Helen Hazon – When East Meets West – Kamon Star

For this quilt I have used a traditional Western-style pieced star block as the background but in bright,  Indian colours. I quilted the triangular parts of the star with straight lines then I stitched Japanese kamon designs in the open squares. All fabrics and threads are cotton.








  1. Very, very pretty! And I find myself wondering if the colour selection has an East/West flavour too…

  2. Love the way that you have used threads of different colours to mirror your fabrics.

  3. I love your stitched Japanese Kamon designs.

  4. Beautiful stitching and colours love the combination of designs

  10. Helen this is a lovely piece. The purple and pink remind me a sari I had seen recently. This piece is absolute precision with the piecing and machine quilting. Stunning.
