Ninja-chan by caitcreates
I play in a long-running tabletop RPG. I started playing this game (affectionately called "You Die") back in 1995. It ran continuously up until our GM had two little girls. Now she's busy with them and running a LARP.
When my GM was pregnant with her second daughter, I went shopping for fabric for a quilt. (Yes, I have a lot of fabric in my stash. What's your point?) I stumbled across this fabric that featured feudal Japanese children. Knowing my GM (Melissa) loved all things Japanese, I knew I had my focus fabric! I had a lot of fun fussy-cutting the center squares of this pattern so that each block had a little Japanese ninja at its center.
As I understand it, the ending -chan is used in Japanese to mean "little one," so this name of this quilt is roughly translated "cute little ninja."
Melissa loved it!
See the cute little ninja?
I used those paper border guides
