A few days ago however, I felt that it was the right time to return to my addiction/therapy/quilting and I have finally started the Japanese quilt I purchased as a kit from Kathy at Material Obsession back in July.
Tokyo Rose pattern and fabric kit from Material Obsession
It's funny you know, I had seen this pattern around for a long time before I bought it, one of those that kept catching my eye. However when I came to make it up, I decided I didn't want to go with the squares after all. I had been inspired by a quilt the lovely Andi had made up for her Mum (see her quilt here), and decided that triangles were what I was after.
When Kaffe's latest book Quilts en Provence was released recently, I adored Liza Prior Lucy's Fruit Salad quilt.

After checking out the fabric requirements, I discovered that I could turn my Tokyo Rose kit into a Japanese Fruit Salad quilt.
Looks great as a table cloth...
I'm thinking a simple all over pattern for the quilting. I will think about that for a little longer before I decide!
Thank you also to everyone who wished me happy birthday last Friday on facebook, I really appreciated your wishes from around the world and had an awesome day. xo
