All I can say is "WOW"! What an imagination and skill. The quilting is wonderful. I (at this time) DO NOT plan to take on something this beautiful and challenging! Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for showing this to all of us.

This quilt is definitely one for a museum. I love the mix of fabrics, the color gradation, the value changes, and of course all of the applique. I hope to be able to go to the quilt show in Japan one day. I am awed by the attention to every tiny detail Japanese quiltmakers show in their quilts. Exceptional!
