2014 My first block of the year is a horse! 今年の干支(うま)にちなんだログキャビンキルトブロック


Here's my first block of the year... Yes it's a small log cabin block with a fussy cut horse in the center, because 2014 is the year of the horse according to the Chinese zodiac calendar!

We have two "horses" in our family - my hubby and my youngest girl. They are both born in the year of the horse.


今年はじめてのキルトブロックには、今年の干支にちなんだ「うま」をモチーフにしたものを作ってみました。我が家では、夫と次女がうま年生まれなのです。


I made another block with my favorite Russian Matryoshka doll in the center. I wish I was born in the year of Matryoshka! lol

もう一枚、大好きなマトリョーシカのキルトブロックも作ってみましたよ。ちなみに私の干支はマトリョーシカです。(←って、そんなワケないですね・・・笑)。


This Japanese fabric was used to fussy cut the horse and the Matryoshka doll placed in the center.

I wish you all have an active and energetic year of the horse!

うま年の2014年。皆さんにとっても活動的で素晴らしい一年になりますように^^
