Japanese Quilt Block # 1... Fan

Well, I've sketched out a rough draft of the quilt I plan to make, and made a start on it..
Here is the first of the blocks.
I just had to do a fan wouldn't be a Japanese quilt without a fan block, would it!
I think I shall do two of these fan blocks, and space them out in the quilt layout.
A couple of Noshi blocks would look nice too, and perhaps a butterfly or two.
The quilt is to go into a quilt show and it has to be specific size to meet their rules and specifications.
The minimum size is to be over 126cm in any direction, so I will have to be very careful and make sure it measures up..


  1. That blocks looks great..the black background really makes it pop!

  2. WOW, I really liked the fabrics you posted but to see them arranged is wonderful. Very, very pretty!

  3. I new it, every thing you will make of this fabric will be nice! I keep looking...

  4. Beautiful!
    That will be a truly lovely quilt.

  5. 'Fan'tastic block - love the choices of fabrics!

  6. Wow, I love the way the fabrics went together! It's one thing to see them all laid out, and quite another to see them in a block or quilt. This is going to be a beautiful project.

    Love the pic of your and Maureen's DHs. How I wish I could jump on down for Easter and join you all! =) Not a chance, though, so you are safe!

  7. It's nifty Julia! Can't wait to see more.


  8. This is going to be a great quilt!

  9. When is comes to "sane" quilting fans are my favorite. I look forward to watching your progress with this quilt.
