Fun Fabric Friday from Japan

24 comments
My source for Japanese fabric recently sent me a package full of (free) sample fabrics. Lisa is a sweet girl and she goes the extra mile for me.
I can see stripes on the roof tops of houses and cottages.
These bright 60's flowers will be used in some future project I'm sure.
The flowers in soft pastels can be added to prints to soften the feel of a quilt.
Combined stripes and flowers - lovely.
I love polka dots and I can use these in lots of projects, maybe even some for Christmas.
This is a larger piece and I think this would make a really great floor cloth for Allison.
And I could use this piece to make her a dolly quilt when she is just a bit older. I love the window in the fabric.
This fabric has a carrot and strawberry to make for a plush toy. This might go for either Allison or our dog Shadow. If I put a squeaky plastic thingie in it then Shadow will want it for sure.

There were some other lovelies in the box from Lisa too. I'm sure they will all be used. It was so fun to open the box and discover the mystery fabric. Thanks Lisa.

How nice to get free fabric. I'm sure you have been one of her best customers in the past. The first ones didn't look like your other Japanese fabrics, but the last ones sure did.

A good friend is a joy forever, and it looks like Miss Lisa is a Keeper! Beautiful fabrics and interesting ideas for how to utilize them.

I am still trying to picture Japanese women quilting, much less designing such beautiful fabric!
I guess I always envisioned them crouched over computers or working in factories, silly me.

Aaack! Those big jumbo 60's flowers take me back to my childhood!

Momoo said...

Love the bright 60's flowers. It must be so much fun planning all the things you can make for Allison.

Lynn said...

Such great fabrics. Love the 60's flowers, it reminds me of the speedo swim suits we used to wear in the 60's/70's. Funny to see who gets the toy - baby or dog.
