“I’m Turning Japanese” – Original Japanese Kimono Quilt Design

Kimono quilt design

Last Updated on 10/23/20 by quiltripping

Original Quilt Design – This design takes it’s inspiration from the many beautiful Kimonos I have seen on my trips to Japan.

I used a Japanese themed panel for the focus design of the body of the Kimono. To complement the panel, I used a half square triangle design that looks like the shape of a crane; using complimentary Japanese style fabrics.

Longarm quilted by Quilts Everlasting.

Photographed in Tenjuan gardens which are part of the Nanzen-ji temple complex in eastern Kyoto.
