A book as popular and well-reviewed as Quiltagami cries out for a sequel—and here it is, with 19 new and exciting projects that range from animal purses to scrapbook wall hangings. This fun craft combines quilting with origami, and has intrigued needleworkers eager to add new techniques to their repertoire. Just take some fabric, fold it to make incredible dimensional blocks and items, and stitch it up. The resulting bag, pillow, or hanging has an extraordinary depth, texture, and richness that captivates the eye and invites the hand to touch. Make an adorable Flamingo Tote, a lovely Lotus Blossom Wall Hanging, a comfy Butterfly Quilt, an Eight-Point Star Pocket, and 5 pretty pillows to adorn any room in the house.

This author has taken the ancient art of Japanese paper folding, origami, and applied it to quilting. This appears as folded squares that are appliqued in place after quilting, giving the quilt a bas relief appearance. Read full review
