20 Patchwork Embroidery Projects with illustrated instructions.
Ms Saito's artistic use of embroidery is found on almost all of her works, embellishing quilts, wall hangings, and bags, using her signature Japanese taupe fabrics. She is as much an expert embroiderer as an expert quilter. Her original embroidery designs in this book includes chapters on Animals and Living Creatures, Basic Necessities, Trees, Applique & Embroidery, Piecing and Embroidery, Numbers and the Alphabet, Borders and Repeating Patterns, and scenes of Buildings and Trees. Explore with her charming embroidery designs as embellishment elements with her detailed instructions, embroidery basics, and how to transfer designs to fabrics and use all of the patterns in the book.
