a pojagi artist

I discovered, through a comment left on one of my pojagi posts, the work of this wonderful pojagi artist – Jung Yul Park. Her work is so beautiful I had to share. The grey one is incredible and here’s a little sunny yellow to get you going this morning.

    Wow, that’s beautiful. I love the way she’s blending her colors. I’m curious to read more about the process of making one. Is it like a fold-n-finish or log cabin?

    That looks lovely. Uhm, I hate to always be the dummy of the comments section, but what exactly is pojagi? I did a google and wikipedia search and really couldn’t come up with a good explanation. I understand that it is a korean quilting style, but I’m not sure I understand the mechanics of it.

    Those are amazing. I love the coloration of those coasters in your previous post. I’d love to do a simple (simple looking, that is) blind for the window in my foyer like that…

    Thank you for sharing pojagi. I am very inspired, so much so that I started attempting it last night. After sewing together the pieces, is the stitching done on the front or the back? Does it matter?

    Hi Hillary and people,
    Wow. I’m really happy to see people having positive reaction to Pojagi!
    I told mom about it and she’s really psyched.
    She had taught Pojagi along with other Korean traditional embroidery back in Korea but took a loooooong break since she moved to the states. But she and I are in the middle of working on a site where she will put a tutorials on pojagis. I’m helping her with the translation.. I’ll keep you guys updated!
    xoxo
