I made this quilt for Alan D., another friend and co-worker, for his birthday last November. Alan loves sushi, and I found this great sushi print at Stonemountain and Daughter in Berkeley; I used the sushi fabric as the border. I designed the nine inner blocks: the five red blocks represent bento boxes, divided trays often used in Japanese restaurants; the four striped blocks represent rice (white) with slices of fish (red and yellow).
Alan is going to hang the quilt in his office at work.
