A pdf download of one of my most popular quilt patterns, so you can start work on making your version straight away - no waiting for a paper pattern in the post!

With 99 appliqué circles, hand quilted in big stitch in a combination of traditional Japanese shippō tsunagi (linked seven treasures) and fundō (balance weights) designs, “99 Treasures” had to be the name for this quilt! In Japan, red is the girls’ colour and white the boys’. The two are combined in New Year decorations, sacred shrine ropes and wedding draperies, among other things. The circle fabrics are all Japanese patchwork cottons, featuring birds, animals, fish, flowers, leaves, dolls and abstract patterns. It would make a fun first bed quilt or a colourful wallhanging. Finished size 52 x 44in. Skill level – beginners to intermediate.
