Chinese peaches

Here is another one of my Chinese blocks. I love how peaches are represented in Asian design with that very distinctive pointed end. And that thing at the side with the 4 brown dots is a lotus pod. While I don't recall ever seeing a peach while living there, I saw lotus growing in the pond outside my window. Since we lived in Southern China there were so many plants that I had never seen before and not speaking the language they were difficult to identify but I certainly enjoyed them. I am enjoying the memories that this quilt is bringing to me.
