The temperatures are dropping in many parts of the world. If crisp mornings and chilly nights are not for you, wrap yourself up in Sakura, LoveBug Studio’s sweet floral collection by Kathy Engle, while you dream of warmer times!

Ebony, the designer behind LoveBug Studios, designed and created a gorgeous Block of the Month program, and eight supporting projects. Each supporting project pulls a block from the BOM and expands the design into a full unique quilt or runner!

There is much more to the story, though! Sakura means “cherry blossom”, and Ebony drew inspiration from the Japanese custom of “enjoying the transient beauty of flowers” for each of her pieces. After the Block of the Month quilt, Hanami, each of the supporting quilts is named after a city known for its cherry blossom experience and are shown in order of the blooming schedule!

Kyushu • 48″ x 60″

Shikoku • 30″ x 102″

Chugoku • 72″ x 72″

Kansai • 48″ x 60″

Chubu • 16″ x 51″

Kanto • 21″ x 21″

Tohoku • 42″ x 42″

Hokkaido • 54″ x 54″

Don’t miss the perfectly coordinated Sakura thread collection from Aurifil, curated by Ebony! *all the heart eyes*
