    I am going to make place mats for a girlfriend who lives in Japan. She is American but works with the Japanese people and has them in her home socially several times a week. I made a set of place mats for her with an "American theme" -- red, white, and blue, with lots of stars and some stripes. Now I want to make a set that have a "Japanese flavor." The pattern I am using has 5 different fabrics + a binding fabric.

    Ideas as to what I should do?

    How about putting a kimono as a center piece? Ginger jar? Pagoda? Lantern?
