Olive Branch

This is the next small block - well actually the small blocks for the wedding quilt are 
not that small - 10". After all it is going to be a King sized quilt, so the blocks 
need to be big!

I love the background fabric and think Kate will too.

Some of these woven fabrics from Japan are able to be used on the back side as well, 
but not this one - the loops are just too big and would get caught in things. But I do always check and do use the reverse side quite often.

I think this is the fastest block I have made in a long time. It is quite simple but 
some of the blocks in the original inspirational quilt from Hitomi's "Quilt House" 
book were too. But of course it was much small in the Yoko Saito book 
that it came from. Nothing like a bit of space! So Japanese.

Thanks to all those who are commenting - there is nothing like a quick comment 
to keep a blogger going.


  1. beautiful! I know how you feel about the comments, it is nice.

  2. It's going to be a masterpiece!

  3. Another nice block. I love the background too. I used your japanese fabrics as backgrounds for my christmas wool applique quilt and I was thrilled with how the whole quilt looked.
