24 Original Three-Dimensional Flower Designs in Fabric and Silk Ribbon

Folded Flowers

Fabric Origami with a Twist of Silk Ribbon

In 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.

Kumiko 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.
