Item Description...
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I LOVE THIS BOOK  Sep 1, 2008
Applique, fabric origami and quilting with easy to follow directions, clear photos and diagrams and full size templates, a must for anyone looking for oriental blocks. I also have Omiyage, another must have and will be looking for any other books by Kumiko.
Style and grace  Jan 23, 2008
The images we recognize in Japanese art and quilting are now accessible to the American needle. Such grace and style are yours with the patterns in this book.
Some good ideas ...  Aug 8, 2007
I liked the book, BUT it was one of Kumiko Sado's weaker attempts. I think she is running out of ideas, frankly. If you have any of her other books, I really would not waste money on purchasing this one, unless you can't live without her entire set in your library.
Kake-Jiku: Images of Japan   Jul 9, 2007
This is just what I was looking for. I am now in my Asian quilt phase of life and the patterns and images are great. Can't wait to get into my Asian fabrics and try these patterns!
Can't wait to get started!  May 12, 2007
This book is so wonderful, and full on creative ways to use fabric. I can't wait to get started on some of the projects. The problem is deciding what ones to do. I just had to run out, and get on line, and buy some Asian fabric. Now I just have to find the time to make all the projects I decide on. And I have to decide if I'm going to make them into a quilt, wall hanging, or give them away.
