Bloggers' Quilt Festival!

I'm so tickled to be a part of this year's Bloggers' Quilt Festival!  My entry was done in Outer Mongolia (literally!  --read on).  This quilt is one of my favorite recent projects that I named "Renegade Geisha's" --renegade because two of the geisha's don't conform to the rest (mainly because I ran out of coordinating fabrics!).  Can you find the two renegades?  ;)  The quilt incorporates fabric origami and the quilt itself is from  Fantastic Fabric Folding  --many projects from this book were a big hit with the Mongolian class pictured below.

Due to my husband's work, we live in Mongolia; and I was privileged to teach classes at a local quilting studio.  I've included a picture of the class where we were working on the geisha blocks.  The students spoke almost no English and I speak what I call Monglish--a lot of English sprinkled with Mongolian.  Regardless, we all had a blast!  ...and, I'm very pleased with this quilt of mine!

I love your Geisha quilt, and your students all look really proud of their blocks.

Hi Laurie.
Your quilt looks great. I love what you have done with the fabric folding. Great colours, too.
Wonderful to see the class and their work. Hope you have many more opportunities to do the same!
