Irome Quilt for Kokka Fabric

Irome Half Rectangle Triangle Quilt by Red Pepper Quilts

It is Quilt Market time in Pittsburgh! I love to see what fabric collections are coming out in the next 6 months or so, and although I don't get to go I love to travel along in the virtual world via Instagram or Facebook with those quilters and quilts stores that do go.

(not pictured here are four ombre semi-solid fabrics,
several of which I have used in the making of my quilt. See pictures below).
But I did get to preview the new Kokka Fabric collection called Irome which will debut at Quilt Market (these fabrics were sent to me courtesy of Kokka Fabric). Irome consists of 24 fabrics and four color palettes that represent the seasons. There are six prints for each season ~ Spring, Autumn, Winter and Summer.

The colors are delightful and several of the designs are wonderfully delicate. I love that the collection consists of fabrics for all of the seasons but despite our Autumnal weather I was immediately drawn to the soft and gentle color palette, mixed with some highlights of bolder/brighter color.

The quilt design is simple (large scale Half Rectangle Triangles) which allows the patterns and the colors to feature. I have quilted the quilt with an all over 1 inch grid of intersecting lines, which adds interest and compliments both the design and the fabrics.

Irome is a quilting cotton weight collection, suitable for quilt making, but also apparel and other crafty projects. The fabrics have a lovely hand, the colors range from delicate to saturated, and the prints all work well together. My only fabric addition used in the making of this quilt is Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton in White.

I have made the binding for the quilt from some of the scrappy left over fabric pieces. Scrappy binding is a favorite and I love to see all of the different patterns and colors blending with the quilt. It also makes me feel good to use up fabric scraps.

    1. I have a rough estimate for this fabric collection to start arriving in in Miss Matatabi's Store in July, and in stores outside of Japan in August. I will keep this post updated as the information becomes available. Thank you for stopping by! :-)

  13. I love this quilt. It is so perfect, from the colour scheme, which lends itself perfectly to the HSRs, to the grid quilting.
