My Creative Space

This has been my creative space for the past week. I ordered a couple new Japanese patchwork books to help me figure out how to use this one  (that link goes to a post from my old blog if you want to see what the book is).
I've seen some of the blocks out of it popping up on Flickr and decided to dust my copy off and try it out.
My first attempt was a fail but I have a different idea of how to do it now thanks to my new ABC book.

It is also by Kumiko Fujita and has some great projects inside. Here a few photos of some of the pages.

The other patchwork book (on the right) has some wonderful block piecing tutorials and projects. I think between the two I can master the Patchwork Pattern 318 book finally! I'll find out this weekend though after I hopefully get over my cold. :)

  1. I love getting new books or magazines that inspire me! I know how much you love Japanese craft books, so these are great resources to have on your bookshelves in your creative space. Hope you get the chance (and some healthy moments) to create something this weekend!

  2. Wow! This is fascinating. I've never heard of these books before. I've off to hunt them down!
