    Sakura season and my latest quilt

    It's supposed to rain this weekend which means we might loose all the sakura (cherry blossoms) that just opened. So I had to hurry up and go get some shots of my new quilt that I was saving just for these blossoms. While I was taking pictures, a group of admirers snuck up behind me and were very interested. One spoke English and was a fellow quilter herself but explained she did hers by hand. She was very impressed that mine was all done on machine and so were her friends, probably not more impressed than me of the fact they hand-piece. She then inquired about the fabric and I told her I used a jellyroll and got out my phone to show her MSQC. Even though the fabric is made in Japan you just don't see it here, at least not where I am. Not to mention they use a lot of muted colors (very apparent in their clothing) and exclaimed how bright my quilt was. It was a very nice exchange and I smiled all the way home.

          That is just beautiful, both the quilt and the sakura! Last year a fabric line called Sakura Park came out, featuring the cherry blossoms. Now I understand the nameM

                That's a gorgeous quilt, Trisha! Isn't it amazing how quilters everywhere speak the same language! It sounds like you were a very goo ambassador!

                      Trisha - your quilt is beautiful! Shared the photos and your interesting story with my husband who was stationed at Sasebo during the 60's. He remembers it as a very nice duty station. He was aboard the USS Ajax and there was only one other ship there at that time.

                      Anyway, back to your quilt - Love the colors and design. Very nice job!
