Marion Werner's Japanese Quilt Blocks sampler


Marion sent me some photos of her Japanese sampler, which combines blocks from 'Japanese Quilt Blocks to Mix and Match' and 'Japanese Taupe Quilt Blocks'. She writes -

Tomorrow I will finish the borders and then comes the fun part - quiltingthis baby on my Juki.
But it starts looking like a quilt.

Model - Elsie, Marion's bassett hound, who obviously has good taste in quilts!

The taupe, blue and russet colour scheme is a winner.  I wonder what colours will be in the border?  It is going to be a big quilt - it must be over 80in square already.  Ganbatte kudasai! ('Work hard' in Japanese)

UPDATE - Marion sent me another e mail, with a photo showing the borders -

Here the progress - as promised.
Quiltsize: 2.6 m x 2.32 m
sashing - finished - 1.5"
inner border - finished - 2.5"
outer border - finished - 6"
Sorry, that I cannot deliver a better photo - the table is not high enough!
