    Quilt top made today from oriental fabrics

    Justflyingin posted a thread today or yesterday asking if anyone remembered a particular quilt. A member found it on The Quilt Haus site. I have had this piece of oriental fabric (almost a yard) for a couple of years and just hated to cut it up. When I saw this pattern I thought it would work very well. Haven't decided on the border yet, maybe just a scrappy strip using all the colors in the fabric with the aqua for binding.

    What a great idea - sometimes fabric should not be cut up into smaller pieces and that one is definitely one of those. Well done.

    I haven't finished it yet, and because I am using scraps for the background I'm not sure of the finished size. Believe it will be approximately 5' square.

    What a nice easy way to make a quilt! I love Asian themed fabrics.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I think it's a pattern shown on Robert Kaufman's web site. It's called Shenandoah. It's what they call a "Designer Pattern," thus not available for print instructions. Can be purchased, I think, from
    www.creativesewlutions.com - actually you can probably just click this web site to see the border treatment.
    It's worth a look to see how a border is done on it.

    I have admired this pattern before and was in fact going to try to make my own. This turned out great! How big is the one you made?

    I want to make a quilt for my sister's wedding - and have a really pretty piece of Hawaiian print fabric that I'd hate to cut up since it's so pretty - this might be a good way to go!
    Thanks for sharing - yours is really pretty - and I love your koi fabric!
