Today I finished stitching my first block from Susan Briscoe's book "125 Japanese Quilt Blocks". This is going to be along term project using a variety of blocks form her books. Some will be appliqued, others pieced or sashiko stitched.
I am using a roll of kimono silk for the backgrounds and various scrap bag kimono silks for the applique pieces. I have picked these up in Flea Markets in Japan.
