By Jane Rosenthal VINE VOICE on September 30, 2012
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Yoko Saito's work for many years and was very excited about this new book. I love the wonderful taupe and earth tone colors of her work, and the projects in this book are wonderful examples of this use of color. The directions seem thorough and clear, but I admit I haven't had a chance to try them and I also feel a bit intimidated by the precise piecing and appliqué of her work - but its inspiring at the same time as intimidating. My only complaint is that the pictures seem rather dark; they are clear enough to see the projects, but I feel that the projects would stand out more and benefit from better lighting (thus 4 stars rather than 5).

If you are considering purchasing this book, you should know that most of the patterns are for purses. There are 29 projects in the book, and of these 3 are quilts, 18 are purses, and there are also patterns for baskets, an apron and cushions. I love Saito's bags so I am happy with the book, but for those that are expecting quilts might be disappointed. I didn't think the description of the book described the projects well, so hopefully that's helpful for you. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.

I wanted to really like this book. I'm a Japanophile, a quilter and I love, love, love Japanese taupe fabrics. As mentioned by another reviewer the photos, while very nice, are dark. And taupe fabrics, by their nature, are dark also. But I was particularly disappointed by the very brief and incomplete instructions given. I think it would be very difficult to successfully complete any of these items using these instructions. Also most of the pieces involve applique but the title of the book is "Japanese quilting" - not quite an appropriate title. I still like the book, I'm not going to return it, but I really doubt whether I will ever make anything from it.

I bought this book 'cause I've been checking out the purse on the front cover for quite a few months and was delighted to learn there was a book/pattern. I whipped up the purse on the front cover over the course of a weekend. Some instructions are not complete enough, but I love so many of the projects. Lots of hand sewing/applique going on thruout. I would change some of the methods to my own way of doing things but if someone wants to follow these instructions, the projects do come out. I just would do some things differently, but I am an experienced sewer. Love the book & project. Adapting some of the surface treatments to my own patterns.

I have just received this book and it is what I expected and more. It offers 29 projects, mostly bags - do not be fooled by the title - there are only two or three quilts. There is a lot of appliqué and a little of embroidery, the instructions in my opinion are very clear, the projects are beautiful and the photos are good. The color range is what you see on the title - neutral. If you like taupe, beige and brown, and tone-in-tone, this is for you!

The author's technique is accomplished and the designs are impressive. Just flipping through the pages makes me want to take a needle in hand and start right away!

This book broadens the horizons of quilters and inspires crafters. Beautiful ideas but sewing novices may not have all the instructions they need. I am a handbag nut so the fact that many of the projects involve purses is a plus for me. The actual quilt projects are moderate in size making them less intimidating to those of use who don't have a lot of time. The color selections look modern and sophisticated while the crafts themselves are timeless.

Just received this book a couple of days ago and was impressed with the contents. It has some great techniques to try. I did find that the patterns were rather small however and think that I would enlarge them when I make some of the items. Maybe an average size of items would be helpful in the advertising blurb as I did expect that they would have been larger. However, generally a lovely book to use.

I first saw Ms Saito's work three years ago in her a booth at the Houston International Quilt Festival. Of all the wonderful work I saw then, I kept going back to look at her offerings, and the items in this book are typical of that exquisite combination of perfectly simple, yet extraordinarily well executed beauty. She is an amazing artist and there is much to learn from this book for fiber artists at all levels.

I have wriiten a review of this book before. I can sum it up in saying that the photos were too dark and the illustrations too few. It makes a great coffee book but not a great how to book.For inspiration only!
