A mixture of Japanese Indigo and Yarn-dyed fabrics that includes Japanese figures and family crests or mon, this quilt is as calming as it is beautiful. Simple, yet complex, a true example of what we Westerners love about Japanese art.
Hexie flowers appliqued onto neutral, yarn-dyed fabrics are a great way to showcase your beautiful Japanese indigo prints! Although it can easily be made larger or smaller, this quilt (finished size 40” x 45”) features 42 blocks.
In this 1-day workshop, we will make 4 blocks, plus have time to plan and discuss finishing your quilt. Made using English paper piecing techniques and simple block piecing, we will begin by cutting, basting, and stitching 4 hexie flowers. I will share my techniques for fussy cutting hexies, easy basting, and stitching them into flowers.
With many options for the centers of the hexie flowers - identical (cut from the same solid or print fabric), or (as in this case) fussy cut from the same fabric, which featured 42 different family crests, or embroider small (1.125 inch in diameter, or less) Sashiko designs on solid indigo-dyed fabric, this quilt will can be as personally yours as you choose to make it.
