Japanese master quilter, Yoko Saito, returns with an all-new collection of house projects to build and enjoy! Twenty bags, totes, purses, pouches, wall quilts, and more celebrate two sides of Ms. Saito's work,  her traditional patchwork roots and her fanciful applique creations.

Create a city skyline, construct a tiny town, stitch and frame single dwellings, or applique a giant mushroom house owned by two little ladybugs--so many fresh ideas to savor. Inspired by her travels throughout Europe and the Scandinavian countries, Yoko Saito clearly feels right at home with houses--they reflect the warmth of the world around us.

Translated into English for the first time!
20 projects, 96 color pages.

I Love Houses reflects Yoko Saito’s observations of houses on her travels throughout mainland Europe and Scandinavia. It introduces 20 new patterns in her characteristic and unique aesthetic, simple enough for beginner sewers--with room for more advanced sewers to experiment--and suitable for anyone who loves Saito’s work. From the gorgeous City Skyline wall hanging (which combines architectural styles from around the world), to the inventive house-shaped sewing box (which hides an ingenious pin cushion in its roof), each project feels both practical and like a work of art.

The book also provides a clear overview of quilting basics, a list of essential notions and tools, as well as embroidery stitching techniques and best practices for choosing fabrics. Because of the emphasis on interesting fabrics and hand-quilting, every product of a Yoko Saito pattern will be unique; just one of many reasons to have this book in your sewing room.
