Here's the last quilt I made. It's unique in that the kimonos are

folded like in origami.

8. That is wonderful!

How long did it take? Did you fold the mini kimonos yourself?

I wish I could commission one. I lived in Japan for 2 years, and have very fond memories of my time there.

10. It went very fast. I found the pattern at a flea market for 50 cents at the end of May 2021.

It took me a month to pick out all the fabrics and accents. Each kimono only takes a 5" by 20" strip, with the obi and tails using a 5" by 12" strip. I folded all the kimonos and 'framed' the background pieces, sewed the rows, and quilted it by machine in 3 weeks.

22. It's refreshing to see . . .

. . . that someone knows how to hang a quilt correctly.

The quilt is gorgeous and looks perfect.


My wife is a hand quilter, every stitch by hand, learned quilting from her mother and the other ladies at her church in rural Alabama. Now, at age 80, with arthritic fingers, she's pretty much done quilting. She is a nut about quilts that are not hung correctly. If it's true that the one who dies with the most fabric is the winner, then, she's in first place.

25. Beautiful!

I love the piecing and the fabric/color choice on the kimonos. And the tiny dark borders around each kimono…very nice!

I am just cutting out a new lap quilt. Very modern, sort of row quilt, with only 3 fabrics. Very unlike me…I usually throw the kitchen sink at it. I actually dreamed the pattern I’m using one night.

I hope it turns out as pretty as yours.
