I actually made this quilt a good while ago but I can finally share properly since it has gone display in Limerick( Thanks Paula!).
The idea of this quilt is each four seasons framed in fan shape.
Spring, cherry blossom
Summer, bamboo forest
Winter, snow capped mountain and pine tree
But there are more seasons in between those four.Japanese count twenty four seasons traditionally. Quilting background was something to symbolise those between seasons.
Early summer we have wisteria and then rain season comes.
Rain season brings hydrangea. Summer time is also for insects too.
From Autumn river to rough winter wave.
I spilled quilting lines from fan frame to connect everything. Wind from spring blowing flowers. River from autumn has some fishes swimming.
I hope you can see all the quilting here.
