Contemporary Quilt Journal 2012 August

Cherry Blossom .

The inspiration was a bookmark with a Japanese print.

I used different yellow hand dyed fabrics, machine pieced in squares with a wavey black insert, for a pond or lake?

The squares were given a gold glow with "markel" sticks, as were the waves in the black.

I made a stencil for the tree and painted it with fabric paint. Machine quilted and silk ribbon embroidery for the flowers and the buds.
