Japanese quilt

A friend in my stitching group is having a significant birthday next month.  So we're making her a Japanese style quilt.  Loosely based on one that another friend received as a wedding gift.

Starting with Kona Indigo cotton, the plan is each person makes three 9 1/2 inch (unfinished) blocks.  One is Sashiko stitching on the Kona, the other two can be a combination of pieced, applique or Sashiko. 

I've started out simply, maybe my third block will be a bit more challenging.
