This book focuses on using the traditional Japanese neutral and taupe colors which are so much a part of the Japanese aesthetic and are so popular today and can be used in conjunction with Susan Briscoe's Japanese Quilt Blocks book.

The author shows the reader how to design quilts using styles and colors to create beautiful, Japanese-style quilts. The book covers materials, color and patterns and then moves on to equipment and techniques such as piecing by machine, part-sewn seams, half squares and corner squares, applique methods and finishing - embroidery and embellishments as well as joining blocks and finally assembling. The book uses an interesting range of colors and textures and provides the reader with 125 patterns.
