CRAFTS & HOBBIES / Quilts & Quilting
A book that will make you see fabric in a whole new way!

From its origins as wrapping cloths made from scraps of fabric to its place in contemporary textile art shows, Bojagi—the traditional art of Korean patchwork quilting—is a wonderfully versatile mode of expression that can transform a room or a wardrobe.

Written by master instructor Choi Yangsook, Korean Patchwork Quilting teaches you step-by-step techniques through the art of assembling bits of lightweight fabric, by means of invisible seams, to create contemporary pieces for your home and life.

The 37 projects in this book include:
  • Hangings for walls and windows
  • Exquisite table runners and table cloths
  • Delicate bags and pouches
  • Zakka ("miscellaneous") accessories
  • Quirky jewelry pieces
  • And more!

This Korean folk craft has played an important role in Korean culture for centuries. The distinct "window pane" appearance of a Bojagi quilt often resembles a modern abstract painting or stained glass window, but can also be made of single-color fabric for an elegant look.

Lessons, diagrams and templates, along with a few simple knotting and embroidery techniques, present a wide range of projects so that novices can try their hand and more experienced quilters can enjoy a satisfying challenge.

Choi Yangsook is a master instructor in Bojagi piecework, Korean embroidery and the culture behind Korean textile arts. Her work has been featured in exhibitions around the world for more than twenty years. In 1995, she created Karamusi Studio, a guide to workshops, literature, materials and exhibitions on Korean quilting and embroidery arts. (karamusi.co.jp)
