Here is the basic layout for my son's Japanese themed quilt:



I'm not sure if this will be my final arrangement, but it gives you an idea.  The blue fabric in the background is what I will use to sash the squares, but I'll be trying sashiko stitching to quilt this puppy.  I like how there are all kinds of different styles & aesthetics for the squares - whimsical, traditional, pieced, and stenciled.  Smiley

And then here is a layout for my friend's daughter's quilt:



I was originally going to sash with a red plaid, but I couldn't find one I liked so I got red & black houndstooth instead.  Here is a close up: 



I haven't decided how to arrange the dogs, but after the apprehension everyone had with the scottie blocks, everyone did end up sending me dogs with bows instead of the easier backup square I sent along.   Grin  I'll probably give it to her for her 3rd birthday in May - I don't think I'm going to make Christmas.

wow--fabulous fabrics...I love the rocks!

I think quilts made with blocks from a variety of people really do add interest and charm to the quilts!

The Japanese inspired quilt is wonderful and full of great images and styles!

Also, the Scottie dogs are just too cute!!  I love the background you chose...I think it is much more subtle than a plaid would be yet it still pops the blocks!  Good call!

In case anyone is still following this thread:
Unfortunately, the quilt blocks I sent to Fontiua got lost in the mail.  According to the tracking number they never even made it out of the town that I sent them from Undecided
Anyway, here are the new quilt blocks I have made to replace those that were lost. Fontiua, I hope these find there way to you.   I am planning on sending them out tomorrow.

That's crappy. And weird? To not even make it out of town... but you are a very nice person for remaking and resending. Smiley

It is very weird and EllaRain did her best to battle it out with them but it's the post office.   Roll Eyes

Sorry you had to remake the blocks. Shipping stinks! My DD#1 was suppose to receive an inchie house from Germany a few weeks ago and something similar happened to her. The German PO swears the package arrived here and was signed for upon receipt. We were home all day on the supposed delivery date; no package arrived. Now we can't even find out where the house really did get delivered or who might have signed for it. US and German postal services are blaming each other and won't tell us or the sender anything except that the package was delivered and signed for. Think the pony express must have been more dependable.
