|Pink and purple Quilt - 9 nine patch quilt|
|Turtle beach - 25 nine patch quilt.|
When thinking about making a One hundred good wishes quilt I thought that I would look at the book of traditional Taiwanese aboriginal textiles that I got during my time in Taiwan last December. Many of the traditional weavings and embroideries have a diamond pattern - some quite similar to the pattern of the above 2 quilts. If I work on a 16 nine patch quilt that would give me 80 special pieces in the 9 patch blocks, 9 in the feature blocks. and the other 11 could be incorporated into the boarders.
Using the Turtle beach quilt as the example - the light green will be replaced with a soft yellow; the white would remain white.
Pictures of Taiwanese textiles (Sorry about he camera flash flare).
Th reference for the book is Culture of clothing amount Taiwan Aboriginies Volume 2
. This work is in classical mandarin - which my daughter in law can read - I mainly look at the pictures.
