Japanese quilt and more.

My Japanese quilt has been beautifully quilted by Jenny Jameson at Sunrise Quilting in Diamond Creek, and is now on show over the back of our couch in the lounge room.

Even Tiger seems impressed, checking out the back of it as I flipped it over.  The backing fabric is from The Quilt Shop in Eltham, where Alison and Sharon are always ready to provide advice and suggestions, as well as selling fabric from their incredible range!


But it looks like this won't be the last Japanese fabric quilt I make.  My generous friend Aiko in Tokyo has just sent me another parcel of materials - completely different from the above.  Traditional day Kimono fabrics in indigo, stripes and browns.  At first glance I thought What????  but after going through my Japanese quilting books, I can see the potential.  Watch this space, but don't hold your breath - LOL!
