Shinkansen quilt project

Recommended Posts

This isn't really my hobby. It's my wife's. A post by Kiha about a DD51 tote bag, got me talking to her about train themed needlework projects. Well, anyway she agreed to make me/us a Shinkansen quilt. She's just started a different project that will take about a month, so we've got a while to decide on an image. It needs to be fairly simple and to fit well on a rectangle.

 

I'm thinking of a 0 series Shinkansen, even though I don't even own one yet. Or maybe a N700 as we've been on it (don't own one either yet). Or maybe a railway station Shinkansen sign. These are the two we found so far. Suggestions are welcome 🙂

There were some really nice Japanese travel posters done.

I think it would be cool to have Shinkansen written in Kanji on it too.

Eh.....no....well...in that picture the sun is red.......eh....and the train is in silhouette....so... eh...that's very original.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 In any case it's still a beautiful image so I'd consider using it. I have a poster of this motif downstairs anyway, so I can't talk.

Ha gotcha! It was a discussion if we should do the logo cliche/known or more esoteric. After creating the logo cocktail and many were consumed we went with cliche...

Cliche or not, Jeff, it’s a nice image. Looks good on a T-shirt, too! 🙂

 

All the best,

 

Mark.

I'm considering some variation of this. Not locked into anything yet.

In case she prefers something with a more basic or graphic outline, these would make good square quilt blocks (from Wikimedia Commons):
