"The wonderful thing about pieced blocks and appliques of houses are that anyone can easily create one of their own. Even if you start with the same basic house pattern, just by changing the fabric used for the walls or roof will make it completely unique. You can get creative and think about changing the shape of a door, or making it appear that these is a light shining out of a window. You can even add trees outside the house. It is almost as though you are young again and playing with blocks, putting them together however you desire." Ms Saito's uses the country 'house' motif in the Japanese taupe color scheme for her quilting on bags, purses, and pouches, on wall hangings and quilts in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. Explore with her this charming design element so right for self expression and be inspired by these small wonders to create larger quilts using her style and techniques.
