    with this GORGEOUS fabric I just found.
    It's the Geisha Girl from Kona Bay/Nobu Collection.
    I just HAD to buy it!
    Ok, so I really didn't....YES I DID!
    Was reading about it and found out they only make so much and once it's gone, it's gone. SO.....I HAD TO GET IT!!

    Plus, when I went searching other sites for it, they were sold out, so I figured I better get while the getting was good!

    That's what I first saw!
    I bought 2 of them, plus coordinating fabric to go with it.
    I'll probably NEVER cut it, but I'll have it! :)

    Meant to add too....this is what happens when I click on the links at the bottom of these pages.

    If you need help with that overflowing closet, I will take some of that off your hands so your closet isn't too full. I don't mind doing it. It's the least I can do for a quilting buddy. Only glad to help out!!

    Oh, yes it is a must have. Those panels are gorgeous. I think the black is my favorite, too.

    What gorgeous fabric- I think it is wonderful that you purchased it as you will appreciate it in the way the designer hopes for. I have fabrics in the house here that will probably end up being buried with me as I fondle them all the time but never do anything with them as I can't make up my mind what the 'perfect' quilt would be sewn with them.

    Okay I can see me spending way too much money on that site!! On top of one of those panels, I also got the funniest looking "Quilting Squad" notecards, and a fun applique pattern of the "Quilting Diva" (I think thats the name of it). whew.... but good price for what I got!!

    Thanks (I think) for sharing!!!

    Cheers!

    You live in Canada right? How do you manage with the GST & duties? I'm in BC & don't usually order because of the "unknown" actual finished cost.

    Same Here :!: :lol: I saw a quilt several years ago with a similar figure--this figure was the size fo a bed qult and then last Feb at the same show was a smaller figure set in a wall hanging with samll blocks around it. I think thats what I will do. The large panel with samll blocks around it. The problem will be getting time to do it.

    ummm thats a really good question!!! I guess we dont' have to pay the Canadian taxes.. I've purchased some things where I had to pay duty to customs.. .other times I haven't had a hitch. I remember a few years ago purchasing two cross stitch patterns on ebay... I had to pay duty when it arrived.

    I am still waiting on my package from thousands of bolts.com, I am curious to see what happens there with duty and tax, etc. Stay tuned!

    yes I live in Newfoundland.

    Cheers

    I ordered the Japanese lady and can't wait for it to get here. I have coordinating fabrics to make a wall hanging---maybe use the fan pattern to surround the figure? I am not sure how that'd look so once it gets here, I'll play around with it some more.

    Did anyone order any of the coordinating fabrics? If so, which ones? I like the leaves, especially the red and the black.

    If I were to order the lady, I would make her into a wall hanging. Actually, I don't think I would use any other fabric around her - she's beautiful just the way she is.

    They have absolutely gorgeous oriental material. Click on fabrics and find the on-line store. Their fabric is kinda pricey, but the quality is excellent.

    I hate to even go into their store -- it's too dangerous (for my pocket book).
