Kokeshi Dolls quilted wall hanging for the Fouth of July

I created this for the Fourth of July 2012. I had so much fun making this....I enjoyed the planning and piecing...and three squares were enough....fun over. So, I am glad for the immediate gratification of a small piece. The center square has images of Kokeshi dolls which are part of Japanese folkart. I have five vintage dolls from my childhood. I don't collect them. I just like the ones I have. The red-white-blue fabrics represents me as an American and the center square represents my country of origin. I am truly Cheeseburger and Apple Pie while I lace my burger with Tonkatsu sauce. Yummm.
