In Confetti Naturescapes Noriko writes about the inspiration she finds everywhere in nature and the techniques she employs to create her masterpieces.
Noriko's quilts are true objects of art. The stunning photos throughout the book showcase the nature imagery that her quilts are known for. Noriko's naturescapes have the look of impressionist paintings. Photos in the gallery are accompanied by notations explaining how Noriko conceived of the idea for the quilt and the techniques she used to create it.
Shapes and images in Noriko's naturescapes are created using her confetti technique, which involves layering colorful bits of fabric on batting, adding a covering of tulle and then machine quilting the entire piece. Noriko takes readers step-by-step through her process of choosing a subject, selecting colors, then designing, quilting and finishing the work.
Confetti Naturescapes will dazzle the casual reader and inspire quilters to capture all the beauty of the outdoors within the layers of a quilt.
About the Designer
Noriko Endo is an internationally acclaimed and award-winning Japanese quilter. She uses her unique perspective of nature to create stunning impressionistic designs of trees, leaves, flowers, lakes and forrest creatures.
The book and samples are lovely but only a few pages at the end are devoted to her techniques and then only in general terms. I would love to see some instructions on the Accuquilt site showing use of these two new dies and how she keeps everything in place to get it to the machine to sew in place.
