Hitomi Fujita of Frenchs Forest, NSW designed this quilt using Quilt Gate’s Mary Rose Collection – Angels range of fabrics. It is a very traditional block that lends itself to motif fabrics for the block centres. Hitomi made another sample in traditional Japanese fabrics to illustrate how you can get a totally different look with a different fabric.
