From movie set to fabric fun!

A favorite movie of Sean's and mine is "Memoirs of a Geisha". 
The cinematography is breathtaking and each time I see the movie,  I set it as a goal to someday visit the grandeur.  I love love love the romance scene in the Asian Garden.....

Today, mom and I headed to the dodgeball arena to spend a couple of hours with Noah. 
What to pack with me to create?.....
I have wanted to create a landscape piece since buying Rose Hughes' Dream Landscapes and use fabric collage technics as described in Susan Carlson's Serendipity Quilts...

Poof!  A peaceful afternoon of glueing, cutting and quilting....
I share with you,


My Asian Garden....
Selvage from the fabric that I based the piece around...





Author of Serendipity Quilts is so encouraging while teaching in her book, she reminds us to be patient in the beginnings of the cutting and glueing of scraps in that the piece will look rough and disjointed but as it is glued and stitched the borders blur and soon the piece is a solid picture....

May this inspire a memory of a peaceful moment, trip to Asia, aspiration of a tattoo of Cherry blossoms.....as for me, date night with Sean....

Love, Em

Ohh la la.... romance is in the air.... What I observe from your work is you growing in your creativeness by leaps and bounds. I am jealous for time to spend catching up with you.

I've not seen the movie, but I LOVED the book! Your little quilt definitely puts me in mind of some of the imagery from the book - just lovely!
