This is GREAT!!! Your colors make my head spin in a frenzy of joy!

I went back to your Korak stories of 2009 and all together is a chapter of a book!

I also have a more than half finished Korak somewhere on a shelf, all in brown and beige tones- you gave me spirit to look for it and finish it up. It is about a tree and birds and a saying by Else Lasker_Schueler. I really have to find it!

So in love with this idea. Elegant in its simplicity.

Thanks for this tutorial Eva- very easy to follow! It just so happens I have to start on a baby quilt very soon and this might be the perfect answer for me (plus give me some hand work for tv time in the evening!) Thanks- Ill post what happens someday to show you.

Thanks Eva! I came via Deanna and think it is so interesting to see what different fabric choices do to the look of Korak. As I told Deanna, this technique reminds me of the 'folded star' potholders I made in the early 1980's!

What an informative and inspiring post--I love the format! I, too, found you via Deanna's blog--lucky me! I've seen the finished work in a S. Korea quilt shop, but I didn't know what it was called (can't read Korean).

love the way you presented the tutorial! Never heard of this kind of technique but must certainly try it now lol
many thanks!

Eva said...

Dear Ladies, thank you all for your wonderful comments! Please don't let me miss your work, I'm so curious how you use this method in case you do. Probably you can teach me more.

I love your hand written tutorial; it is not only informative and inspirational but attractive, too.
This method is similar to a Japanese technique for making (log cabin) style roses.
I just love the work and the look.
Thank you for sharing.

Very nice tutorial. I started already with a few korak blocks. Thank you for taking your time to bring it together in such a beautiful way.

liniecat said...

Gosh I love the idea of this technique. had seen it on Deanna's blog and this is obviously where she got the notion from!
Im following you now and will have to have a crack at this method myself lol
A delightful way to present a tutorial and I will have to now do abit of research into Korak - so thank you for a piece of new learning : )

I am here again and like it even more. Only a pity that some photos won't show up. But never mind - I just wanted to inform you.
