These are the Japanese fabrics that I bought while away on holidays...
I've been drafting up a quilt in my head, I know exactly what I want to do, and need to get working on it real soon.
I think it will have some CQ on it but not as much as I would normally do.
Many of you would know, I really love all things Victorian, so this quilt is really going to be out of my comfort zone, but I feel I need to challenge myself a bit at this point and try something different and new.
This first lot of fabrics that I've scanned are all cotton and bought at a couple of different craft shops.
This piece on the right is a silk Obi I bought for for $35, that's the sash that they wear around their waist, I unpicked it to use in the Japanese quilt I've been inspired to make...there is 5 metres of fabric in it, only 15 inches wide, as that is the width of their fabric, and their fabric was selling at $15 metre, so I did get a good buy for that money.
I think this piece will tie in all the other pieces together and compliment the quilt beautifully
I'm off to make a start stitching..
