Quilting in Tabata

Yesterday my friend Jane took me to a lovely little kimono store in the middle of nowhere. From outside, it looked like nothing and I would have walked straight past it.

When we got there, the shop owner beckoned us over to the the corner of the shop and asked us to contribute to a quilt they were making to send to the earthquake disaster victims. We each had to sew 5 squares of silk together which would then be added to this beautiful quilt. Even though it was a small gesture, it was really lovely to be involved with something like that. Needless to say, I also came home with a bag of gorgeous fabrics to play with...
