As I told you in this blog entry the theme this time is Floral Message or The Flower Language.
First I thought I would make a fantasy flower and a 'fantastic' message, but then settled for one of the most traditional and well known messages; the Olive branch.
Following my tradition, I included the Swedish flag; just to add a bit of 'international' flair. After all The Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival, has 'international' in its title!
For the readers of this blog who are in Japan, I have some more information.
In NHK's monthly craft magazine, 'Sutekini Handmade', June issue
there are some suggestions of floral blocks made by Kathy Nakajima, who is in charge of the Partnership Quilt project this year.
Another piece of information for those in Japan who intend to contribute with a block:
If you include a postcard like the one below (通常はがき, tsuujou hagaki) addressed to yourself and leave the back blank, NHK will then print the number of the quilt into which your block has been added, and send it to you. You will also get a coupon for a small reduction of the entry ticket.
