For several years I have participated in the East Quilts West workshop held at my local quilt shop, Quilted Fox (www.quiltedfox.com). The class is led by the shop's owner, Louise Georgia. The blocks are based on the ones in Kumiko Sudo's book, "East Quilts West." Although the book is now out of print, copies can usually be found at online merchants that sell books. This is the block we are working on this month, Hinamatsuri or Girl's Festival.
