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.
