All the day ,from early morning to late evening we were learning how to do blocks in a japaneese way.I did it all by hand.Very relaxing.Some also used sewing machine.This way of doing blocks give you the opportunity to use small squares of fabrics or small embroideries or maybe fabric flowers I have seen in japaneese books.
I used a square ,4",that gives the size of the block.You also have a circle of fabric,bigger than the square and the batting,for the background and the "frame".

Yesterday I had an exciting day to do this block for a sewing friend.Really a challenge to get the right size ,12.5".What was the nicest was to figure out how to use the different fabrics she sent me.
I made some changes.Here you find the the tutorial I used.
This is the newest angel in our home.In orange reminding of the fish festival we had on Saturday.
A link to a blog showing the way to "Kalix löjrom",a very tasteful thing.
Still some flowers in our garden.
