My maternal grandmother had a huge influence over me as I was growing up. She was so awesome. Yes, she sewed and taught me a few sewing things. But she taught me a lot of about life and shaped who I became in many ways. I am lucky enough to have some pictures that belonged to her and hung in her tiny living room. She loved things to be very simple, and she loved these Asian themed pictures.
They now hang in my loft above a guest bed
from my husband's grandmother.
I thought the bed needed a proper quilt of with Asian influence and found these wonderful Japanese Taupes when I was visiting in Washington last spring.
This fabric must be magnetic too because when I entered my sewing room, I went straight for the stack in my sewing cabinet and a quilt began.
