Japanese Quilt

Well, I am slowly getting back into my quilting and other things, after very intermitent work. About 12 months ago, I purchased a beautiful Japanese Quilt Kit. put it aside until I thought I had enough experience and expertise to produce perfect work, but then I decided that it would be ok to start making the blocks, as long as I took it slowly and checked everything for each block many times. I began the first block within a few weeks of purchasing the kit, and have now almost completed this first block, but it is so pretty that I am putting a photo on my blog now. The only part not finished, is the moss at the base of the tree.
So, here is the block that I am very proud of - I thought that I would make a mess of it. Now I can begin the second block. Sorry about the sideways photo, but I don't know how to make it turn

The blocks will be posted as they are finished, then the quilt when it has been completed.

I have set myself a challenge to complete a project every 2 months. I was going to make it every month, but that sounded too close - I will see how it goes.

Blessings to all
