A (scanned)portion of JanW's Japanese fan block for our Fan dancing RR.
I like it as it is...........NAKED!
Jan has used Japanese cottons for the fan,with vanes of a mustard braid,which give it a feeling of strength.The background patches are in various neutral/cream fabrics and provide a great foil to the predominantly indigo shades.I prefer the minimalist approach to things Japanese, and have been apprehensive of doing anything to spoil Jan's plan.
However,I have been assured that Japanese style motifs----crane,Koi carp,kimono,cherry blossom,coins,fans are acceptable!
So now,I must put needle to fabric.I'll post a photo ,later!
