Chinese New Year Celebration Sale Feb. 1 to 19

“Gong Hey Fat Choy”  

Happy Chinese New Year! 

February 19th 2015

Chinese Symbol for Happy Chinese New Year (恭禧發財)

brown tree chinese

The most common Chinese ways of saying Happy New Year are Gong Xi Fa Cai(Mandarin) and Gong Hey Fat Choy (Cantonese). Even though the pronunciations are a little different, both are written the same.

Ever since I was young I have been fascinated by the Far East.  I used to go with my Mother to visit “artsy” Lila L.  She had her hair bound up with chopsticks and black lacquered furniture inlaid with Mother of Pearl.  Chinatown was my favorite place to eat and I loved getting those prize balls at the gift shop and unwrapping yards of paper strips to find the tiny toys inside.

Little did I know I would “marry” into the army and live in the Orient. This amazing experience has increased my delight in all those memories and many new ones; like the Chinese Lion dance (always thought I’d draw this but haven’t yet!) , Sizzling Rice Soup and playing the Kayagum (like Koto).  Subsequently I’ve drawn a number of popular Chinese inspired patterns. I’ll include Japan and Indonesia too! So for the New Year I’m passing along the celebration to you!

Chintz & India Borders and Corners

YES, TWO PATTERNS IN ONE!

These unique border patterns with South Asian Elegance will add a decorative finish to your quilts.
“Chintz Border” is the companion piece to MeadowLyon’s Interlocking “Chintz” pantograph. The inner border measures 4.5-inches and the complete border with both edgings measures 7-inches.
“India border” measures 6-inches wide and matches the Indian Pantograph.

Chintz (from the plural of chint) was originally glazed calico textile, specifically those imported from India, printed with designs featuring flowers and other patterns in different colors, typically on a light, plain background. In India, these fabrics were known as cint in Hindi, a word derived from the Sanskrit word citra, which means “variegated.” One major center of production for these fabrics was Calicut, which loans its name to “calico.”

Cactus Flower 2 rows 6.5 Interlocking

This pretty pattern has 2 rows of 6.5 inches.  It’s so easy to adjust for the length of your quilt with these smaller double rows.  There’s also a little Cactus Wren for you to insert as desired.

I can just picture that wonderful “hot” fushia color of cactus flowers.  No wonder Mexican art is so bright and vivid.  They’re inspired by the bright colors of the desert flowers.  Watch out! Don’t touch those prickly little needles.

Java Batik Border 5″ Border Pattern 5″ Edge-to-Edge

Tonight a friend of mine from Indonesia came over and I showed her my new pattern.  “Oh, the name of this flower in Java is Kembang Kenanga,” she exclaimed.   How fun to know the real name and that it was recognizable!  (It translates to Kenanga Flower.  In Bali it is called Padma.  Yes, all you Star Wars Fans – Padma was not a new name.)

Laguna de Cancun 5″ Edge-to-Edge

Laguna de Cancun 5″ roll pattern with 2″ Mayan Wave sashing

Laguna de Cancun comes from the Izapa Stele #25 with addition of a fish design from a pottery artifact and a turtle from Mayan hieroglyphs. Just like hotel murals on the Mayan Riviera, these stylized fish swim directly out of the Izapa Stele #25. Even the waves are part of the original design chiseled hundreds of years ago in Central America. Inspiration from a long pottery fish and hieroglyph turtle add variety to this easy pattern.

With Laguna de Cancun comes Mayan Wave, a flowing textile design found on painted vases and architectural trim of the period.

Portico Blooms 4 1/2″ Edge-to-Edge

2 Rows of 4 inch stitching make this pattern perfect for short-arm or domestic machines.  Isn’t it great that 2 little rows make a big design?

Portico Blooms is a stylized flower found in Mayan textile decoration, Mayan hieroglyphs, and also as painted architectural décor on Aztec porches.

While we imagine bougainvillea spilling over the porch roofs in Central America, the ancient artisans painted these blooms along the pillars of these very porches and in their architectural murals. Although the design is hundreds of years old it complements bright modern piecing.

Ming Sea 6″ Border Pattern

Ming Sea is part of the Chinese Porcelain Series and designed to compliment the Oriental designs.  Included are Ming Sea  6″ with two types of corners.  Also, on the same roll is a delightful oriental cloud design called Mandarin Wind 4″  which can be used as Edge to Edge for a short-arm machine.

The design for Ming Sea was derived from the porcelain border on a plate of the Ming Dynasty.  It looks in place with our other Chinese patterns as shown here.

Ming Sea also looks great as a border with the Dragon patterns.  I’ve posted a layout suggestion here, using: Dragon Riders  #1713-11;  Dragons Galore  #1600-11;  Dragon Sky  #1601-11; Dancing Princesses-Castle Fantasy;  Samurai blocks   – by special request;  Ming Sea  #1507-6.

Jungle Foliage 6″ Border Pattern

Several years ago I decided to make a quilt for an Indonesian friend.  (See the whole story on the link to Indonesian Puppets)  I decided to draw a 6″ pattern of foliage to separate the rows of puppets from each other.  Since then I’ve used it for many things including 3 additional Indonesian puppet quilts.  It also works well with both the Rainforest 11″  pictogram and Jungle 11″ pictogram.  When I need just a little more to fill out a quilt, I use this very versatile 6″ pattern.  It also works well as an Edge to Edge for mid-arm machines and is great for a simple border.

In the Doghouse 6″ Pictogram

In the Doghouse 6″ border pattern with accompanying sashing patterns: Dog Bones 2″ and Pawprints 2 1/2″  It can serve as a border for the Dawgs pictogram or can be used as E2E to cover an entire quilt.

This pattern is 6″ wide with no repeats.

The distinctive feature of a Pictogram is that it’s a pantograph with NO repeats.  It’s a complete 12′ roll comprised of 4 panels of 3′ each, all “hooked” together. I’ve added a dotted line at each 36″ section. While they can be stacked up as shown in the picture, they can also be quilted like an E2E or B2B giving lots of pictorial subject matter to your quilt.

To avoid placing an animal or image on top of itself all the way down the quilt I recommend starting at a different 36″ division for each “pass.” After starting, continue quilting through as many sections as needed for that row. You won’t have to stop – the line is continuous. For a full sized quilt I might make 7-8 rows, starting at various sections of the panto.

For alignment help see the “Tips” section.

Happy Chinese New Year – Gong Hey Fat Choi

I love Chinese New year time.  I remember visiting Lila Lawrence with my mother when I was a child.  She had Oriental furniture inlaid with mother of pearl and wore chopsticks in her hair. When we went to China Town in Los Angeles I would get those little prize balls that would unwind spilling little rings, and other treasures.

A few years ago when the catastrophic earthquake hit China I decided to draw a Pantograph with Pandas – “Panda-Bamboo” was what I called it. when I made the quilt I “Top-liqued” pandas right into the stitching line.

Living in the orient we enjoyed the fireworks and celebrations.

 

I decorate my little brown “year-round” tree with Chinese things and serve Oriental food.      Try this easy recipe. 

“ISAN PORK” FROM SISTER AWE

2 lbs. thinly slice pork, cut bite sized ( OR saute ground pork)

Simmer the pork in lightly salted water until tender.  Drain and place in bowl.  Sprinkle with juice of 1 – 1 ½ fresh limes. (I used 1 ½ good sized ripe limes) 

Stir in 3 Tb. Fish sauce. Add 1 tsp Rot Dii (This is a Thai seasoning containing MSG.  I used ½ tsp. MSG with about 1/8 teaspoon white pepper and 1 tsp garlic juice.) Stir well.  Taste the liquid to see if you like the blend.

Add ¼ c. chopped cilantro, 3 Tb. Green onions, ½ c. thinly sliced red shallots, Crushed red pepper to taste – I used about ½ tsp. and it wasn’t hot at all.

To serve, sprinkle with cilantro and “Rice Dust,” – browned glutinous rice, crushed****(  Place 2 Tb. Uncooked glutinous rice in dry frying pan.  Brown the rice, stirring constantly.  Allow to cool and crush well, or put it in a blender like I did.  I should not become like flour – just like rough corn meal so it remains a little crunchy.  This adds an important flavor.)Serve with sticky rice, chopped cucumber, diced, garlic and green mango slices. Wrap them up in green leaf lettuce and dash with Thai Sweet Chili sauce.       

  Happy Chinese New Year!
