The magazines have many illustrations to guide you through the sewing process. If you can sew block patterns and a simple bag, you'll have no problem with the patterns inside these magazines.
In the September 2009 issue of Quilts Japan, you'll find patterns on how to turn your Kaffe Fassett fabrics into beautiful bags and book covers. In addition, there are patterns for tea cozies and place mats using your floral prints.
Have you an unfinished chenille fabric project on your shelf? How about making a bag with chenille fabric with the July 2007 issue of Quilts Japan.
These are just a few ideas from these Japanese quilting magazines.
Each magazine is USD$8/ each + shipping.
