Sunday Stash #203 - Nesshome Fabrics

I like fabric. A lot. You probably already new that.  But I really like fabric that is bright, colorful and a little different.  So when I saw these fabrics by Nesshome they were ordered and promptly arrived on my doorstep.  Thank you, online shopping!

Nesshome - Tulip Festival
Nesshome is a Korean brand with both a Korean and a Japanese website, both languages with which I am not familiar and so my information about these fabrics is limited. The fabrics pictured are all a medium weight fabric - 55% linen and 45% - extra wide 55 inches, and with a pretty selvage. The above pictured fabric (Tulip Festal) features squares each measuring 3 inches and I image would look great as a whole or fussy cut in a project.

Nesshome - Flowers Chatting
The second fabric - Flowers Chatting - is again a cheater print with squares measuring up to 4 inches x 4 inches. This size is perfect for fussy cutting and combining with other prints.  And look how many different floral designs! 

Nesshome - Flower Feedsack Panel
The third fabric is a panel of eight different flower feedsack prints with each print measuring 15.5 inches x 13.5 inches.  Again I love the variety of designs and the saturated colors.  

Even though these fabrics are somewhat heavier than standard quilting cotton I look forward (and won't hesitate) to incorporate these designs in my quilts.  Different fabric weights can and do play nicely together.

Thank you for stopping by,
Rita

  1. These fabrics are different and colourful! I love them especially 'flowers chatting' I like to think that happens in my garden.

  2. I believe linen often shrinks on washing - shall you prewash them first?

    1. Thank you for stopping by Karen! I think I will test wash - I purchased 2 panels of the third fabric and will wash one panel and compare with the unwashed panel. I'll document the results here.

  3. Wouldn't those fussy cuts look lovely in a cathedral window? And the Flowers Chatting fabric could just be quilted on its own and call it a day!

  8. Love the fabrics, I've purchased from Hong Kong before and the fabric is always great quality. I've popped onto the etsy shop and will spend more time there later today:)
    The shipping costs for me in the Uk are very reasonable sooo my finger may just 'slip' to the buy button. Thanks for sharing.

  13. I love these fabrics - when I saw this post I'd already ordered a metre of the Flowers Chatting cheater from Frances, and I've just quilted it in to a very lazy baby quilt... the different prints and colours are gorgeous. I think sometimes in cheater cloths the individual prints aren't that great, but in that one pretty much every print could be a stand-alone fabric. And the linen content gives a really lovely weight to the fabric.
