    I just finished this tonight. I made it for my daughter's first apartment. She wants to do kind of an Asian theme using black and red. The colors in the pics are a lot more orange than the actual quilt is. Does it look Asian?

    This is the daughter who doesn't like quilts, so we'll just call this one a wallhanging!

    I know what you mean. The one thing I know how to do that's even remotely artistic and special, and she doesn't like it! Grrrrr!

    Lovely, I am sure she will adore it, maybe its just not 'hip' to like what your mom does, maybe this will change her mind :D

    You've outdid yourself! Perfect match of pattern and fabric. Are the fabrics a particular collection?

    I can't take credit for choosing the fabrics. It's a "Sweet Treat" from Pincushion Boutique. They package 8 coordinated fat quarters together, and their choices are almost always dead on!
