    I traced out the picture in full size on something like velum paper, then made a 2nd copy on freezer paper and numbered the pieces and marked joining areas. I also noted color etc. on each piece, this is your pattern. Cut out each piece and place it on the right side of fabric and press. When you study the picture you will see which piece needs to go up under the next etc. Fold fabric on the line that will be the top pieces and place them on top of the other piece when indicated by your markings. This is where you will stitch (hand) the pieces. You can build the picture on a background fabric or piece sections then place on background. The first tracing will act as guide to placement of pieces or sections. I pin the first tracing on top of the background then flip up tracing and slip pieces (sections into place). I think you could use needle turn method or fusible if you choose. Lots of luck

    Your Geisha Girl is beautiful. Wonderful colors and great detail. Uh, after looking at your wallhanging, I feel kind of silly complaining how hard the sunbonnet sue block of the month was going to be. You've given us all inspiration :-) :-)

    One word......G O R G E O U S ! !

    Now you are making me want to make one. It would probably take me years to complete. I'm not good when it comes to complicated things and I get frustrated REALLY easy. Maybe that would be something I could do while traveling. Would probably use fusible for it, that way I can just stitch it easier.

    I do need to get to finishing the heart that I started. Have to get some housework done too, but don't want to do that either. Let's see.......sewing or housework, sewing or housework, sewing or housework..........hmmmmmmm...........any suggestions? :)

    This is outstanding. You should market your pattern. I am sure we all would want to buy it.

    Just a beautiful work of art. Someday, after I have made all the kids and grandkids and probably by that time greatgrandkids quilts, I really want to do some art quilts like that.
    You should be proud. Again, beautiful.
