A nice introduction to adding a Japanese touch This book is full of ideas for sewing projects with Japanese flair. It does seem to be meant more for beginner-intermediate sewers, as there are quite a few pages on how to do piecing and appliqué (by hand and machine), as well as basic embroidery. However, the introductions to dip-dyeing, stenciling and gilding are nice extras that you don't often see in quilting books. Overall the designs are fun, elegant and easy to make. My favorite part of the book is the templates and motifs - they're rather simple, but still good additions to a design library. I give this book four stars out of five because although it's well done, it lacks depth and inspiration, especially compared to other books on the subject. Wonderful as an introduction and for beginner-intermediate sewers and quilters, but those already familiar with Japanese motifs and textiles will gain only a little new insight. ( )
