Final Block

Well that is all the Japanese Blocks done for this quilt.
This last one is a variation on a Chrysanthemum Block from Susan Briscoe's book
on Japanese Quilt Blocks.

The Chrysanthemum is the kamon (family crest) of the Japanese Imperial family.

Now I need to choose some fabric for the borders - I want to continue the pieced 
block formation into the borders but don't have any of either of contrast fabrics left. 
So it will be a search through my dwindling stash of old kimono silks. 
The border may have to be scrappier than expected if I want to use fabrics from
my stash. I'll let you know how I get on.
