Yoko Saito quilt from Floral Bouquet p.6
66.4  x 61.4 cm

I finished the top and I am ready to start hand quilting and adding the 60 or so cobblestones around the quilt border.The whole book is in Japanese so I only have pictures and measurement to go by, which is ok except for the cobblestones. From what I can see they are added after the cable quilting is done on the border as some of them cover the quilting. Anyway that is what I have decided to do :)

  4. Oh wow Helen, this is taking beautiful shape... & you are doing so well to 'interpret' the book... so lovely!! x

    1. PS: I just noticed the "Have you ever felt..." question & image up the top left.... what a beauty, so funny & probably true for all the clever quilt makers... x

  5. Helen you deserve a million brownie points for being brave enough to tackle a pattern in Japanese let alone make a brilliant job of it. Can't wait to see your cobblestone border...

  6. This is amazing-love the stone type colours you have chosen for piece.
