Default Japanese Ladies

I wanted to incorporate the Japanese panels of the ladies into a quilt so this is what I came up with. It's my own design; offset the panels and then used the free garden path quilt block I got from McCall's quilting on each side. I did make the blocks 10" vs. 14" that the McCall's instructions finished at. The whole quilt finished at about 63" x 73". This quilt will be given to a friend who has been to Japan many times and taught English there.

Wonderful designs. Looks like a shoji screen.
