    Thanks Cordelia, this is just the best site. Glad Izy introduced me to it. I am so enjoying looking at all the different varieties there are and they are just works of art.

    Hi there, Thanks for the lovely comment. I got this from Cotton Patch UK. They have a large shop I think in Birmingham England. Very helpful and very quick delivery. Here in Spain sometimes delivery takes a long time seems to go via Japan...LOL anyway they have another on there site I feel sure. This one was called the Autumn Geisha and there are 3 others to choose from. Tell me how you go and if you canīt find it I will look for you, I am an avid surfer... Good Luck

    PS to my last post. The dress or Kimono is tricky just a word of warning. I have done a lot of sewing (dresses etc,) this was my first panel, and I had to lay out the pattern very carefully to get it all out. Okay

    Very pretty!! If there are "faults" as you put it...I don't see a one of them!!! As we say here on QB, "no quilt police here"...
    It looks like you have put a lot of work into it, as well...Great job!
