The Japanese prints are beautiful in this pattern. This quilt reminds me of the Cherry Blossoms blowing onto the water in Japan last spring. The bright pink print was bought on my trip. I ran the quilted stitching on a flowing diagonal to resemble the breeze.
If anyone has any suggestions for working with metallic threads for embroidery or quilting, please feel free to post some comments. This was my first try with the gold thread. I love the shiny look and would like to try more stitching techniques. Thank you :)
