This is Jan’s quilt. She used two gorgeous panels of a Japanese geisha print and set them on a chequerboard style background. The wide borders were quilted with a sashiko design to compliment the centre and add texture. I like this border because it is interesting but does not overwhelm the centre of the quilt, which is the main feature. We used a charcoal coloured batting in this quilt to intensify the darker colours of the fabric.
The back of the quilt is interesting too.
