Part 2 - April Temari Challenge - 20 Faces to Fill

Quick post today. This is a follow up on the challenge 20 faces marking sampler going on in TemariChallenge Yahoo group

Here are a couple of photographs of the temari I stitched with this marking:

 Color! This combination of natural, muted colors has always been in the back of my mind. Susan Briscoe inspired me to choose the perle cotton colors in her book Japanese Taupe Quilts.

Many thanks to Susan for the inspiration. Except now, I've got to go stitch some of her quilts!
