My children DEVOUR sushi like you would not believe. I've never paper pieced either, but if that's what a beginner can do, maybe I should try it sometime!! And I love that Japanese style, you know, given we'll be there in a month. I'll have to keep my eye out for that pattern!

AlyceB said...

Ooohh, I love the FQ's. My favorite sushi, since I'm not a big seafood person, is the veggie roll, asparagus in the middle, avacado, rice and wrapped in very thin tomato slices.. YUM. :)

I didn't try sushi until I was 40. Now I love it. I don't know what the different types are called. Usually my daughter and I buy a mixed box and share it together. We love it all.

Sunni @ Love Affair with my Brother said...

OK, so you will laugh at me, but I have only ever had grocery store sushi. I like the california roll!

Indianna said...

I'm a follower.... The teapot and cup look fantastic - helped be carefull fabric choice too.

Cille said...

I am a follower... and this particular fabric line was my first fabric crush ever. I even made my first own quilt in this line but due to sad circumstances decided to part with it last year (http://my-quilts.blogspot.com/2011/08/happiness-and-sadness.html)

Cille said...

Sushi? Not my cup of tea. The rest of my family loves sushi though so I usually get sticks and noodles instead.

tartankiwi said...

Great job on the paper piecing! I really want to try some fun designs like these, but will have to do a few other things first.
As for sushi, I'm a bit of a heathen and I haven't got a clue what they are all called, but it tastes good enough!

Jessica said...

I have never tried sushi...not into the whole raw fish thing, although I do know that not all sushi is like that LOL

Jessica said...

I am a follower!

Sarah said...

I've made my own veggie sushi nori rolls and stuff before - super tasty, but soooo long to make. It always looks so much fun though, if only it wasnt meat and fish!!

Sarah said...

I'm a follower too :-) Your paper piecing is looking fabulous, I cant wait to see the finished block!

Katy Cameron said...

Oh I love a good veggie sushi, as long as there's no avocado, and I do like some of the prawn related ones. Still annoyed that the shop that made my favourite sushi has changed their options in their snack pack, it's not as nice now!

Marika said...

I am really not a fan of sushi !!
Maybe I should try the veggie ones because raw fish disgust me a little.

Marika said...

Oh Jess, my boys LOVE sushi. I like California rolls -- but do you know how much it costs to fill up teenage boys on sushi? Lucky, My Little Sailor is now stationed in Japan and can buy his own sushi!

Aunt Marti said...

Oh! And I added your blog to Google Reader.

stephmabry said...

Sushi? I ate that once, out of total peer pressure! My husband and I were at a party for all the new biology dept. graduate students where he goes to school, and when we were going around the buffet, I was like "oh, sushi, maybe I should try that," since I'd never had it before. Of course, then I had to...and it was awful. :( It was just a California roll, but that seaweed or whatever it is that wraps it together? Boo!

Melissa said...

I'm a vegetarian, so don't eat sushi. Thanks for the giveaway!

Ella said...

I only eat veggie sushi. I don't like fish and am allergic to some.

Hi Jess--
Gosh you have been a busy girl since I looked here last! (I follow from FB rather than blogville normally) I cannot believe the amount you are getting through, and with that small person helping too :)
Well done!
OK, I love sushi. It is my whole family's favourite and my pick would have to be these yummy spider rolls they make at my local--friend crab in sushi--um, hell yeah!!
Thanks for the giveaway--

eilah said...

Your paper-piecing is wonderful!! That is something that I haven't really tried yet, but definitely want to! And sushi is another thing that I haven't tried yet--- but would like to some day! I *have* tried a Swedish dish that is made with raw fish, though, so that's sort of close, I guess. ;-) It was delicious! :-) Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Sushi isn't big in rural Florida - think BBQ - and I like cooked sushi like calf. roll.

My favorite things to get at the sushi-go-rounds are Inari (tofu pocket of rice), Tamago (basically scrambled egg with a touch of soy sauce over a bit of sushi rice), and Ebi Tempura (batter-fried shrimp on a bit of sushi rice). I usually get edamame and maybe a bowl of udon to go with it all. No fish! So much yum!
