Japanese inspired sun star quilt ready for embroidery

If you have followed my blog, you will surely recognize this quilt, at least as a quilt top. It has been stippled and bound at last.

I stippled all the exterior parts but have reserved the inner circles for Japanese characters, as they are to have personal meaning for the recipient. I thought to either stipple or pebble a relief of the characters, so they will be visible but not dominating the quilt. A bit ambitious for me, but I will give it a go.

I like how the stippling somewhat masks the seams and lets it all appear to merge into one background fabric piece.

Isn't this backing fabric adorable? Doesn't the stippling seem to intertwine in the fabric's design? It is the same backing used for the sun spiral quilt posted yesterday. In any case, this will not be the last you see of this quilt, so stay tuned.

Have a wonderful day!



  1. Your quilt is very nice. And yes, I love the backing material.
