Japanese Blocks

I have done these Japanese flavoured blocks to go into the centre of my Sashiko medallion quilt I am working on.

We are meant to be putting it together next Tuesday week and I am very much behind with my ‘homework’.
It will all come together eventually, I am sure.  Just when, I am not so sure.
I am very happy with how these blocks came out.  They are from this gorgeous book by Susan Briscoe which I have shown before.  If you have this book, note, there is a printing error on Page 51 in the cutting. Luckily I had plenty of the fabric left to cut another piece.

There are also some very nice applique patterns in this book.  May have a crack at some of those too.Open-mouthed smile

These are beautiful blocks Di. I can just see them fitting in with the rest of what you have prepared. The finished quilt is going to be magnificent. The bedroom could need a whole new makeover when this is fished. :)

These lovely blocks remind me of my Civil War Diary quilt blocks I just found in my stash. I'm looking forward to your quilt, maybe it helps me decide what to do with my blocks!

The blocks and fabrics are really lovely Dianne. I love anything Japanese of course. Hope you get your 'homework' done and don't have to stand in the naughty corner!!! Love your new header collage, it's just delightful.
