Masami Yoshihara made this stunning appliqué quilt, Happy, to express the happiness she feels when Spring arrives. She pulled out all the stops by hand piecing, appliquéing, beading, embroidering and "trapunto-ing" (is that a word). It's a beautiful quilt and makes us Happy as well.

Happy was part of the Appliqué Large exhibit at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2018.
