In Confetti Naturescapes Noriko Endo writes about the inspiration she finds everywhere in nature and the techniques she employs to create her masterpieces.
Noriko's quilts are true objets d'art. Her naturescape quilts have the look of impressionist paintings. The stunning photos throughout the book showcase the nature imagery that her quilts are known for. Quilt 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 simple 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.
