Size 40" w X 47" h


Artist Comment/Statement:  The pre-printed fabric with the lovely geisha ladies called to me to create a wall hanging. I wanted to create movement within the piece using light colors and dark colors.  As I struggled putting the binding on the piece, the geisha ladies told me the piece didn't need a binding; so I used the "pillowcase" method instead of a binding to finish the piece.  The geishas are smiling!

Techniques:  Pieced and quilted by machine. The appliqued flowers were fused on and then embellished by machine with rayon thread.  The purple border is 1/4" flat-fold fabric piping inserted into the seams.

Materials:  Fabrics used were Japanese Yukata cottons and other commercial cottons.  Rayon, cotton and monofilament/nylon threads were used for the machine quilting and machine embroidery.  Polyester batting was used.
