I pulled out a project that I started on last year. I ADORE Japanese art and when I found a Lonni Rossi panel titled Ginkgo Godesses in a quilt shop, I had to have it right then! There are three godesses per panel, so I decided to give each one the atributes of an element. I dug through my hand dyed fabric stash and gave them each a beautiful new kimono and a sparkly crown. I even fussy cut out some foliage for their Ginkgo accessories.

Here is what they started out as


And here is how they all look now

Earth


Wind


Fire


On Wind I went over the seams with a black pen to hide the white spaces peeking out from between the pieces and to add back in the lines in the folds. I haven't done that yet on the other two. They will eventualy have a narow red border and a wide black border added to the outside edges to frame them for becoming wall hangings. I am going to purchase another one of these panels, plus some Geisha panels that are being released this spring for some further experamentation Grin

Thank you so much!!  I adore these Ladies Cheesy

mrgrita - The Ladies are 9 1/2"W x 29"L, with a black border of about a couple inches right now.  I am planning a 1/2" black border, 1/2" red border and a 2" black border when they are all finished.

The panels can be purchased at https://shop.aveight.com/lonnirossi/2store/2store.html

oh. my. god. you are a goddess for making these. LOL they are GORGEOUS! I simply don't understand how these are quilted. How do you do the lines? Are those the seams? I realllly want these.. would it be a bad idea to start quilting using these panels?  Cheesy

The pieces are appliqued to the original panel.  I haven't completely finished the embelisment and quilting yet.  They looked so cool, I just couldn't wait to get all the fiddly details done.  Right now they are just tops, but will eventually be quilted wall hangings.

I'm seriously considering buying the panels. The site was a bit confusing. Is it $7 for each panel or for all three? By the way, how does one applique?  Smiley Thanks for your help! Yours are stunning.

p.s. I hit this rocks too!
