Quilting Inspirations

In one of my earliest blogs, I mentioned how quilters look to their gardens for inspiration. Well, the wonderful, ancient gardens of Japan are inspirational to me. While in Yokohama, I was able to visit Sankeien Garden. It is interesting that the garden was created by Sankei Hara who built his fortune through the silk trade. The garden is now over a hundred years old and contains many ancient structures that have been moved there over time. One of the oldest is the three-story Pagoda which was moved there from Kyoto. It dates back to 1457.
