Asian Lily Quilt

For quilt guild this month we had a workshop on the Asian Lily pattern. It looks like this when pieced: Then, with some tricky curved folding and top-stitching...

Voila! You have the Asian Lily. I like it because it has a slight flavor of Hawaiian style quilting.

This is turning out to be one of my favorite quilts I've made so far.

wow, that's beautiful.
So you piece it with the angular pieces and then fold and top-stich to make the curves?
i think those colors are perfect for the pattern.

That is amazing. When you can make quilts like that, who cares if you eat green beans or not!

I'm not into the flowery patterns usually, but I like this one. Good job too, it looks awesome.

Sheesh, Jen. You are light years beyond what I'm able to quilt. Kudos for your continued excellence!

Brittany said...

That is amazing. I'll have to get the details from you on how you made that. It's pretty cool.

Is this a close-up of just one square? I don't know too much about quilting....

Jen said...

Yes, Angela, it's squares folded in half and sewn on top of other squares. Then the long side of the triangles are fold/curved out and topstitched down.

Jesse, yes, the pattern calls for six of these blocks arranged in two rows of three. So far I have assembled all the blocks but only top-stitched one.
