I love this book. It has 125 Japanese block patterns in it. I didn’t have any Japanese Taupe fabrics when I bought the book so I used 2 lines of French General by Moda.
Here’s what I came up with:
I’m thinking I’d like to hand quilt it – once I get the quilt from mom finished.
What do you think about utility (or big stitch) quilting it with perle cotton 8 thread?
And, what pattern would you do?
I’m kinda sick of the outline/cross hatch and I’m thinking to go with something a little wild…..like free form flowers/leaves/vines across it…..or, I could go with a more traditional sashiko-type pattern. I’d sorta like an overall, edge-to-edge, pantograph type pattern only looser and not predictable. Any ideas for me or suggestions on where to go for ideas to sort out this dilemma? Someone suggested a Gwen Marsten book…..
