Some Japanese goodness

A new little project I'm working on. Finally using my small collection of Japanese prints. This has been in my brain and on my cutting table for a while. Now it's finally having its' turn to be sewn together.
A few other vintage reproductions included. I just love the little girl loosing her hat on her wild ride on the see-saw.

I'm also sewing with a linen/cotton blend for the first time and really liking the look. I'm even more curious to see what it looks like after quilting and washing. I'll let you know how it goes.
And if you want some Japanese goodness of your own, check out this new-to-me blog, Lovely Little Handmades. Kerri is giving away 5" squares of all of these prints. So adorable. She has some beautiful quilts as well.
Have a happy weekend dreaming of toadstools and hedgehogs and all their little chums.

  2. The first picture told me that you might be using linen. I like the look and would be curious to see how this washes up. I love the Japanese fabrics in this quilt. I have a very small collection.
