The Fabric Selection Phase
I've taken the first step in the creation of a quilt inspired by Japanese fabrics, the fabric selection phase. A long time ago, before the year 2000, I made a Fan Quilt. At that time, I'd sent for a Japanese Fan Quilt kit from a mail order company. It came with numerous little rectangles of Japanese fabrics, and yardages of black fabric and printed fabric for sashing and borders.

However, I may not need to use them because I plan to use a unique technique I saw somewhere on someone else's blog to form the hexagons. I will track down that blog, so that you too can try this technique!
So watch this space for the next phase of this project - Part 2, the Design Phase.
