Don’t be fooled by the title or cover of this book – it just isn’t for lovers of Japanese fabrics or Japanese quilts. Most of the quilts in this book are not dependent on having Japanese fabrics – they would look just as stunning in Kaffe, French General or a blend of geometric prints to name a few. The simple quilts and projects are designed to let your favourite fabrics take centre stage using the easiest methods to obtain maximum effect. With each pattern Susan offers trusted tips and personal insights into her time in Japan and you find yourself not only being drawn into the quilts but also into the Japanese culture and way of life. This book will bring the simplicity and sophistication of Japanese style into your home with these easy to make quilts. This gorgeous book will be a welcome addition to your quilting library.
We were thrilled to welcome Coralee back to Precious Time. She came in to visit as well as purchase some fabrics while visiting her daughter, who recently gave birth to a beautiful baby boy – Harrison. Coralee brought in two beautiful quilts to share with us.

With Valentines Day just around the corner I thought I would share this quote with you.
A rose can say "I love you"; an orchid can enthrall; but a weed bouquet in a chubby fist, thats the best of all!
Enjoy your weekend.....lisa
