Finished Size - 16" x 16"
From the lowest depths of dark water and mud, the lotus (hasu in Japanese) begins as a tiny flower to slowly climb upward, following the light, eventually to emerge above water to face the sun. The struggle and determination of the lotus is a traditional symbol in Japanese culture of our own abilities to rise above adversities that life can present. This original and serene pattern also shows the moon to reflect that our creativity, like the lotus, has the seed to blossom into its own unique beauty. The pattern and instructions offer options for the beginner/intermediate quilter, and suggestions to challenge the more advanced quilter as well. Designed for a raw edge appliqué, it can also be adapted to needle turn. Moon Lotus quilt pattern by Mochi Mochi Fiber Arts, finished size is about 16" x 16".
