Well the 3rd quarter is almost over and I finally have my first FAL finish (here is a link back to my FAL wish list). It is a one-block-wonder that I started back in 2010. When I initially finished piecing it, it was too small for a queen and I didn’t like the fabric I had for the border so I just added it to my pile of UFOs and forgot about it. I pulled it out in January and added it to my 1st quarter FAL list It got carried forward to the 2nd and 3rd quarters before I managed to complete it.
I removed some of the blocks in the upper right hand quadrant of the quilt top and replaced them with the blue background fabric. I used appliqué and trapunto to show off the two beautiful geishas that were the stars of the OBW fabric.
I really like how the geisha faces made interesting blocks.
This is what the original fabric looked like. It was made up of two geishas, rose and purple irises and a water like background.
