Recently, I’ve received several requests from people I work with for a pattern to use with the new “Fuji Afternoon” fabric collection being carried by Hancock Fabrics. In each case I have referred the person to the Springs Creative website, and most specifically to their projects link. There are some great patterns in there – I urge you to check them out if you’re a quilter looking for inspiration.
For those who haven’t yet seen the Fuji Afternoon fabrics, here is a small preview. On the left are two of the coordinate fabrics (in addition to these two there are a couple different floral prints that are coordinates – same pattern in different colors). And on the right is a grouping of three different fabrics.
Here is a closer look at the brilliant blue fabric with the portraits on it.
This blue is very striking, and is used in several pieces in the collection. The blue would make a nice focal color for a quilt – even if you were not making anything with an Asian style!
Unfortunately, I do not have a pattern for a quilt with these fabrics, but I can direct you to the free pattern that was created by the Springs fabric company to promote this striking collection. Fuji Afternoon Free Quilt Pattern (link updated 4/30/09).
I hope you all enjoy the pattern! If you have made something different with any of these fabrics, send me a link to a picture – I just may have to revisit this collection. (If I decide to use your picture, I will upload to my own file program – so as not to use up bandwidth from your site.)

where can I get the fuji afternoon fabrics? I have the wall panel and would like to have some of the other fabrics to go with it. Please help me. Thank you very much for your time. Helen
Helen – I did a quick website search on the Fuji Afternoon fabrics, and it appears that there are several online sources of this group of fabric. I have not used any of these stores myself, so I cannot recommend any specific one, but if you type “Fuji Afternoon fabric” into your favorite search program – you’ll see what I mean. There were even some people that are currently selling at least one of these fabrics on ebay.
I would like to see the quilt Mary Ourecky made using Fuji Afternoon material. I have the same material and have not decided how I want to put it together. When looking at this site the picture does not come in.
Enola – good afternoon, I am Heather, Sheila’s assistant.
I’ve looked into this question, and it appears that something happened to the picture for that quilt – I cannot locate it in our picture storage.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and I will try to get a new copy of the picture to post as soon as possible.
I wish the link to the free pattern worked. 😕
