    I have obtained a nice stash of Asian-themed fabrics and panels lately .The latest ones are really beautiful. However, I have very few patterns. Can anyone suggest resources that would stress, in a simple way, the beauty of these designs?

    The "sidelights" patterns really seem to work well with some of these amazing designs.

    Here's one example:

    I too have bought a lot of oriental fabrics and the thought I had was to show off the fabrics with the pretty scenes in large plain blocks, just so you can show case the fabrics. Sash in between too if need be. Didn't know how much I liked them until I got them all gathered together into a huge tub! Love the pics put up already on this thread.

    I like that twelve moons.
    Wonder how that would be for a single panel instead of an attic windows look....

    Do you know of a place to find patterns for Asian Lady Pannel? I bought one at a quilt show with out even thinking about how to put it together as a quilt.
