Next Treasure Wheel Block

I have finally got back into my applique blocks from Susan Briscoe's "125 Japanese Quilt Blocks" book. I now have six applique blocks and one sashiko block made.

 I think I am going to have to re-plan what layout they are going to go into.
I thought originally that I would make three panels mixing applique, pieced and sashiko blocks. But I am not that ken on the sashiko block that I stitched so I am now thinking just one panel and just applique and pieced blocks.

These are all the blocks lined up so you can see them in one post. They are actually all on the same grey background fabric - it is amazing how different it can look in some photos.

    1. Thanks Susan. I made a quilt. You can see the finished quilt top on my 14 October 2011 post. I just loved working with your blocks. The fabric that I used was all kimono silk scraps that I collected in the Flea Markets in Japan. The background was a fine wool kimono roll that I also picked up in the Flea Market

  2. As soon as I hit send, I realised I HAD seen the blog post about the finished piece - just not this post with the block details.
