Yoko Saito Quilt Revealed

Well my Yoko Saito quilt now called “Japanese Applique” (sorry that isn’t a very exciting name) is finished (well almost!) and hanging on the wall of our stall at the Hamilton Quilt and Craft Fair. And I must say I am very pleased with it. Now you can all see it too.

I have almost finished the quilting – I am going to cross hatch the blocks – I have only done it one way on most of them at this stage and the border is also only stitched one way and I am thinking of mixing it up a bit – some cross hatching and some parallel lines just one way.

We have cut lots of Block of the Month sets and hope to sell many of them at the Show. Or of course you can pick them up from the shop - Patchwork Passion, Onehunga, Auckland, New Zealand. We have included a copy Yoko Saito's wonderful Applique Block book within the Block of the Month Programme.

Over the next few days I will post some of the other projects I have been working on and we have just released. So you will go to hardly ever hearing from me to getting lots of 
news over the next few weeks.
