A bundle of Japanese fabric arrived this week from Miss Matatabi. Most of the fabrics in this bundle are either by popular Japanese textile designers Suzuko Koseki or Atsuko Matsuyama, all featuring text, and all are excellent quality quilting cottons with a lovely soft hand.

Both these text fabrics - Flour Sack and Newsprint by Suzuko Koseki - are smaller scale reprints of previously released fabrics by Suzuko. The text on the Newsprint fabric is tiny and reading it does test my eyesight, but makes for a great background fabric.

30's Collection - Sweet Recipe by Atsuko Matsuyama for Yuwa
Suzuko Koseki and Atsuko Matsuyuma fabrics available from:
Miss Matatabi (Etsy) - be sure to also check out the clearance section. 40% off everything in the clearance section. Whilst stocks last.
|Picadilly by DS Fabrics for Fabric Traditions|
Also arriving this week is the new collection by DS Fabrics (Denyse Schmidt) ~ Picadilly in a blue/green color palette made available only from Spotlight Stores in Australia. Good news for Australian quilters and sewists, not so good for everyone else! The blues and greens are vibrant and the quality of the fabrics is good; I certainly wouldn't hesitate to use these fabrics in my quilts. How good is that green?
