Good Lord, that is gorgeous!  When Mrs. Robertson gets onto Craftster I will point her in your direction, as I am sure you two will have lots to talk about!  Cheesy

Kimby:

This is wonderful! I adore Japanese textiles, and have only done small quilting projects using them. I particularly like the piecing pattern you used for the yukata portions of the quilt -- very japanese in feeling.

I've had great success using perl cotton for sashiko, but would love to have a regular US source traditional thread. Where did you get yours?

Blue Engine:
Cantonese speakers (especially older ones) still use the expression "Carp jumped the dragon-gate" to speak of someone of humble origins having a great achievement. This expression also appears in martial arts, usually as the name for a particular movement or technique.

letter_d, I'm very sorry I haven't replied to you on this ... I haven't checked this thread for a while.

I ordered my sashiko thread from Ginger's Needlework and Quilting ... here's the link to their sashiko thread page:

Also, thank you for the info on the Cantonese saying. I'm going to forward it along to Raelyn. She tells me she is getting major raves on her quilt in her dorm room!

The quilt is stunning!  I took Japanese for five and a half years, so it holds a special place in my hart.  I LOVE Japanese fabrics, though I tend to concentrate more on the Japanese quilting fabrics.

Have you seen Kona Bay's Emperor and Emperor II collections?

What a lovely quilt.  The Japanese fabrics have such elegance and what you did with them is spectacular.  The quilting on it  is lovely too.  What a treat to view such a vision!

This was a fun quilt to make, too. I really didn't want to chop up my yukata fabrics too much, but wanted a pieced block to surround the furoshiki. I thought the Drunkard's Path fit the bill pretty well.

The best part was that I followed the design on the furoshiki for the quilting, so no marking! Yea!
