You'll also discover large wall quilts as well as smaller projects, from fabric baskets and handbags to an apron and fabric cushions--all with enclosed paper patterns.In her masterful style, Yoko Saito uses beautiful and meticulous stitching while still embracing the wabi sabi concept of imperfection, using odd-shaped pieces and quilting with a free mind.
