Welcome home! 🏡 All-new house projects to build with Yoko Saito (+ giveaway!)

Japanese master quilter Yoko Saito returns with an all-new collection of house projects to build and enjoy!

In Yoko Saito’s I Love Houses, 20 bags, totes, purses, pouches, wall quilts, and more celebrate two sides of Ms. Saito’s work—her traditional patchwork roots and her fanciful appliqué creations.


City Skyline

Create a city skyline, construct a tiny town, stitch and frame single dwellings, or appliqué a giant mushroom house owned by two little ladybugs—so many fresh ideas to savor.


Zippered Sewing Case

In the introduction to the book, Ms. Saito explains her love of the time-honored house motif:

“If I were asked what motif I would never tire of making in my life, I would have to say house blocks and appliqués. I think that many who do patchwork and quilting love houses as well. Designing these houses out of fabric is almost like building a real house.

In my first book on this subject, Houses, Houses, Houses, which was published more than 10 years ago, most of the houses were modeled after houses that I consider American in style. Perhaps this is because I was first introduced to quilts in America, and that is where I had spent the most time traveling. However, in the last decade I have had the opportunity to go to mainland Europe and the Scandinavian countries quite often. I began to notice the different styles of the houses in this different climate and culture and how they were designed and built.


Everyday Handbag

As I visited various cities, towns, and villages, I rarely saw two houses with the same design. In fact, the shapes, colors, number of doors and windows, and the roof lines were often completely different. Perhaps this is a reflection of a culture that honors the tradition of handicrafts.”


Boston Bag

Ms. Saito clearly feels right at home with houses—they reflect the warmth of the world around us. Tell us: What kind of houses would you build in fabric?

  • Houses in the city: that’s where all the fun is!
  • Houses in the country: I prefer a relaxed pace.
  • A version of my neighborhood, using Ms. Saito’s designs as my muse.

    My second work would be more whimsical with odd little houses, many colors, at odd angles, sort of Pippi Longstocking style, with odd little items hanging out the windows.

    —S Herman on November 15, 2019
  • I love houses too!!! The scrappier the better! The more rustic…the better! The more off set/ dilapidated…the better! I love how you put the houses together into small villages, but they don’t feel overpowering. They all flow together. Such a wonderful gift you have!

    Yoko’s ‘I Love Houses’ book would be a great source of inspirational ideas!

    —Sandy on November 15, 2019

    —Jane on November 15, 2019
  • The cover bag of the book has a 3 way hook for me. The bag is unusual greys. The houses are a true old neighborhood and I love bags. The book will be a hit I think. What a nice way to start a rainy day

    —Diane H on November 15, 2019

    —Brenda D on November 15, 2019
  • A house is not a home until is loved by Yoko Saito

    —Phyllis on November 15, 2019

    —Pauline McEwen on November 15, 2019
  • I’ve admired Yoko Saito’s work through pictures in her books but haven’t bought one as I thought this is beyond my skill level. But winning a book would have me trying something new. In a quilt group that has now disbanded there was a lady who used Japanese fabrics to make a beautiful quilt in dark fabrics. That was my first introduction to Japanese fabrics.

    —Carol Putnam on November 15, 2019

    Kim Brownell on November 15, 2019
  • My childhood home in Chicago surrounded by our next door neighbors’ homes with our yfront yard gardens and the maple and mulberry trees that succumbed to disease almost 40 years ago but still thrive in my memory.

    —Kathy English on November 15, 2019
  • Absolutely positively a country home however a cute row of pastel homes would be awesome. But I also want my very own beach cottage. So I guess I’d be very busy making houses.

    —April Lopez on November 15, 2019

    —Judith Carlon on November 15, 2019
  • I’ve lived in cities, in small towns, and in the country. Using Ms. Saito’s motifs would allow me to explore the neighborhoods of my life.

    —Barbara Colvin on November 15, 2019

    —Dorothy M on November 15, 2019

    —Alice Donaldson on November 15, 2019

    —Margaret Dalmer on November 15, 2019
  • I’ve been thinking about a quilt of all the houses that were important to me, whether I’d lived in them, or visited grandparents, aunts & uncles. I would add in the various pets over the years and something special to represent each of my children. I have been a Yoko Saito fan since 2004 when I first saw a bag of hers with houses surrounding it in a band of brown woven and quilted fields. I would love to own this book.

    —Sherry Jurykovsky on November 15, 2019
  • I love the idea of all three of the options for houses. Yoko’s work is truly amazing. I was fortunate to be able to see her in Houston a few years ago. She is truly a delightful and talented individual. Thanks for this opportunity.

  • And where do I get the fabrics? There aren’t any shop that sell centennary 20, 21 and 22. Everyone publishes her bags and patterns but you can’t get her fabrics anywhere. That is a big cheat!
    Birgitt from Germany

    quiltfru on November 15, 2019

Oh, how delightful it would be to win a book of more houses and their paper piecing in a variety forms! I am an active volunteer and would welcome this new book to make items for a variety of causes. Thank you for considering my comment.

    —Cecile Emond on November 15, 2019
  • Oh my! Another beautiful Saito house book to drool over! I would love to try all – city and country alike!

    —Colleen on November 15, 2019
  • Why do little houses make our hearts beat faster? I think because it is one more thing we can build with our fabrics, colors and textures. So, I say, hand me that hammer, oops, I mean fabric bundle. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

    Geri Ankiel on November 15, 2019
  • Such lovely work! I am a country house person!

    —Rob on November 15, 2019
  • Wow, I’m just so amazed how many amazing sewing books Yoko Saito publishes! She must be a busy lady! I’d make houses/homes I make up in my imagination, but probably based on my memories of the neighborhood I grew up in with the old plantation-style houses. Just looking at her work in general sparks my imagination like crazy, no other designer does that for me! Thanks for the announcement. I’ll have to put this book on my holiday wish list. 🙂

    —Carol Smith on November 15, 2019
  • I’d like an old country look. Sometimes the ‘look’ seems calmer and simpler.

    —Jean L Balliro on November 15, 2019
  • Yoko’s "I Love Houses" is my sentiment, too. What’s not to like about wonderful houses. Yoko is an amazingly creative person! I really love houses but would probably chose a house in the country…but then again…maybe I’d just create houses in the city…

    —LJ on November 15, 2019

    —Deborah Urich on November 15, 2019

  • I am always in awe of her work. Such detail in each house block.

    —Theresa Kennedy on November 15, 2019
  • I must admit that I am not really into houses. I can never get the roof pieces well-centered and straight. But I do love Yoko Saito’s work! I would make my own house, looking at her work, and maybe a few others, but they would be surrounded by trees and where I wish my house was located.

    —Carole Holmberg on November 15, 2019
  • I prefer houses NOT in the city, but those at the beach, farms, and in my neighborhood. 🙂

    —Pat Sell on November 15, 2019
  • I love the county, but I really want to do something depicting my neighborhood. It is in a circle. Elysian Circle; the name Elysian has a meaning of the afterlife in Greek Mythology. I want to bring it all together in my quilt. Uh maybe one day. I can dream can’t I?

    —Cathy Wilson on November 15, 2019
