    One of my friends made the crane row. She did give me the pattern but since we moved, I have no clue where a lot of my stuff is.

    Featured in The Quiltmaker January/February '06 issue was a quilt called "Being Koi" that showed off Asian fabric very simply by using triangle squares paired light and dark, pieced together to form larger triangles surrounded by a border. A diagram of a koi was used for the quilting. You would have to see the photo to appreciate it!

    Beautiful work!
    What fabric did you use? Cotton or silk?
    Thanks for sharing.
    I can't wait to start mine.

    That is so beautiful. Because all of the fabrics ARE so beautiful it seems like you can't go wrong with putting them together. It's just wonderful to look at.

    I found an origami flower block and I believe I have seen the crane somewhere but I don't find it now.

    hi there,
    am new to the posting, however have been using this site for over a year if not two. i lived in japan for three years and have a great paper piece pattern for the fabrics which i must say they are lovely. i am still getting oriental fabrics from a few of the japanese ladies that were in the guild while stationed in okinawa. they are very talented when it comes to very intricate and hand quilting. not to discount any of the ladies i have read about and seen pictures of on this site, because we have some wonderful jaw dropping talent right here in the good old USA. i would be happy to mail the pattern to you and a picture of two of the quilts i have made using this and another pattern i have. am not so sure i could duplicate the paper piece on line or not. anyway feel free to post back and maybe you would have an interest.

    The article includes a drawing 6 1/2" talll and 5 1/4" wide. You can probably access the article with picture/drawing in their archives.

    If you like applique, the fan or the Dresden Plate come to mind. Those two patterns are some of my favorites. But if you can't decide, just send them all to me and I will give them a good home! :lol:

    Sue-- your quilt is beautiful. I tried to chose a favorite row, but I just can't. I don't remember ever seeing an origami pattern before.

    Pam--thanks for the link to the pattern of the flower. I will have to see if I can do fabric better than paper.

    Cathe--your quilt is wonderful. I have one along a similar line that I need to get quilted, then I will post it.

    I am a real fan of asian fabrics and am in the process of creating a table runner incorporating the bargello. I also wanted to incorporate the Japanees symbols for live, love and laugh, but have not been successful in finding a way to do this in an oversize style. May need to put in fans instead. It's hard to describe, but the bargello is in the center and the top right and bottom left are spaces that are perfect for placing either a set of the symbols or one of the other patterns. All this is on a background of faintly gold speckle on ivory to create a table runner or wall hanging. Maybe this would be an idea to get used to working with these fabrics which are absolutely gorgeous.

    I seem to be stuck with the design to use the Asian fabrics. I can't get it to look exactly how I want in EQ but this is close. I would applique the spokes of the parasol in the middle with a beige woodgrain fabric I have and turn the fans so that the tassels are all towards the center.

    There are blenders in all the color ranges I got so those would be the backgrounds and/or the centers of the fans.

    It's just a design with large pieces to show the fabrics. They don't show well in the parasol because EQ6 makes the pattern repeat so tiny.

    I love your design, that EQ seems to be a very handy tool to have.

    I like the way you can see large areas of the fabrics used too.

    That is so lovely. Your Asian fabrics will be shown off so well.

    Can't wait to see your photos as you work on your quilt.

    No suggestions here. What a beautiful array of fabrics, I think I would hate to even cut into them. I'm sure whatever quilt you decide, it will be fabulous!

    Why not use real tassels if you want. Especially if this is going to be a wall hanging. They are easy to make yourself. I usually use a heavier embroider thread to make mine for purses etc.

    I was thinking of that, wondering how small of tassels I could find. I didn't think of making them myself.
