   Back sometime last year, me and my friend took a mini-quilt lesson on some of our free time.  Anyhow, I sewed up this asian inspired quilt. If anybody wants a tutorial just say the word. Sorry for the pictures, I took them while the quilt was wrinkly from being in my closet.  Roll Eyes The squares are also a little uneven. oops. Wink

^ Hah, dont ask. I called myself pocohantas during the 4 weeks I was there, and my friend was Amanada the great. We acted up a little bit.  Tongue

*EDIT*
The pictures were down for a while. I accidentaly deleted all of my photobucket, and my craftster pictures were on there. I re-loaded them on.

Yes! Love this! This would be so very happy on my bed. Do tell how you made it. It looks like a relatively simple pattern, and I'm getting ready to branch out from from 6" square rut. Also, I have a bunch of Asian-inspired fabric (in browns, oranges, teals, and pinks) that I want to use next quilt.

oh hell yes! this is what I'm doing for my next project!!

equilter.com has a great selection of Asian inspired fabrics too.

What's so great about this design is you can totally rely on the gorgeousness of the fabrics and keep it simple. oooooohhhhh.

Thanks for the inspiration!!

Thanks for all the comments...heres the tutorial.

Materials
-A total of 9 fabric patterns, in 3 diffrent colors. (in other words...3 red colored fabrics (obviously..3 diffrent prints..same colors, 3 black...and 3 red) Or whatever colors you want.)
-Backing fabric. (In my quilt, I used one of the red ones I used for the front.)
-Batting
- Border fabric.

This was really simple to make...so bear with me as I try to explain the easiest thing ever Grin

NOTE- I DONT EXACTLY REMEMBER ANY OF MY MESURMENTS, OR WHATNOT, SO YOU MIGHT HAVE TO ESTIMATE, BUT YOU CAN USE HOW MANY, OR HOW BIG OF SQUARES Roll Eyes

1) Cut all of the fabrics into strips that are...oh...say...*whips out ruler* 4x12 (I certainly dont remember what I used, sorry) Im not sure howmany strips you will need. I know this makes it super unclear, but you might need to get that old caculator out and try to figure this out. Ill try to help you with your questions, once I get it figured out.

2) Take all of the 3 red colors, and sew them like this :

3) Do the same for your 2 other colors.

4) Press the seams of all of the strips with an iorn, so all of the seams are facing one way

5) Depending on the width of your strips when all 3 of them are sewed togeather, take that mesurment, and cut all of the strips to make squares.

6) Lay all of your squares out, so they form a pattern. You can use the pattern I used, or you could make your own.

7) Sew the blocks by rows.

Cool When you have all of the rows, press the back of the seams so that they all go in one direction (only your new seams need to be in one direction, not the ones you did in the beginning, when you sewed all the colors togeather, obviously.

9) Sew all of the rows togeather

10) Press the back of the seams so that they all go in one direction)

11) Now we do the border. The border in my quilt is what the black fabric with the chinese writing.

12) Depending on what size you want your border to be, cut strips the length of your quilt. Mkae sure the strips are longer than the aqtual quilt, for seam allowances.

13) Sew the strips onto your quilt like this: Then press all the seams with an iorn so they go in 1 direction.

14) Now, Measure your quilt all around the sides, and cut a piece of fabric that exact size for the back of your quilt.

15) Cut a piece of batting, that is also the size of the quilt.

16) Sew them all insided out, like in this picture. MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE ABOUT A 6 INCH PART UN-SEWED, SO YOU CAN TURN THE QUILT RIGHT SIDE OUT!!!!!!!!
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y92/roxiobabe711/quilttut.bmp

17) Turn the quilt right side out, and Hand stitch ( or machine stitch, whatever you prefer, and whatever method you prefer) the opening closed.

18) On a light setting, Iorn over all the quilt, to smooth it out. Dont make it too hot, or the batting will start to melt Wink

Alrighty...I hope all of this makes scence. Just ask me, and Ill be more that happy to clear it up. Im not too good with tutorials.  Kiss

Oh, I really love this.  I love the flickering quality that this sort of tone-on-tone project.

I'm working on something vaguely similar, although not with such a restrained palette:
