4 1/2 Feet x 5 Feet

This quilt was my 2006 entry into the Hoffman Quilt Quest Contest.
I worked on this quilt at the same time I worked on my Asian Secret quilt. At the time I thought each quilt would come together quicker if I used the same artwork (Clip Art from Design Source Books) so I layed them out side-by-side.
Laying them out was quick, but each quilt sewed out differently. This one gave me trouble from the start. The other was a breeze!
I even had to send my machine in for service just days before the deadline! I had to finish the quilting and sew on the border with my none-to-powerful beginner machine!
I learned my lesson and now I work on them one-at-a-time!

Detail of Border, Hair and Beaded Tassels
The borders I digitizes for this quilt can be found on the Fan Borders Embroidery page.
I digitized Asian redwork designs from my sketches to use as quilt stitches.
I scattered the orchids, peacocks,dragons and Asian symbols throughout the background and then free-style quilted around these stitch-outs.
The red-work quilt designs can be found on the Redwork Embroidery pages of my site.
I made the flowers for her hair by sewing together silk fabric petals and then sewing them into place.

Detail of Peacock Fan
The peacock and feathers I used created for the fan Birds Embroidery page of my Embroidery Designs!

I stitched the feathers onto tulle and then sewed them into place.
Because my Viking had to go in for service, I was unable to sew the hand down smoother. My beginner machine just didn't have the power to do the job.
