The camphor tree grows big and strong but the flowers are dainty and small. For our friends in the Saga Prefecture.  Like the Camphor tree this quilt symbolizes long life, strength and like the tiny flowers unexpected happy surprises.

Natsumikan – Yamaguchi Prefecture

 

It has been a long, hot and humid summer.  Counting down the days until we leave for Yokohama.  I’m hoping it will be much cooler there than here in the islands.  92 degrees at 7PM but seeing friends and family in October will be a welcomed journey.  To our friends in the Yamaguchi Prefecture here is your designated flower… the blossom of the Natsumikan. (Mandarin Blossom). John made this design using the quarter fold versus the an eighth fold.240px-OrangeBloss_wb   250px-Map_of_Japan_with_highlight_on_35_Yamaguchi_prefecture.svg

Thank you for your patience.   Cissy
