Bojagi Class

 I haven't finished my last bojagi but it was time to learn a new one.  This is called yeojujoo bojagi.  It looks really complicated and difficult but I was happy to find that so far it's just ton of steps.  Lots of marking and pressing.  These are some samples KJ brought.

                                                               This is one she is working on.
    Here is my first one.  I just have 48 more to go by next Tuesday.  I also need to cut the colored squares that will go in the center of each square.  I have no idea how that happens but that is the next step.

KJ, my teacher, told me that her name means "silk beads" and that is why she thinks she chose a career working in silk as you do with bojagi and chasu.  Her mother, who is no longer alive, was the first to teach her and she continues with a bojagi and chasu teacher.

  1. Becky, that's the Cathedral Windows quilt :) Look it up on Google and you'll see some amazing work. I've been wanting to make one for the longest time and hope to start it once my shedio is complete. Have fun with it!
