Orinuno Quilt plans

Orinuno, I have learned, is the name for Japanese fabric folding, akin to origami. I have my fabric circles and smaller squares, and squares of wool batting, all cut out for my planned Orinuno Quilt. I have done one block as a test piece. The rest I will take to Thetis Island with me for our quilting retreat.
