    And are they just staying there, or have you been using your Asian fabrics?

    What have you made with them ... or are planning to?

    I have lots of them! They are my current favorite fabric. Those and batiks. I have used several in different quilts. Have not really used an Asian design for any of them. They are such lovely fabrics.
    In fact I bought several of them from your shop!!!!!

    I am currently making an applique quilt with mine. I am appliquing 5" circles on 6" background squares. Each circle is a different asian print or a different scene from the same print with multiple scenes. All by hand with prepared circles with seam allowance turned under. It is my to go project so I work on it very sporadically. Don't even know how many I need to get up to size so am always on the hunt for more Asians. I think they are beautiful.

    I have a fair amount. I love them and drool over them in fabric shops. I haven't done anything with them yet. But I will...someday!

    I do use a great deal of what sometimes falls into category of Asian, because so many have metallic. There a some that will remain in my "museum" because they is not yet a project worthy of these fabulous fabrics. I have been getting a bit more bold about using "museum" pieces as there have more available lately. I make quilted clothing with them and home dec . items. There seems to be more of the larger panels .. and I am not inclined to purchase panels.

    I love them. I have the pattern for a bow tuck bag all picked out and recently did a wall hanging with some of them but I want a quilt pattern to use the rest, thinking a fan quilt so I can get them all in there. The asian prints are stunning, I just love them.

    Not a single piece. I saw a jacket at a quilt show using Asian fabrics and it was fabulous. Maybe someday.
