Taupe Quilt Now Finished

My Taupe quilt is now almost finished - just a bit more hand quilting to go.

It now has a name - "Kyoto Flower Pots".
It is named for my favourite city in Japan and because it is made in the Japanese 
woven and printed 'taupes' that Japanese fabric companies design so well. 
And of course every block is a pot / vase of flowers.

The original was designed by Lori Smith but was a small quilt.
I have enlarged and multiplied it up to make a bed size quilt.
It will be available as a Block of the Month starting at the end of next week.

Here are photos of two blocks that I managed to miss posting earlier.

Second version - managed to make my Freezer Paper pieces in reverse 
but it turned out to be a good idea rather than a mistake!
It makes my two blocks in mirror image.

Back to the hand quilting now.
Back soon with a new project or two!!!!!
Probably one hand work and one machined.


  1. Good name for your quilt. Lookin' good.

    1. Thanks Karen. I have loved making this one
      as it has a balance of appliqué and machine
      piecing. Now in the middle of hand quilting it.
