I've just had one of my elderly customers in, she doesn't use the internet and as we were chatting over a coffee about about the quilt she's making, she brought up a book she's been looking for that she had years ago but lent out and it was never returned.

All I know about the book is; it's Chinese (may be Japanese) has the word treasures in the title, it's a quilting book and has a lady on the front cover. I don't know if it's a picture/drawing or a quilt. I told her I would do my best to find the book for her and was wondering if anyone else could give it a go?

She absolutely lovely, has had a tough few months with a fall she had and I know if we find the book she'll be so happy.

Probably not this but worth a look maybe?

Not sure if helpful but there is a type of Japanese fabric used in quilting called "shippou-tsunagi" (seven treasures)....

Couldn't find her but I think her car is parked outside so shall keep an eye on it and hopefully we've found it. Hoping for no customers and it's her car

I've only found these but these are more patchwork than quilting
