I've long been an admirer of Japanese sewing and craft books, so I was very excited to see one published in English. I borrowed it, made two projects, and decided that I needed a copy for my own. The projects are very simple, instructions easy to follow, and the beautiful photography is a source of inspiration. Each time I pick it up I find a new project to make, or a fabric combination, or a fresh look I was to re-create in fabric.

This book is pretty. Very pretty. The photography, the patterns, the book design. All pretty. So as an inspiration book, this gets 5 stars. As a pattern book, eh, knock it back to 3. The designs are all very simple, many very similar to others on the market, simply modified to be more "patchwork-y". Anyone with basic sewing skills could figure out quite a few of these patterns on their own. However, not everyone has an interest in doing the math to make their own patterns and these are all clearly written out for you. The fact that they are also now translated into English is a big bonus. For that reason, for a newer sewer or someone less accustom to deciphering japanese patterns, this book will be a real treat. I suggest flipping through the pages at a local B&N before deciding if its worth your time. I don't know that I would have payed full price at said B&N but personally, I found that even as just an inspiration book, it was well worth the Amazon price.

I love the projects in this book, but the directions are lack consistency and clarity. Possibly for a expert sewer there is no issue, but for an intermediate novice, the directions are confusing. In some places it states to add 1/4 seam and in others it's been added. And the measurements are not average measurements (e.g. 1/2", 1/4"), but uses 7/8" in many of the projects, which is not even on my ruler. I still plan to work on projects from this book, but it's more of a challenge than I wanted.

I have only read this - not sewn anything yet - but the reading was good. Instructions are clear. Not for a beginning seamstress, in my opinion.
