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 -
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!
