Ah, the Orient!

I finished the back for my Oriental Lanterns quilt. I used leftovers from the front and two yards of this blue "eternity" fabric. Hoop-de-doo! Now I can send it on to Quilt Diva Yuki. It's way too big for my humble machine. Besides which, she does an amazing job as opposed to my merely adequate work. I'm even sending binding fabric so she can attach the binding for me. (But I'll hand-sew it down. I like that part.)

It's going to be glorious on my DD's bed!

To the right are close-ups of the fabrics I used. I really like the dragon fabric. It's just right for her.

While we were on vacation in Texas, we went to a little town called Bandera. I was poking around in a shop and my DH surprised me: he found a quilt shop! Was I surprised! Well, I couldn't disappoint him by leaving with no fabric, could I? That would be ungrateful! So I made the supreme sacrifice and purchased these lovely fabrics.
