Renowned Japanese quilter and teacher Yoko Saito is known for her mastery of taupe color palettes. In this book, Ms. Saito explores interpretations of quilted houses, from one-dimensional designs to silhouettes. In addition to teaching you how to design your own house blocks, there are 34 step-by-step projects, including handbags, pouches, a carryall, a tissue case, a pencil case, and wall quilts. Pattern sheets included.

Celebrated Japanese quilt artist Yoko Saito is well-known for her detailed work and unique use of taupe color palettes. She learned to quilt after seeing antique quilts in America and has been inspired over the years to create her own style and designs. A prolific author of quilt books, she also designs fabric and her patterns are often seen in Japanese quilt and crafting magazines. In addition, she appears in various media, and has had her own television series called Fashion Workshop, broadcast by NHK TV. She serves as an instructor at the NHK Culture Center, Nihon Vogue Gakuen, and is a member of the Japan Needlework Exhibit. She currently owns and runs a quilt shop and school called Quilt Party in Chiba Prefecture, just outside of Tokyo.
