Posts Tagged ‘Asian Crane quilt’

I am working on an AMAZING Asian Sampler quilt! I am doing a “turned border” technique – so I can quilt the side borders using Sashiko templates. To do this technique,  I have to take the quilt off of the machine and “turn” it. Before I put the quilt back on the machine, I took some photos of the quilt, and here they are.

Here is a photo of the quilt before quilting.  Click on any photo for a larger view.

Asian Cranes

These blocks are shown in no particular order. Here is the first block

B-SH-1

I am using mostly gold, high sheen polyester (hsp)  thread for the quilting. It looks luscious!

B-SH-2

The red fabric is the outer border and the black is the inner border. I am using the Sashiko Circles template to make the Ying Yang design in the border with the gold hsp thread. There are some chalk marks on the fabric so I can keep the pattern straight. They will be removed when the quilt is finished.

B-SH-3

Above is another block –

B-SH-3A

This is the back of the quilt showing the block quilting and the Ying Yang borders. The backing fabric is a wonderful solid dark black sateen fabric. In these photos the black fabric looks “washed out” and gray.

B-SH-4

 

Who knew a Log Cabin was Asian? I hope you can see the overlapping circles I quilted on the block. If not –

B-SH-4A

Here is a view from the back! The Ying Yang’s in the sashing measure 2 inches in diameter!

B-SH-6

This is the lower part of the center panel. I am “quilting the fabric”and adding some stitching “detail” on the printing of the fabric.

SH-7

Here is a closer view of the fabric and the quilting. Expand the photo and you can see the stitching lines.

I still have quilting to do on this project, but I am so excited on how it is turning out that I wanted to show everyone!
