gallery of quilts made mainly by Sylvia but also from other members of her family and friends. The second half of the book gives patterns and instructions for completing 6 quilts using the methods described in the first half combining sashiko and appliqué. I found this book inspirational and a fresh approach to appliqué
