Japanese style (^_^)
Last week I started a new project with Japanese fabrics.
It is my first time working with this kind of material and their typical colours and I love it! Every fabric has a lovely woven structure and both sides are interesting.
The blocks are all done by hand and my box with Aurifil threads comes in handy. The threads blend in so nicely! All blocks, 24 in total, have an applique of some kind of a house, like a tent, a lighthouse, a church, a windmill, a quilt shop, etc.
Later on I will add some embroidery with Cosmo threads.
The course is given by Anke Magre at the Quilterspalet. Thursday is the next lesson and I have some more homework to do...
I will keep you posted about the blocks to come. Hilde
