P1020132II took me 18 months to complete this quilt, from the day I purchased the pattern until the day I finished the binding. Hanaleah helped me pick out the fabrics. the theme is  Japanese prints. I quilted it myself on the longarm at Cotton Cupboard, my favorite Quilt Shop In Lakeway, TX. The quilt is for John and my bed.

Absolutely beautiful. A wonderful accomplishment.

Thanks Cynthia.

This quilt is stunning. Even before I looked at the large size or read your notes, I looked at the quilt and saw a complex and beautiful soji screen. The Japanese influence is heightened by the choice of fabrics, so give my compliments to Hanahleah.

Sara, my parents had soji’s in our home separating the living room and den that could be opened for large gatherings. I never knew how to spell soji til you wrote it.

Absolutely stunning – worth every minute of those 18 months (777,600 minutes, by my calculation). Enjoy your new bedroom!

Comment by Lynn Wallisch

Yay! I’m really happy with how it came out. What does dad think?

Comment by Hanaleah

You need to get some new darker sheets (brown?) to match though.

Comment by Hanaleah

Beautiful — good job

Comment by Cory

Absolutely stunning! I am so impressed. Can I order one? If I may, I agree with Hanaleah’s suggestion about the sheets

Comment by Cheryl Hazeltine

thank you for the compliment but I only make them as gifts . They take a ton of time.

Susan: I just now saw this, wow! I didn’t even know you quilted. Is there anything you don’t do, with class and beauty?
