1. I have received numerous email inquiries regarding the black/white stripe fabric I so often use for quilt binding here at RPQ:
It is certainly no secret and I am happy to share with you that this fabric is a print by the Japanese manufacturer Lecien. The fabric selvedge doesn't provide much more information that just that:
I have lucky to find this stripe fabric at my local fabric store (GJ Discount Fabrics) as well as at times at Purlsoho, or at various Etsy Stores (search Supplies for "lecien stripe"). There are several substitute fabrics including Robert Kaufman Clown Stripe which is a wider stripe but more readily available.
2. My lastest quilt pattern ~ Quilter's Palette Quilt Pattern (pdf format) is now also available from The Fat Quarter Shop as an instant download pattern:
And last ~ Wishing all of my fellow Aussie readers, at home and abroad, a wonderful day
as we celebrate everything that's great about Australia.
Happy Australia Day!
