Fabulous Fabric Friday and Japanese Fabric for Day 6

169 comments
Hello everyone. Your comments continue to delight, enlighten, and bury me! I am reading them all but I haven't quite found the time to comment back to everyone, but I know you will understand. This has been an insane week but incredibly fun. I am enjoying the party.

So today is FFF, my regular Friday feature. For today's featured giveaway I thought I would put together a charm square pack of some of my favorite fabrics from Japan. If you are a regular here you know I have a passion for vintage, novelty(especially kitchen) and just plain old "different" fabric.
Here are 40 different 5" squares of Japanese import fabrics that represent some I've been collecting for years now. There is no common color or theme. They are all just fabric that I like. I've been asked where do I get my fabric. If I am looking for something very specific I usually go to Etsy.com first. I like buying from independent sources. They have a search feature and you can find just about anything there. If I am just window shopping I search "Japanese fabric" in the supplies. I also have some other sources on my side bar. I'm sure most of you are familiar with those retailers. Of course the best deals are when they have sales. I rarely buy a large piece of fabric. I'd rather have smaller bits and more variety.Along with the charm pack is a Japanese Patchwork book. And yes, the instructions are all in Japanese - but I learn from pictures anyway so I've been able to get over that obstacle. However, keep in mind they make things very tiny in these books so often I enlarge projects to suit me. Below are just a few of the highlights from the book. Click to enlarge (I hope).


So people, you know what to do, leave a comment to enter for a chance to win today's little prize. Tomorrow is the last day. Next week I'll list the winners in order and they can choose their prizes in the order picked. Fun fun. I can hardly wait.

LydaBabes Going Ons!!!! said...

I love all those old fashion fabric also....I love the cutesy Japanese fabric. I guess living on the west coast help finding them. I've never seen any of those fabrics before only on your blog. But I love all their techs and such. You are such a neat finder of great things. I've been wondering where do the Japanese grow cotton and such for their material? And in Aussie where do they get material from.....questions guestions.....Lyda

Eileen said...

Your fabric finds simply are amazing. That is a skill in and of itself.. let alone making the wonderful things that you do. ☺ And you are making this one FUN week for all of us. Bless you Nanette.. ☺
I've never seen this book.. it is beautiful.

hetty said...

I love Japanese fabrics! I have never seen a Japanese pattern book, but I am sure they are delightful! You sure have been busy! But I guess that life in the hive!!!

Poerava said...

Oh! I have been wanting to try a japanese pattern book for a while now.
All your prizes are awesome, if I win I am never going to be able to choose.
Thanks for the give-away.

Natalija said...

40 different Japanese fabrics? I'd be more than happy to win :)
Good luck to everyone!

Trisha said...

Who doesn't love (or need) more fabric? Your charm pack looks wonderful and what a fun book!

sallgood said...

I love scrappy quilts, so these fun fabrics would be a great addition to a future project or two! I missed yesterday- wish I had checked your blog out because we have a new grandbaby due in May!

Sandy said...

What a neat charm pack. I love the variety of prints. Thanks for sharing and have a very Merry Christmas.

Carrie P. said...

Wow, Wow,Wow. This is a fantastic giveaway today. I love charms. I just posted a picture of my years worth from a exchange that I was in.

Terri S said...

I've been discovering the joy of working with charms recently after getting a package as a gift. I'm hooked!! What a nice giveaway.

Patricia said...

I love the fabric!!!! Your celebration has been so fun. Keep up the good work. You make my day.

Love, Tricia

Sandi said...

Oh, wow, 40 fabrics! Did I read that right? That would be so much fun to have a bit of all the great fabrics you use in your quilts. Getting my name in now and going back to read your post again and look at those great fabrics!!!

Kristin said...

Wow a 40 pack of japanese fabric charms and a book to boot. Holy cow! Every day this week has been a amazing prize. Thank you for all of the fun!!

~Michelle~ said...

Super cute - I'm becoming a fan of the Japanese fabrics...I was able to find "girly" airplane fabric only in a Japanese fabric from Purl - all the American designers use the traditional boy colors in their designs! And I really love the Echino Nico prints, although they aren't as cutesy.

Quilt Monkey said...

How generous to raid your own stash! Your fabrics are so unique, unlike the fabrics I buy. How fun it would be to win those!

Nedra said...

I am now looking at Japanese and kitchen vintage fabrics because of you. Its a whole new world of quilting!

audreypawdrey said...

I love charm squares! There is such a variety of projects you can make from them. the japanese book is awesome! This is a great prize!

Nancy said...

Oh! I am loving some of those fabrics! And the book looks like fun. I'd like to do a little perusing.

Sherri said...

Such amazing giveaways! You have such an eye for fabric! And so many comments...I don't know how you're keeping up, especially with Christmas!

Amy @ Park City Girl said...

Love your collection! Beautiful fabrics :)

LizA. said...

What an interesting assortment of vintage fabric. I don't think I've ever seen any of it before. The book looks like it has some neat patterns in it.

~D Spack~ said...

Thanks Nanette! I'll have to start serching for charm pack projects if I win this fun prize. Japanese fabrics are so unique.

Funky Kim said...

I'm beginning to fall in love with the Japanese prints, too.

belinda said...

whuh...oouuu nanette...i'm quickly learning i'm not as young as i used to be... all this partying and excitement....i'm exhausted....i'll be glad when i can claim my prize and go home...i will say it would be so hard to pick from such 'goodies'....this fabric is to 'die' for!!....oh, and in answer to an above question..i don't think japan grows it's own cotton...they import it in....long ago they got most of it from china and india....now, the u.s. supplies them along with some others...like australia......wouldn't it be something if some of 'my' little cotton was shipped to japan and ended up being woven into some of these fabulous fabrics you are offering today........hhhmmmm

Thimbleanna said...

Wow Nanette! What a great prize today!

Kritta22 said...

Wow! I don't think I've ever owned Japanese fabric before. It's not something I would buy but I do like it.

calicodaisy said...

I always like your fabric Fridays, and now you'll let one of us share in your stash. Great! I love the little Japanese crafts, but the way they print out the pattern pages make me crazy! I'm anxious to see who wins out of all these entries. -- Michele

Kim said...

Very cute prize indeed.
I was playing with EQ last night and "think" I've gotten the pattern down :)
Now to find some time to make that and the wreath pattern I found in my HUGE box of patterns. I'd love to have my star back in the bedroom where it belongs...or do I just make a new one??? Decisions, decisions...enjoy your day.

Alissa said...

Ooooh this is a good one!! I love me some Japanese fabric & craftiness!

Carla said...

I love the fabric but I have wanted one of those books forever! You have such wonderful prizes.

Suzanne said...

love love love the japanese fabric charm pack! would make an adorable baby quilt!

Susan said...

Fabulous! This is sweet, it would be my introduction into Japanese fabric and I know you have helped others into the club--like Jane, for one.

Heather said...

Yay! I would luh-luh-love to have today's prize.

Lea of Farmhouse Blessings said...

Well how interesting! I've never even heard of Japanese fabric? But it is lovely. Of course, I love fabrics of all types too especially vintage pieces. Do you ever use repurposed pieces? I was just wondering.

Honestly, I don't know how you are keeping up with all your comments. I'd be truly overwhelmed about right now!

I'll be posting my Christmas Cookie apron giveaway. I just finished it during the wee hours of this morning. So if you find time in all the busyness of your giveaway, stop by and enter mine if you can.

Wishing you joy,
Lea

sarahmurray said...

Oh my goodness, I'm so sad... I've been so busy lately I've missed so many of my favorite blogs posts! But you've been here in my heart...hehe Everything is so beautiful and inspiring as usual Nanette. The fabrics, your patterns, I love it all!

Doris said...

Wow, your giveaways get better and better! I am so hoping, and praying, that you draw my name!!!!!!

Thanks,
Doris

Messy Karen said...

hot diggity dog. such a generous gift. it makes me happy just knowing someone is going to receive this.

Country Log Cabin Quilter said...

That looks like a wonderful gift! I love charm packs & the book looks great too! Please add me again.

Amanda said...

I love all the fabric charms. They're so sweet! I have 2 of the Japanesse craft books. I don't have the one you have posted. You're going to laugh at this. When bought my first Japanese craft book it drove me crazy that I didn't know what they were saying. So, when my husband and I were in a book store one night, he found me over in a corner with a "Japanese for Dummies" book trying to understand what they were saying. I guess I'm really dumb because I still don't understand! I do love them, though, and the photos and directions look like they're easy to understand without really knowing what they're writing. The little blocks you have made are precious.

Cherold said...

What a wonderful give away! I love charm packs...I make table runners from them. Please add me to the mix.

hugs,
CheriS

tara said...

Sky's the limit with such a great pack of fabrics. I see that you are in Utah. We just moved from Northern Utah to Southern Idaho. Thank you for the give away.

em's scrapbag said...

What a charming little pack of charm squares. Thanks for this fun week you have created. I put a plug in for you on my blog yesterday, while showing some of the little house I had made from your blog earlier this week. Have a great day!

Catherine said...

Oooh, how delicious! A package of those charms and the Japanese pattern book? Sheer delight!

Jackie said...

Nanette, Another terrific day and another terrific giveaway! You are fantastic! Good luck to everyone, those fabrics are gorgeous.

The Demanding Doll said...

Day 6 already? This week has gone so fast. I've never seen (I don't think) Japanese fabrics. Interesting.

Jen in NY said...

Hi Nanette! Oooh, I'm a sucker for Japanese and novelty kitchen fabric too. What a great prize!

This has been such a fun week! Let's do it again next week! ;)

Des said...

You're turning japanese,
I think you're turning japanese
I really think so......... Sing it with me. Hope you know the song.

And I just want you to know that messy karen would be even more happy for someone to receive this if that someone was ME. xxoo

Dionne said...

I must agree with Jackie! Nanette, its another wonderful giveaway day here at Freda's hive!!

Japanese fabrics are so deliciously unique, I love them all! I'm feeling lucky!
Cheers,

PS - I'm sending you and your family loads of cyber-hugs

What a great give-away - all of them have been great. I am enjoying learning more about all the items you post - and the contest if fun besides.

Linda said...

Wow, I adore the fabrics you've pulled Nanette, but oh how I love Japanese books....

Libby said...

You are awesomely generous! I realllly hope this is the first giveaway I ever win :)

Simone de Klerk said...

Once again, Nanette, what a wonderful giveaway. I can hardly believe it. I've just recently discovered the Janpanese fabric line. In Holland I haven't seen them anywhere. I think the 5" squares wouldn't be safe here with my 17 year old daughter. And the book ... my daughter is really into Chinese. I guess she wouldn't recognize it being Japanese ... (She'll probably hate me for saying this).
Hope you can find some time for yourself and if not today, probably in a week or two.
Have a great, fun, relaxing weekend.

Purple and Paisley said...

wow - you introduced me to japanese fabrics and now i love them...another very generous giveaway...all your kindness will return to you ten-fold, you know?...=)

Sarah and Jack said...

Well now, this is an exciting prize too. Too bad it's been a crappy week and I have not been able to comment every day. Grr.

sewtakeahike said...

yay! that's all I have to say! ok, maybe not. and what a fabulous week this has been on your blog! I don't know if you ever visited Kmart in the 70's or not, but they used to have the blue light special and when they announced (with a soundsystem hooked to the mobile blue light station) the special, everyone came running to see what was to be had. That's the excitement you have created and it's indeed very fun!

Joanna said...

You know, I don't have a single Japanese craft book? I really need one you know ;) And having seen your charm squares in person, I KNOW this is worth winning!

KSedlak said...

This blog party is so fun. I love being surprised by your post each. These Japanese fabrics are adorable.
Your generous with your gifts and they are so cute.

Momoo said...

Neat book and fabric. You are right about following the picutes, I once found a pattern for a dachshund online and the directions were in Japanese. The dog turned out real cute by just following the pictures.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I've been eying the Japanese fabrics but have resisted because they haven't been related to what I have, but I can see from the squares that they would be so fund to work with.

Kerry said...

Hi Nanette,
I'm a little earlier in the line today, for my checkin. Love the prize, I often look through the japanese books, they have georgeous things in them. I don't own any, a friend of mine subscribes. See you tomorrow!

shelley said...

Trina said...

RobinE said...

Japanese fabrics really seem to have such a distinct look to them. They are so wonderful and different from what I'm used to! And that patchwork book looks very intriguing (I'm loving that pillow!). Some lucky winners are going to be very happy! :)

Melissa said...

I love them! How fun! Thanks Nanette!

R.H. said...

OMG I want to win this one!!! They are very very special and a book to learn from as well. What a wonderful gift. Being half Japanese (born in America) this really is special to me. Thanks for this fun filled week.

Kigwit said...

I love Japanese fabrics. I saw some for the first time when I was pregnant with my second son-it was little animal woodworkers on a bright yellow background-that I backed with minkee for his baby blankie. I love the sheer whimsy of the prints.

I love all those fabrics! You are an incredibly generous person. I too like to buy smaller different kinds of fabric rather than large pieces. I just like having them around.

I was just looking at a Japanese book this afternoon with some fabulous ideas in it and yes you can follow it, but I had forgotten that you begin at the back instead of the front.
Might look at some old ones again.
Lovely collection of charms. Great collecting.

I love those Japanese prints. That is a project I want to work on in the new year. I was sewing last night and forgot to look at your blog post. I know a Nanette Merrill who lives in Morgan, Utah, but she has 3 sons and one daughter. You are definately an inspiration to me. What a new thought......Look at the picture and not the instructions..... I will try it.
