late fall

I walked by this building a lot before noticing the intricate tiles above the main windows.

Somehow they manage to be bold and subtle at the same time, and remind me of this page from the 1989 Quilt Engagement Calendar, which I kept.

The quilt is called Late Fall, by Junko Okuyama based on the Broken Dishes pattern. I just googled the artist and found that Wee Wonderfuls blogged this same quilt 3 years ago. We should start a fan club.

    Impressive! My quilting is not quite to that level yet. 🙂 But I’ve done enough now to be aware of how difficult and challenging that would be. I see the date on the building is 1876. It looks like it was a church. Do you know how it’s used today?

    …but I can’t see any quilting stitches. Are they there?

    Barb – I think the building is used as a school now.
    I assume there are quilting stitches, but I think the piecing is the main event.

    Thanks, Gonzomama!
