Here's the finished quilt top. The picture really doesn't do it justice, the colors are richer and prettier in person. I'm pleased with the way it turned out. I have so many scraps left I might just duplicate it for myself! I will machine quilt it sometime next week. I plan on using this metallic gold plaid for the binding.

This is the issue of the magazine that got me started collecting the Asian fabrics, AP&Q February 1997.

This is the project but looking at it again I realize I don't have nearly enough variety of lights to complete it. Asian lights seem to be hard to come by.

I'm off to St. Louis early on Thursday for Parents' Weekend at Washington University. Keep your fingers crossed for nice weather, see you next week!

Hi Marianne,

What a great quilt. It's gorgeous. Would be a great way to use up scraps too, I would think. How large is your starting square?

Happy Quilting,

Love the quilt...Great minds think alike. I am working on a quilt for my oldest daughter, using the Bento Box pattern and asian themed fabric.
I will try to post a picture soon to my blog.

Wonderful quilt! I too love Asian fabrics and yes you are right, light fabrics are hard come by.
