Scrap Valley by Yoko Saito
This is a wonderful new book from Yoko Saito. Scrap Valley is a return to her traditional roots of piece quilting and scrappy quilts. The book is filled with a variety of projects that harmoniously blend her love of taupes with others of a bit more color. Mind you they're not bold colors, but there's more color in these projects than many of her others.

This book contains numerous pieced quilt projects from tiny hexagons, to octagon squares, to log cabins, to just piecing. If you love to work with very small pieces, then this is the book for you. It is simply magnificent. There are also a couple of bags patterns too. There are some templates as well for about 4-5 of the projects in the book.

Additionally, Quiltmania published this book, therefore it is written in both English and French. So if you have any French speaking quilting friends, they can easily enjoy this book too!

Yoko Saito's Floral Bouquet Quilts
Yoko Saito, an acclaimed designer, quilter, author and teacher from Japan is known around the world for her ingenious use of “taupe color”. In this book, Floral Bouquet Quilts, she once again uses fabric and design to create exquisite works of art. She offers 29 different projects from pouches and bags to cushion covers and wall quilts, including an interesting three dimensional technique for flower petals. If you love Yoko Saito’s designs, this book is sure to please you.

There are 29 appliqué projects in this book with instructions and plenty of pictures along with templates. Each project she's done using her signature taupe color fabrics. There are wall-hangings, purses, very small projects such as a scissor case. All use piecing and appliqué, though there are a few that include some embroidery work.

What we like about this particular appliqué book of hers is that all that projects are practical pieces. She specifically says in her book that she wants to actually use all that you see. There is even one quilt where her appliqué motifs are actually in 3-D.
