    This is from the book called "Quilting with Japanese Fabrics" by Kitty Pippen. the pattern is not in the book only the picture which she has enlarged and gone from there.

    I would love to go to Spain to quilt. Though, I'd probably have to take something like a GFG. I wouldn't want to be cooped up inside. The scenery has got to be amazing there.

    Sometimes you would be really glad to stay indoors and its too hot too quilt especially July and august when it can reach 40C about 104F. Whats a GFG by the way???
