Fall Quilt Market 2009: Kiyohara & Co. Ltd. (And Giveaway)


Kiyohara is the Osaka-based manufacturer responsible for the brands Puti de Pome, Me-In Beby, Ecrulat, and others, and they also produce Sanrio character fabrics. Here are their new offerings. I’m also giving away a half-yard pack of the “My Favorite” collection … details at the bottom of the post!


Puti de Pome – note that the trucks and cars are border prints. Sweet dogs!


Puti de Pome – neighborhood. I’m a sucker for mappy prints.


Me-in Beby collection


Boku To Watashi display





I wanted to climb into these Boku To Watashi fabrics and live there. The pictures show the different top and bottom borders.


Another border print, from the Kiyohara Home Textile line.



Kiyohara Home Textile dot fabric and ribbon


A patchwork/cheater print


Simple, pretty diamonds on a linen/cotton blend

Even more photos from the Kiyohara & Co. booth on Flickr.


I brought home a half-yard bundle of a line called “My Favorite” for you! It’s 10 half-yard cuts of heavier-weight cotton that would make great baby or children’s clothes, quilts, or accessories. The hearts, strawberries, apples, and cherries look like they’re drawn with colored pencil or crayon.


I’m going to up the ante for this giveaway, if you don’t mind! To enter, link to True Up (your favorite post, perhaps?) on Twitter, Facebook, or your blog, or just promise to tell someone who you think might enjoy daily fabric news and inspiration about us via the medium of your choice. This is the honor system here — just remember to come back and leave a comment to let me know you did it! This giveaway is open worldwide. A winner will be drawn next Wednesday, October 28, 2009, around 9am Central U.S. time. Thanks so much for playing!
