Identifying a Design

Several years ago, I started this wall hanging and now I can’t find my book. The plan is for me to finish this to hang in the upcoming quilt expo in Ponchatoula, LA next month.

I’d like to be able to credit the designer so I’m asking for your help. I’m pretty sure it came from “Asian Elegance” by Kitty and Sylvia Pippen. If you have this book, please take a look for me and let me know. I need to know what the actual design is called and verify that the chinese symbol is “love”. I know that as soon as I post this, I’ll probably find my book but please look for me anyway. 🙂

    You are right. Page 30 From Asia with Love by Kitty Pippen. She used 6″ mosaic squares made up of Japanese silk scraps to go around the 12″ square with the Chinese character for love appliqued on it. I like the fabric that you have used around your square.

      Thanks so much, Carol! I added a border to it and have it on the frame right now. I’ll include the info on the label. If you’ll send me your snail mail address, I’ll send you 4 Oriental FQ’s from my stash for being the first to answer. Here’s my addy. Leave out the 7’s.

    I have the book in front of me as I type. The one in here that looks like yours is called From Asia withLove and is by Kitty Pippen. It says that the symbol in the center is the character for love.
