冬来たりなば春遠からじ If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?


Now in the CQI, Leslie is organizing a CQ A-Z Lesson for newbies. It's started from January and there have been so useful lessons given by members. This is one of the block piecing methods Diane taught us. I used her pattern and just sewed the fabric pieces in order.


Here's the finished one after my embellishing. According to the Japanese traditonal old calender February 4 is the day spring starts and we call the day "Ri'syun", though we had the coldest weather on that day. I stitched the word of "Ri'syun" in Chinese characters.


I feel I am not good at handling pink.


I completed this block as my AA for Margreet and mailed it her.
I chose a line from Shelley's poem for her to add.

If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?

What an interesting looking piecing pattern. I will have to try one like that. I think you handled the pink quite well!
