Japan Shopping

These are the lovely fabrics I bought when I went to Japan. I have to decide what I am going to make with them.

Quilt Patterns in Japan

These are patterns I found where we are staying at Takayama.
One was taken in the lift and the hall carpet and another one is from a large mat in the main lounge.
It seems inspiration for quilts can be found everywhere.

Japan Holiday

I am in Japan on holidays with my sister Leanne who is a Japanese language teacher. We are wearing ourselves out sightseeing.
I couldn't believe it when we found an actual patchwork shop today. This is Leanne's sixth visit to Japan and she has never seen one before.
The photo with the Cherry Blossoms over the Canal with a swan gracefully moving along was a beautiful sight.
The other photo is of me learning to use chopsticks.

This pretty quilt was finished with loopy meander and stars.

Charity Quilt

This quilt was made by my friend Maxine to be used in a fundraising night for a boy who needs some assistance. I was happy to quilt it for her. The pictures show the front and the back. It was quilted in an Edge to Edge floral.
