When the world seems smaller

P1050569
This week I happily could pick up a parcel at the post office. I grew up in a time – I sound a hundred years old, but it was only twenty years ago – when receiving something from America was a great event. To imagine getting something from The Far East was not something … we did – really. Times change. This book was in my parcel. It is so beautiful. One can only ponder on what Yoko Saito might find in her imagination to thrill us with next. … or not, for seeing these projects and dreaming of making some is bliss …

The latest circle. I will soon have to “square up” these blocks. The search for background fabric has begun:) Little pumpkin had her tonsils out yesterday, and we are stuck at home for a couple of weeks. I hope to get some sewing done. See ya.

What a beautiful block. Enjoy your newest book. She's done a lot of amazing quilts! Three women in my guild is planning to go to Tokyo in january, inspired by her class at the yearly meeting. I can only dream of coming with them...

Your block is so very lovely - such pretty fabrics! How do you "square up" a round block?

Din runde blok er vidunderlig smuk.
Fine Fluing Geese blokke har du også syet.
God weekend.
Mange hilsner

I just LOVE that block! Do you draft them yourself? I have the latest Jinny Beyer book and she has lots of amazing circular blocks but I am too afraid of the geometry! Poor Pumpkin, I hope her throat feels better soon - good excuse for icecream!
