East-Meets-West Quilts

Explore improv quilting—creating a quilt of your own design through the process of discovery and discernment. Add remarkable Japanese fabrics and your quilt becomes something out-of-the-ordinary!

The Hachi Quilt Manifesto, with five easy rules, leads you into the unknown of improv quilting. To encourage complete freedom, the fifth rule of the Manifesto states: Break any rule you like.

Fourteen main projects, with fabric measurements and instructions, explain the improv process of thinking and doing.

The last two chapters detail all the production steps for making your quilt.
