This is a nice little book. There are 26 patchwork projects included. The patterns were nice and the objects functional. They were the sort of things that are commonly shown inthis sort of book. The items themselves were visually interesting combining patchwork and applique. They had a sort of austere shabby chic look. The colors are muted and the edges ragged. I thought I would be most likely to make the house slippers. The book included a resource list at the back which was nice.

I am going to buy this little book. It is so well done...the pictures are beautiful, the notes about her grandmother are so touching. I remembered Suzuko Koseki is Japanese and all of the things they made are Japanese. The room shoes will be my first project. I can't wait to see her other bookPlayful Patchwork: Happy, Colorful, and Irresistible Ideas and Instruction for Modern Piecework, Applique, and Quilting and Patchwork Style: 35 Simple Projects for a Cozy and Colorful Life.
Suzuko Koseki's Natural Patchwork: 26 Stylish Projects Inspired by Flowers, Fabric, and Home (Make Good: Crafts + Life) is a beautifully photographed book with charming quilted country items for household use. The projects are simple and the directions give even beginning quilters adequate instruction. Further discussion of various quilting techniques may help the novice get started quilting. While the projects are nothing new, they may prove to be an inspiration to someone wanting to begin quil ...more
A nice wee book. I like the look of the room shoes and I love how the author has done the courthouse steps quilt, it looks traditional yet modern.
It's not a good sign when I can go through a craft or quilt book in 5 minutes. I was struck by very few of the projects, and those I did glance at, I could find in other books with what I consider to be better instructions. I said of her last book that I didn't like the patterns/instructions being separate from the photos of the projects, and that holds true of this book as well. I think I simply do not have the same style as this author.
I have checked this book out of the library several times and enjoy the projects and the styling. I use it mainly for inspiration. I have made the water jar holder and am currently making a bag.

Beautiful book, lovely pictures, not quite my style though, lots of functional items for the house, very pretty but frustrating having patterns separate from illustrations

Very similar to her book "Patchwork Style."
