    I usually get my ideas when i am taking a shower but yesterday I had a dream about what the quilt should look like. I am working on it today and hope to be able to show you some of my additions. It has an oriental theme and my brother worked in Japan for a period in t the 80's. He took lessons to learn a dance. He has the kimono he used and sent me pictures of it. I am using that in my quilt.

    I've added a border and made some of my appliques that I am going to put on the quilt.
