Miss M sent me an email with some color choices and inspiration images:
I am drawing from my stash of Japanese scraps, some neutral linen and muslin, shot cottons, and lots of "modern" fabrics purchased at the City Quilter in NYC and Quilter's Way in MA.
If I were making this quilt for a wee toddler or preschooler, I would quilt and bind it as is - I like the proportions. But for a college student it needs to double in size! I have the rows all set to piece.
On Friday, David, Tommy and I took a daytrip to Hakone - by the end of the day, we had enjoyed various views of Mt. Fuji and had taken subway, bullet train, train, cable car, ropeway, ship (!), and taxi. Lots and lots of walking too. It was a sunny brisk day - just a great outing and if you are a local, I highly recommend it!

And for 500 yen you can purchase a steaming packet of eggs which have been hard boiled in the sulfured water. The shells turn a beautiful matte black - reminded me of soapstone.
To me, that's time to make at least seven additional quilts:).
