Quilt for Japan Disaster

Here is my response to the disaster in Japan. It is a wall hanging quilt, 24" by 30" in size. It is machine pieced, appliqued and quilted.
The tree branch symbolizes the land & its people, who've been shaken (the bare branch), and the leaves, some who've fallen, but one remains, still hanging on.
This picture shows the calligraphic symbols that mean love & luck. Those were the only stencils I had to use on the quilt. The Japanese people must have both to survive.

Like so many who made quilts in response to the 9/11 disaster in New york (i did that too) this is my response to the disaster in Japan.


  1. Here is a list of places where you may donate comfort quilts for Japan.

  2. Kudos. Love the simple starkness.
