Sunday Stash #200 Kiki Parfait and DS Quilts - Croquet

Kiki Parfait
When looking at what fabric is out there and deciding what I should add to my fabric stash (and I find myself being more and more selective) I not only look for great designs and colors but also for fabrics that are unique.  This collection is Kiki Parfait and is from the Japanese textile house Dyesan (100% lightweight cotton). I am rather taken with the delicate and detailed designs and the splashes of color.  The quality of the fabric is much like standard quilting cotton, perhaps a little finer (higher thread count) and suitable for more than just quilting.



The Kiki Parfait Collection is available from MissMatatabi (Etsy Store) and for disclosure purposes I purchased some of these fabrics myself and was sent several complimentary designs without any obligation. All text, images, and opinions expressed are as always my own.

Today also ... 
Croquet by DS Quilts for Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts Stores in the USA



Oh Spotlight Stores - Australia, why did you stop stocking DS Quilts collections? ... we would have been there in droves to get our hands on these, even waited patiently in the cutting counter queue.  

With thanks to Monica in TX, USA who purchased and shipped this collection on my behalf. 

Enjoy Sunday!
