I look forward to starting this. I too,would like the measurement on this so I may adapt to my needs. I saw that some people were,rude. I hate that for you. It is uncalled for.

I have all my fabrics together, I'm still a learning, so does anybody know if the seam allowances are included in the listed measurements, or should I add an extra 1/4" to the cutting instructions? Does anybody know the measurements of the finished quilt?

I found all the fabrics except Script allover. What are the measurements after finishing?

If finding material is a problem, try online fabric site. My go to site is fabric.com.

I would love to be able to obtain some of the above Japanese fabric but do not know where to purchase them from. I live in Central Engand and there are not so many outlets for fabrics as when I was young. Thank you for any advice you can give me. I am not so young, nor mobile but would be grateful to know if there is a website - thank you. (C>C United Kingdom)

I RECENTLY CUT OUT MY GORGEOUS JAPANESE FABRICS IN SQUARES AND RECTANGLES TO PREVENT CUTTING THROUGH BEAUTIFUL JAPANESE SCENES WHICH I LIKE TO LEAVE INTACT. THIS PATTERN IS PERFECT FOR A WALLHANGING TO MATCH MY BED QUILT UTILIZING SCRAPS FROM MY QUILT FABRICS. MY FABRICS ARE IN PINKS, BURGUNDIES, GREENS, AND GOLDS, WITH TOUCHES OF BLACK.

What a FANTASTIC pattern!!! I'm new to quilting, and this pattern is just the thing to push my creativity. I think it'd be a great way to use up some tiny pieces I have left over from some other projects. Thank you!!
