House Warming Patch Work by Yoko Saito.

Yoko Saito is a popular Japanese quilter, well, popular in Japan, I guess. :-) She is known for her use of neutrals-- lots of taupe, beige, gray, tans, etc. She uses wools, linens, silks, etc. besides cottons, and mixes types of fabrics in one project too. She also does a lot of hand piecing and hand quilting. And being Japanese, her book patterns are done in metric. Plus, the patterns in the book were quite small.

In my downsizing, I moved from a pc to a lap top. My lap top was new tech and my scanner/printer that I used with my pc was old tech, so I was without a way to copy her patterns unless I left home to use a scanner someplace else. So, I used graph paper to draw the patterns out. That's why you see in my previous picture all that crumpled graph paper in my scrap pile behind the stack of blocks. :-) It would have been handy to scan the patterns, then digitally re-size them. Now, I have these little piles of patterns, and I can't decide if I should save them? Maybe it's another one of those decisions where if I throw them out, a year later I will want them.

PS. You see the terrible low lighting in my bedroom where I sew... so it's a reason I prefer to not sew in the evening after I get home from work! I ought to break down and purchase a lamp.

I have one of her books - and it's all houses. Some are free standing projects, and some are quilt patterns. It was a spendy book and I drooled over it for quite some time before buying it. Have not made anything in it yet.

Here is a peak on the last round for Jaba's quilt. Should be able to finish it this weekend and then it can go off to it's home.

Since I bought fabric for this, I bought extra dark blue so it could be used for the binding if this ends up being the finished size of the quilt. I have no idea what Jaba's plans are as far as making it larger. So I'll send the fabric along with just in case.

My door bell rang this morning and there stood my mail carrier with a package! She said, "it's too big for the box and knowing you...it's fabric." I was excited! My round robin is home! Thank you so much to all of you! I love it!! I hope to quilt it next week and I think a solid black binding will finish it nicely.

This has been fun to see the progress of each quilt as they grow. We have a talented group of ladies!! Thanks again!

That's a beautiful border for Jaba, Macybaby! Totally gorgeous. What pretty fabrics.

Mary, glad you got your RR, safe and sound!

I finally got help to take a picture of sewbizgirl's top. My son moved some furniture in his room so nothing was in the way, and my granddaughter took the picture while her dad and I held it up. It's big! The second picture is one of the cornerstones of the round. The bird fabric is so cute.

SBG, I'll send you tracking when I've got it in the mail.

Oh, that's fabulous, Giv! I love it. The colors are dreamy... and I love the little birds in the corners. Thanks so much for all the hard work!

And thanks to everyone who worked on my quilt, and all your hard work too... Rebaquilts, Iceblossom, Maryb119, LeeAnn, and Givio! It's a treasure, for sure. I'll remember my RR friends whenever I see it!
