"BONBORI", Japanese hexagonal paper lantern


I finished the hand quilting and binding.
I am so pleased. This one is for me.





Thank you again Janet, Quiltsalot, for sharing this pattern idea with us.

Your quilt is very unusual and gorgeous, Janet!
I have been drooling over Quiltsalot's header for a while and very tempted to make a version. All I need is a focus fabric. How long do you estimate it took you to hand piece?

Amazing! I'm taking a class on Thursday dealing with those hexagons, I'm so excited. There's a little bit of a twist to it. I'll post pictures after I get started.

Hi Janet, a friend and I have both been wanting to make this quilt but I just did not have a vision for the fabrics I wanted to use. I've always admired Japanese prints but never used any. I LOVE your quilt and may start shopping for some new fabric! Thanks for the inspiration
