Japanese Nights

This is one of my round robin blocks, from Sue M. The theme is Asian Nights, and she wanted Japanese. I put in a temari pattern first, but it didn't look good, so I ripped it out and replaced it with ribbon cherry blossoms and scattered beads about. Then I made a sashiko leaf. There wasn't much room between the motifs for an elaborate seam treatment, I went with a simple beaded fly stitch.
