three april giveaways!
By Patricia Belyea
In Houses, Houses, Houses!, world-famous quilter Yoko Saito shows you how to create a quilted house—from one-dimensional designs to fully dimensional projects. Once you design your own house block, there are 34 projects for you to explore. These span handbags, pouches, carry-all, tissue case, pencil case and wall quilts—with pattern sheets included.
Yoko Saito’s Woolwork book focuses on quilts, bags and other projects made primarily of wool and yarn-dyed homespuns. Instructions are included for rug hooking, needle-felting, piecework and appliqué. The projects, practical with a touch of whimsy, encourage the use of used woolen clothing.
In her book Story Quilts, teacher, designer and shop owner Yukari Takahara introduces her own story and shares a gallery of 37 quilts and vignettes based on depictions of her life. With 14 pages of pattern ideas as well as step-by-step directions for her techniques and approach to choosing materials, Yukari inspires everyone to represent special times and people in their own lives through the medium of quilting.
