    Asian theme quilt for sofa

    I have always thought that anything Asian was beautiful, especially the fabrics that are out today. Before I started quilting I did counted cross stitch and have an Asian girl matted and framed on the wall in the family room. So, when I decided to make a new quilt for the sofa, Asian fabric was my obvious choice (I think I just wanted to go to the quilt store and buy some for my stash). It measure approx 59x68 and has 80/20 polyester-cotton batting. I forgot to take a picture of the back. It's non-pil brown fleece. I hope you like it.

    Beautiful collection of Asian fabrics and I LOVE your sashing. I like the colors and block placement, as well. Thanks for sharing.

    I love the Asian fabrics as well, but have never been able to figure out the best pattern to showcase them. This is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

    So, So beautiful!! I just bought some Asian fabric myself and am looking for ways to put it together! How did you come up with this arrangement?
