Materials/Techniques: Machine pieced and quilted.

Artist Statement: I love Japanese art and the beautiful Japanese fabrics, which I used in making this quilt. The Koi story is inspiring for its courage in overcoming obstacles. In Japanese legend, every year millions of koi fish swim upstream up the Rainbow River. Only once in many years one Koi is dedicated and strong enough to swim all the way to the head of the river, to the Celestial Gate and leap from the water. He is transformed into a dragon.
