A small quilt and more prints

Here's the small quilt that I made using four of my tree prints.
Last week, I did a demo about gelli printing at my guild meeting. I really enjoyed it and made of course lots of new prints while demonstrating. When I came back home, I had to put all the prints on my studio floor to let them dry. Here are some of them, waiting to be ironed.
I've been thinking a lot about Kyoto and its beautiful cherry blossoms these days.
I spent some time practicing my hiragana,
trying to write さくらのき (sakura no ki), which means cherry tree, as nicely as possible.
I burnt a few thermal screens from the best ones and started printing on fabric.
I'm working on a larger quilt using more gelli prints as the starting point. I'm almost finished with the top. I'm thinking of entering it in a show, so I'm not sure I can show it here yet.
It looks like the weather will be gorgeous this weekend. It's good news because the garden is in great need of attention after this very wet winter.


The tree quilt is finished. I just need some sunshine in order to take a good photograph of it. But it's raining right now.
Yesterday was bright and sunny. So, I took a little walk near the water. The plum trees are already blooming. I even saw a Japanese cherry tree almost ready too.
