    Finally got my fabric with the Geisha Girl.
    I'm glad I ordered 48 inches and not the 24. I was thinking it was a panel because that is what it looked like on the website.

    It's beautiful! You MADE me buy the black! LOL! I have no idea what I'll do with it, so make sure you post your creation. I need direction! Isn't it lovely?

    Well? Thinking it WAS a panel, I was going to Attic Window it. I'm still going to do it, but not exactly sure HOW. It definitely won't be a wall hanging, want it for a quilt. Just need to figure that part out now since there are so many of them girls on the fabric. UGH!!
    I wished it had said that on the website before I ordered it.
    Sooo...now I need to "hurt" my brain figuring this out.

    Tirhni your new fabrics are 'AB FAB' - I agree with you that to showcase the main fabric you gonna have to come up with something VERY special, you can do it girl!! :D :D

    Just had a flash of inspiration - what about a harlequin centered on the geisha????? but hey what do I know, not having even finished one quilt yet tee hee!! :D :D

    I was actually thinking of squaring off the fabric so that I had 5 Geishas. That would leave the bottom one on it's on piece of fabric. Then Attic Window the BIG piece, and make a pillow out of the last Geisha.
    It would cut the bottom 2 Geishas at about the waist, but that' about all I can figure on cutting it. I'm actually scared to cut it. Not because of the cost, but because it's so pretty.

    Chele....Not MY fault you bought. You just have good taste like me! :)
    I'm thinking of ordering 48" more in the burgandy and 48 " in the black. Not sure...still up in the air on that. I do have my order from Joanns coming in, not that any of the fabric that I ordered will match it.
    Have you gotten yours yet???

    I have a few pieces that I have bought that I'm afraid to cut. Not only because it's so pretty, but because of the price I paid. Sometimes I just pay WAAAY too much for the fabric, but it's one of those....I GOTTA HAVE IT!!

    Tirni:
    You fabric is so, so pretty. When I was in the city a couple weeks ago I shopped at a Fabric Depot store and they had lots of Oriental Fabric just like yours in the different colors. They had one of Mt. Vasuvius in the background with the Geisha in the foreground in pale orange & coral colors that was absolutely smashing. My DSIL bought a couple pieces to make a wall hanging for her DDIL who has gone with the Oriental decor in the master bedroom. I can't wait to see what you do with your fabric.

    I was so hoping these were actually panels and not just the length of the fabric. Good thing I ordered the 48 inches instead of the 24.
    I'm probably going to order a couple more sections of 48, but going to get in touch with a friend of mine who is getting a stash ready to send to me and see if she can find the fabric near her house.
