ASIJ Quilt 2008

Cherry Blossoms in the Moonlight, completed and hung at the ELC February 26, 2008.

Since the auction date was chosen earlier than other years, we three, Me, Kendra and Jacqueline, met in June and discussed plans to make a smaller quilt designed to be hung on the wall.  A 4 panel screen seemed to be a good idea because the panels could be worked on individually and joined at the end.  We met again at the end of September and word was sent out to enlist helping hands.  Piecing was begun October 23, first cutting and arranging the background fabrics.  By Christmas break, the aplique had begun. There were a lot of petals both silk and cotton. Jacqueline did the embroidery on each flower.
