This one is unique in that it is ALL handsewn, in the true Japanese style of quilting (I swear, if I followed true Japanese quilting, I'd never pick up a project, the thought of making a queen-size quilt ALL BY HAND!! Not even a thought...
The bits in this one come from a Moda line, and were leftover from a tote-bag I made for my little sister.
Quilting is not my only craze! I cross-stitch whenever I have to be away from the machine...on the train to work, watching TV, sitting in a restaurant and having coffee...I started this project in June, 2010, finished in October. Fabric is Aida 18ct, which is harder to work on, but makes details so much more fine.
Not sure where the bits from this project came from, I think several leftovers thrown into the mix. The diamonds are about 1"x1" total, so the project is small.
These will eventually be made into placemats, the design came from a wonderful little Japanese hexagon pattern book, which I bought on Amazon.co.jp for less than $5, and found selling on Ebay for over $15! Hmmm.... Each placemat has a color theme, I made a blue one which went as a gift to my step-daughter. I plan on a purple, orange, another blue, and maybe a yellow one.
