Japanese Sampler – Good luck symbol (Post 7)

For my next block I used one of Susan Briscoe’s pieced block ideas, but I increased the size a little to fit what I needed. It’s a Good Luck symbol.

I think it’s pretty and chose a simple, quiet pair of fabrics to let the shape of the symbol stand out.

I did slightly misjudge the size of this one. It’s like the hexagon block all over again! Thankfully I did manage to get it to sit inside the block eventually, but you’ll notice the outer border of the symbol is a bit narrower than the inner spacings. It’s not perfect, but it’s close enough so this block will make it on to the front of the quilt. I was getting worried the back would get finished before the front at this rate.
