Original Three-Dimensional Flower Designs in Fabric and Silk Ribbon
Origami with a Twist of Silk Ribbon
Folded Flowers, Kumiko Sudo re-invents fabric origami, a technique she
introduced to quilters in her best-selling book, Fabled Flowers. Here,
Kumiko deftly intertwines silk ribbon among her fabrics, adding a shimmer
of sunlight to her miraculous flower designs.
Twenty-four small quilts each offers a sensational origami flower crafted
from fabric and ribbon. Kumiko helps readers choose colors that enhance
the designs, fold fabrics and ribbons into intricate shapes, and embellish
their work with delicate sashiko stitching. To show just how versatile
fabric and ribbon origami can be, Kumiko offers new designs for six
exquisite purses, featuring flowers for every season.
Sudo is an internationally acclaimed fiber artist and author
of eight quilting bestsellers. Her extraordinary books have inspired
western quilters to embrace Japanese techniques and aesthetics.
