Award-winning Japanese quilter Noriko Endo’s quilts are often recognized for their impressionistic landscape style. Starting with a photograph as her inspiration, she creates the quilts using her unique confetti technique, layering bits and shreds of fabric on batting, topping it with tulle and then machine quilting the piece. Noriko offers step-by-step instructions for choosing your subject and then designing, quilting and finishing your quilt. The book includes Noriko’s personal story, a discussion of where she finds inspiration as well as an extensive gallery with abundant closeup shots. If you’re a fan of her quilts, you’ll enjoy the closeup into her work. And, if you want to create your own quilts based on her confetti technique, you’ll have the tools to do so.
