"Momijigari" is the wonderful old Japanese tradition of visiting areas where leaves have turned their brilliant autumn colours. I have always admired Japanese gardens, and was inspired after seeing so many glorious photos from woods, gardens and fields in Japan.
"Momijigari" is machine pieced, appliquéd and quilted. Additional techniques are hand- and machine-embroidery, stenciling, painting, heat stressing and threadwork with water-soluble stabilizer.
