    My DD brought these beautiful silky fabrics from Kathmandu, Nepal and I'm afraid to cut them. Also what do you all suggest I make out of them?

    Wall hanging she brought made by Nepali women to help support a women's shelter.

    I can handle pillows but would'nt know where to start on trinket boxes. Do you have a source? Thank you for the great ideas!

    This is one of the quilt inmy "someday project" tag. I am a Japanese quilter and am going to do this with Jpanese fabric.
    But how about making one with another asian fabric?

    Wow-those fabrics are really special. I would have no idea what to make with them--I would just be caressing them daily! :lol:
