Love Apple/Rising Sun
This is my entry for the Whiplash minature quilt contest. It measures about 21"x24", and is made entirely of scraps of vintage Japanese cloth. It is based on an antique Canadian quilt with a pattern called "Love Apples" which is an old term for tomatoes. As I embroidered the edges of the red circles, they reminded me of the rising sun on the Japanese flag, hence the name of this piece.
