Oh Jill! I just love this quilt that you made for your friend. Great job! Jill lived in Tokyo and bought these wonderful fabrics while she was over there and turned them into a gorgeous quilt. The back is the most wonderful minky I have ever worked with. They have it over at Pacific fabrics and it comes in solids, prints, with the bumps or without. AND, it is 60 inches wide. It is just sooooo soft! We used wool batting and quilted Asian Fans in the outer border, dragonflys in the inner border and swirls allover in the middle. Hope you like it!
