Japanese Study 2

Japanese Quilt 2, 1988, 36" w. x 31 1/2" h.  In the 1980's I taught classes called "Japanese Quilting."  What the meant was that mostly Japanese fabric was used to make quilts of mostly a single shape (the half square triangle) in an improvisational approach that was always asymmetrical (as most classic Japanese  design is.)  The quilting often included Sashiko stitching, although often not with contrasting or heavier thread, as classic Japanese Sashiko stitching usually is done.  This was one of my samples.
