I just finished up my latest Stepping Stones quilt for 2017-2018 - for a graduate of an orphanage in Tokyo. This is an ongoing Mormon Helping Hands project. We always use this free pattern from Bonnie Hunter.
This year I made a quilt for a boy named Yuki, who wants "quiet, whitish colors" 白っぽい落ち着いた色 which I interpreted as "low volume". I used scraps, and a good quilter friend gave me a pile of great charms from her more "modern" stash.
This is actually the first one I've made that looks WAY better in person than in the photos...
Scrappy frugal backing using this and that from my stash:
Hard to capture the colors -
The white-whites really looks blue in this light - mmmmmm..... not really the effect I was going for...
My trusty quilt holder upper... and our new-to-us LONG driveway...
In a couple of years we plan to repaint the house a different color......
Anyway, there it is, the sixth and latest Stepping Stones quilt for Tokyo, ready for David to deliver the next time he is there. My favorite color scheme so far, for sure!
