|"Spirit of Japan #1:
"This quilt is an original
design. I loved working with these
different Japanese fabrics.
I tried for some asymmetry, typical of the
Japanese aesthetic, with both the lines of
embroidery and the border design. The
squares and circles in the border are trying to
'escape' the rigid, geometric confines of the
Machine pieced, hand appliqued, hand
embroidered, hand quilted. Border
stitching includes Sashiko."
