Sobre o livro
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.
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.
