Japan



Yesterday I made this Japan quilt for the Australian and New Zealand Art Quilters group. Like Russia, Japan is a country that I have never been to but would love to visit. I used the Japanese flag, the outline of the country and the offical name of the country in Japanese to design my quilt.



I need to send off four country quilts in March, for they will be exhibited at the Australasian Quilt Convention in Melbourne in April. Although I have made four country quilts, I am not happy with one of them (Morocco) and another one (Blue Rose, my Barcelona quilt for AQATW) does not really go well with the rest of the series, I think. So I intend to make another one in the next week... if I can find the time!

Love these quilts Linda - great designs. Also enjoyed catching up with your printing: Spoonflower & the thermofax prints. Congrats on your good news.

Deze vind ik leuk. Die stuur ik door naar m'n zoon in japan.
