Wallhanging headed for Japan
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.
A labor of love I'd say. Do hope you dated and signed the all. He will surely find them a comfort should he get a longing.
Very nicely done! And you've got a great design partner in your DH!
Very Elegant! Striking design as well. Bravo, well done! A lot of love from two special people went into the making of this marvelous wall hanging. Cathy
It's beautiful! Love the colours. What a wonderful gift!
What a lovely heartfelt heirloom, sending the gift of your creative talents and love will surely ease being so far from home and loved ones. Mary
What a beautiful, thoughtful gift. You and your husband did a marvelous job. I'm sure your nephew will be overwhelmed.
Truly a beautiful quilt and the love glows through the Gathering site it is posted on. Great gift.
