I've had cherry trees in my yard for years. I love the white blossoms in the spring, once memorably with six Baltimore orioles. While I was selecting fabrics for the background of the quilt from the fabric shelves I came across a gold drapery fabric with women's faces printed on it. Remembering many Japanese wood block prints of "Viewing the Cherry Blossoms," I decided to incorporate one face into the background of the quilt.
