Imagine my delight at receiving this book unannounced from Keiko Goke!
It appears to be a retrospective of her career, since there are many familiar works included, plus lots of new ones too. And there are illustrated directions for making just about everything she has pictured.
Not to mention the intense hand embroidery over the surface...amazing!
I love how she takes a simple design and by making it larger than tradition dictates, achieves such impact. Having seen these quilts in person when we taught there, I know this is about 6 feet square.
Even though the directions are in Japanese, you get the idea...
If this doesn't get my juices flowing, I don't know what will. Yummy, just yummy.
