Quilts

I'm getting pieced tops ready for the next step and decided to use some of the Japanese fabrics I have. The silks and rayons are all kinds of weights and don't play together well. Batting and quilting will help.I want to do some hand stitching around the butterfly and bamboo.
I always loved this little piece and can see machine work on the flowers. Obi scraps tend to have problem areas and this has a worn section on the bottom right. I thought about trimming it off, but the proportions were wrong then, so I used an iron on stabilizer on the back and will quilt it in place to reinforce that area.
This was the most interesting of the scraps and will have machine stitching to accent the shapes. I had more red and black scraps than I realized.
