Chain Link is made from Kaffe Fassett stripes and Yoshiko Jisenji fabric. I was sorting my fabric stash and decided to use fabrics that made me happy and these two designers just stood out. I saw the pattern for this quilt from the 2020 Tokyo Quilt Show. Of course I didn't attend, but saw the photo from a blogger who did. The quilt was an embroidered crazy quilt made by Matsuko Sugi. Her fantastic quilt was hand embroidered with a beautiful selection of what I think are japanese silks. I named it chain link, but I'm not sure if that is the correct name of this pattern, because I haven't seen it in a book. It is a challenging piece to put together, but if you use beautiful fabric you'll be challenged to finish it.
Hoku Anuenue or Rainbow Stars
The Hoffman 1895 Watercolor panel was the inspiration for Hoku Anuenue or Rainbow Stars. I had received the panel as a gift from Betsy and I wondered how I was going to use the colors on the panel. I didn't have a clue and just started cutting out the small diamond shapes. I finally made my own pattern of 5 pointed stars and used the panel color chart to mimic the layout of the colors. The stars are hand pieced and the borders are machine pieced using the leftover diamond shapes. It is machine quilted.

Kaffe Fassett #1
Kaffe Fasset #3
Some of the fabrics are really old and some I'm not sure if they were KF but if it looked like it, I used them.
My friend Lily was able to fix my laptop, so I am able to write on this blog. Thank you Lily, it took a long time but it was worth it. I'll have to catch up for the whole year that I didn't post. Please bear with me.

It started as White - 2
I wish I could remember how I made that green batik. I know that I had a lot of fun making these. It helped that the classes had everything prepared and all the dyes and materials there for you to use.
