Oldie but a goodie--Japanese heroine
This quilt is a few years old, but I didn't have a blog when I made it--so I'm posting it now for the first time. The central image is from a cotton Japanese banner--it is actually only about half of the very long, vertical banner which is attached to a tall bamboo pole during parades. The border with the large white stars is a tie-dyed fabric from an old yukata (cotton kimono). I used many small pieces of Japanese fabrics to piece the border. Somehow, I still have plenty of Japanese fabric left--it does seem to multiply in my stash.
