Fuji Afternoon Quilt

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.)
