posting to Tokyo

I am ready to send off the block I made for the NHK sponsored "Partnership Quilt", part of the Tokyo  International Great Quilt Festival, which occurs every year in January.  This is the first year I am participating, and it is thanks to Queenie that I first heard about it, and was encouraged to participate :)

I lived two different times in Japan, did several years of business (in my younger years) flying back and forth between the USA and Japan, and have a very very dear love for Japan and the Japanese.

the theme this year is "Cute".....what came first to my mind was dandelions and a particular fabric I have with dandelions on it....

                           can you see the bits of dandelion puffs?

last year there were 10,519 blocks received, and 82 quilts made and auctioned off for charity ...I am so honored to be a part of this enterprise. 

To God be the glory :)

The quote on the quilt is
 1 John 4:10
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.


  1. this is a lovely block to add to the thousands of others that will be made. I will attempt one next year. I spent time with Queenie at the festival of quilts last weekend.

  2. What a lovely idea I wonder who has the job of putting them all together.

  3. What a lovely block for such a lovely project!
