My quilting progress has been slow in February, but I have completed one project. Mount Fuji is a pattern from the Postcards from Japan series by Helene Knott. It is intended as an applique wall-hanging, however I decided to use a panel instead.
Mount Fuji Pattern
Mount Fuji – my version
I can’t decide if I am happy with this wall-hanging or not. I wonder if the light & dark gray was the right choice, maybe I should have looked for green or brown background fabrics. I also didn’t anticipate how the machine quilting would show up on the moon. Note to self- machine quilt the outlines in the Mount Fuji panel next time.
I have two more Fuji prints, so I may take one and try this pattern again. Hmmm I need to think about that some more.
The hand stitching on Rose Garden is coming along slowly. Three of the five EPP stars have been stitched to the background – hopefully I will have them all completed this weekend. My plan is to add some pentagons to the setting triangles to add some interest. Plan A was a partial circle, however it is too tight. Plan B is setting them in a straight-ish line of one up one down. I like this a lot better.
I may also add one pentagon to the center of the corner triangles – we will see when I get that far. Rose Garden needs to be finished since I have already received the next EPP project.
The EPP Quilty Box for January arrived and it was full of lemons.
No, that is not a real lemon in the upper right side. It is a lemon stress ball. The project is for bowls which are not my thing, so I will be doing something completely different with them. But that is decisions for another day.
Have a good evening,
