    They are so pretty! If you use them in a quilt, how do you clean it? Would it be washable?

    Very pretty! Did you use cotton fabrics? They look like silk...

    If they were in a quilt it would probably be one that wouldn't be washed though I don't see why it couldn't be. There's nothing holding them in shape other than how it's folded and they are sewn down. The book has them as individual quilted blocks and wall hangings.

    It's cotton fabric with a smooth feel and metallic threads in it.

    :-) I have about 3 dozen CDs to make some pin cushions with and I cut a cardboard circle as a template for them so that I could do them quickly. They are so simple to make with just crazy piecing, cut out the circle, and put them around the CDs.

    Oh, Pam, these are so beautiful. I gotta get that book, my son in Japan would dearly love some sort of quilt incorporating these!

    Thanks for showing us your goodies. I love Asian fabrics, but have none in my stash. Think I'll have to remedy that problem and thanks for the websites, ruth.

    Look at Pauline Insene floral inspirations or just her books. The heirloom quilt book uses one of those shapes as a centre for one of her blocks. Her other books are 3d flowers. Those who went to NEC Birmingham UK 2010 and 2011 she won top show. I think there are 3 books .
