    I joined several months ago but, have been so busy looking at all the beautiful quilt that I've never got around to uploading any of mine. I love sewing but, quilting I've only been doing for about five years now. 98 % of my quilts are from just getting books and studying and taking the plunge and hoping it turns out the way I want it to. You could say I'm a jack of all trades but a master of none. I'm hoping this picture goes through. This quilt is one that I'm making up as I go. It started out to be a wall hanging and I just kept adding on.

    Your quilt is simply jaw-dropping gorgeous! I love oriental fabrics but your pattern and designs just made it a piece of art.

    Gorgeous quilt!! I love it!!! Were the Geisha's from a fabric or panel or did you applique them on?

    Welcome to the board, by the way. I don't think you ever introduced yourself!

    The Oriental girls are embroidery designs from Hatched In Africa.
    I actually filled out my profile but it looks like it didn't go through.
    My name is Carolyn and I'm from Indiana. I sew, embroidery, quilt and oil paint. That's what I ment when I said I was a jack of all trades but a master of none. I like to try my had at every thing but then you fine you run out of time. I would like to say thanks for all the compliments.

    You embroidered the panels? I guess that counts me out making one! It is beautiful! I'm attempting to make a kimono quilt for my Japanese mother. She would lipids yours! I know I do!!

    Thank you, I'm so glad I joined this group. I've downloaded lots of pictures just so I could study the quilting that was done on them. I'm sure I'm going to learn alot from this group.
