Original Quilt Design – This design takes it’s inspiration from the many beautiful Kimonos I have seen on my trips to Japan.
I used a Japanese themed panel for the focus design of the body of the Kimono. To complement the panel, I used a half square triangle design that looks like the shape of a crane; using complimentary Japanese style fabrics.
