China

I need to find and prep more ties before I go any farther on that project. In the mean time, I pulled these out.

You may remember when Mr. Wonderful brought these fabrics back from China for me.

They are so beautiful and I want to be very careful about using them. I was paging through magazines and came across this one which has given me some ideas.

I love this idea.

And this one.

I love that these would showcase the fabric. I could also use every inch without wasting any. I have piles of books to look through yet, but these are my top picks for now.

Sometimes I find that I have to get a project out and put it away again a few times before I actually start cutting. That may happen here!

Have a great day!

    Either one would be a great use of the fabrics, but I really like the first one. I’m a child of symmetry. =)

    Hi Katy! Either would be a great choice to showcase these special fabrics, especially that one with the medallions. I look forward to seeing where these end up! I like to mull things over too, and make it my own. Happy Wednesday to you! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. These are gorgeous! The chrysanthemum print looks Japanese to me, but I am not up on my Asian fabrics. I really think these would be spectacular in that Endless Summer pattern. Have fun!

    Love the second pattern. Either one you choose will complement the beautiful fabric.

    My daughter brought me fabric from India and I felt the same way! It was just one piece, but I put other fabrics with it and I love how it turned out. That is the best thing folks could give me!

  6. I do the same thing, take it out, put it away. It’s like a brewing process. Eventually it becomes a quilt!

    Visually going with Endless Summer IMHO. So very striking-susan
