>a lot of ‘tweaking’ going on – only the most careful inspection would reveal differences between this and the last several versions … but I know !

I haven’t actually given you any specs, but you could probably tell that this will be a reasonably big quilt.
The design brief – such as it was – from my DD was ” One of your Japanese one-of-a-kind quilts, purple, teal, navy, with cranes, sashiko, Mount Fuji and a Tori gate”

Unfortunately Mount Fuji declined to be included,
but I think we can safely say that the rest is to code.

Each of the blocks is 6″ finished, and there will be a border – understated navy – of 6-8″ around what you see here, so … assuming my maths skills haven’t totally deserted me … that’s a finished size of 96″ -100″ square [ 2.4 -2.5m ] before quilting, to finish an inch or so smaller.

Not that this is remotely close to being finished.

I’ve only done [ most of ] the blocks.

Still got to join all those squares together.

and while we’re on the subject, I can’t keep calling this The Wedding Quilt. It needs a name, and I’ve already used the ones which spring to [my] mind, so I’m open to suggestions.
