    Glorious Geishas quilt for my DSIL

    This is a quilt that I designed for my sister-in-law Nina. She saw the fan fabric and gasped so I knew I had found the right one to make her a quilt from. The gold geisha fabric is also the backing. I hope you like it. I am giving it to her in 2 weeks. It was all I could do to not put it in a box and ship it to her, but I wanted to see her face!! It doesn't look very big on my kitchen floor, but it is a queen size.

    That's a wonderful combo of geisha and fan blocks! Are the fans stack and whack?

    Perfect...she will hug you so tight you will not be able to take a deep breathe for a week. If she doesn't I will, that is so pretty.

    UOTE=Fraew;5157398]Geeze...how big is your kitchen???

    It's beautiful.[/QUOTE]

    My kitchen is pretty big!! My DH tore down the old one and built me an entirely new one from the ground up about 4 years ago. We own a lovely heritage house, built in 1904 but the kitchen was typical of the era - no real cabinets (the cabinets that were there were built out of pieces of wood - when I opened my tupperware cupboard, everything fell out on me!) I finally have my dream kitchen and it is the only place that I can lay my blocks out so I can get an overall view. I love my DH!! He is the best!! When we bought the house in 1989, he promised me that he would make it exactly like I wanted and he has lived up to his end of that promise!!

    Very beautiful.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
