My nephew is going to live in Japan for 2 years. My husband designed this wallhanging and I quilted/embroidered it for him. There are 5 Kanji symbols embroidered on blocks of dupion silk – Peace, Love, Laugh, Happiness, and Strength. All things we want to send with him! The borders have mitered corners, the sections were mostly insets. The floral border has a lotus flower pattern which I outline quilted with gold thread. The dark blue blocks are speckled with gold. It’s getting shipped out this weekend.
