As promised, some of the lovely textiles purchased from Kazari – these are all remnants of Kimono fabrics, or pieces from old garments. I’m going to be doing an online class with Jude Hill in a couple of week’s time, and plan to use them for that. First the silks…….the silver bit is heavily embroidered with silver metallic thread, on the edge of a heavy cream piece.
Some of the silks had wonderful textural designs woven into the fabric like damask, which don’t show up in the group photos. Next the cotton ones, some of which are indigo dyed.
This one even has some mending….my own little piece of boro noragi
Some of you may know I have a thing about owls….this came from the other shop I mentioned in the previous post – Flashback Fabrics. Not sure what it will become yet.
And finally – a while back I joined ALQS4, organised by Kate in the UK, for which I made this 16 inch square quilt which has not yet reached its destination in Texas.
Today I received my quilt, which was quite high on my list of preferences, so I was very pleased. Made by Judith in the UK, it is called Last Leaves Standing. Judith said she hoped it would not make me feel too cold…..she does not know where I live and how cold it can be here! Isn’t it great!
