New Moon Quilt: Japanese Lanterns

Japanese Lanterns by Wanda

Just a few little fused lanterns,with machine stitching to represent the "line of glowing Japanese lanterns hung from the porch eaves, reflecting a soft radiance on the huge cedars that surrounded the house" as Bella arrives for her birthday party. I thought of piecing my own lanterns (actually made an attempt, getting as far as cutting) but I just couldn't help using these as they were just so cute and just the right size! And really that is how I imagined them anyway.
