Materials/Techniques: Asian Dreams Crazy Quilt is pieced with Asian theme cottons. The seam treatments are embroidered with Japanese silk buttonhole thread except for the two seams embellished with couched gold ribbon. Embellishments on the patches consist of ribbon flowers, lace motifs, charms and found objects.

Artist Statement: I worked on this quilt while waiting to hear from friends in Japan after the earthquake in Sendai and the ensuing tsunami. Working on the embroidery kept my mind occupied during the disaster and while waiting for power and phone service to be restored afterwards.
