Quilt Top Notes/Techniques

Vintage Japanese yukata fabric kit from KimoYES. The original pattern was for a blue border around the blocks and white sashing/outer borders. I swapped them.

I cut the borders for the blocks a bit wider so I could trim them down to the perfect size.

Quilting Notes/Techniques

Quilted by Gone Aussie Quilting with a large Baptist Fan pattern.

    I love how you swapped the blue and white around. I’m about to start this quilt and I think I’ll do the same! What color thread did you use to sew the blocks and did you pre wash the prints?

      I used white thread when putting the borders around the blocks, then navy for the rest of the quilt.
      I did pre-wash. I did the Japanese fabrics by hand in my laundry sink, and the regular fabrics on the washer and dried both on the line.
      Have fun with this quilt. It’s such a beautiful result with only a little effort.
