    Japanese Ladies

    Some months ago, I asked for help from the members to contact me if they had any small pieces of oriental fabric.
    . The response was great and with the additional help of one of my friends in our local Bee, I had a very good selection of fabric to work with. The wall hanging of "Japanese Ladies" is 26" by 36" and is raw edge applique. Each lady is approximately 14" tall. Thank you to the quilters who were so nice to take the time to respond to my plea for fabric.
    I will be entering this quilt plus a couple of others in our Quilt show in May. Will try to post those also.The first picture is called "Birds on a Wire". I will have to look for my other pictures and post them later. Lizzy.Name:  IMG_0084.JPG

    Is the Japanese Ladies a pattern we can buy? Or is it your design? It is just beautiful.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I really enjoyed making that quilt. The book is "The Girls' Extraordinary Adventures by Susan G. Hill. It was published by Doheny Publications, Inc.,, Edmonds, Washington. Published in l996; ISBN number is 0-945169-19-1. I found it in a used book store in Texas. If you find any information about Susan Hill, please let me know. Hope you can find a copy. Have fun.

    both lovely , lovely quilts. wouldn't it have been funny if Hitchcock had put quilts on the wires for the birds to look at in the movie The Birds? sorry, but the quilt made me think of that movie. too many birds are still scary to me.

    Your Geisha quilt is outstanding. I love all the embellishment you did on it in their hair and on the fan. The bird on a wire quilt is also very cute. Good luck in the show!

    I love the Geishas -- you did a great job on that quilt!! The birds on a wire reminds me of my Grandmother trying to keep the birds off of the clothes lines when she put up the clothes. Great quilts!!

    Lizzy, your quilts are beautiful! But the Japanese ladies take the prize. What a splendid job you did on their kimonos.

    It is the cover photo on a magazine "Quilt Mania, The Quilt Magazine" www.quiltmania.com, the March/April 2012. Bought the magazine at a quilt shop in Houston. Maybe you can find a back issue. Good luck. Thanks for the kind words.
