Fall Quilt Market 2011: Yuwa/Kei – 80s Colors

Yuwa is one of the essential stops of Quilt Market, not only because they consistently produce my favorite prints, but since they don’t have a website (though their cousin Kei does now) it’s hard to keep up with them otherwise. Unfortunately I was in a mad rush to leave so I could help my husband [...]

Fabric Fives: Ayumi Mills

{ Ringo Pie Bee Block by Ayumi Mills } I’ve gotten such a great response to the Fabric Fives posts I’ve been doing with authors on blog tours, I thought I would expand it to include everyone whose sewing, quilting, or tastes in fabric I admire. Ayumi Mills of Pink Penguin was one of the [...]

Kei: Geo Style

Not sure when these will be out, but I’m loving this collection of (vintage reproduction?) small-scale geometrics from Kei called Geo Style. There are a few more prints, and all the prints come in several colorways, and you can see them all here. Related posts: Kokka Cotton Linen Yuwa Circles and Strawberries Fall Quilt Market [...]

Chico Hayasaki for Kei Fabric

I didn’t think that Kei Fabric had a website, but thanks to this post from Super Eggplant, I’ve been set straight.

Kei Honeycomb Dots

Who doesn’t love these Honeycomb Dot prints from Japanese manufacturer Kei? I have a few colors in my stash which only makes me want more, so I drool over these stacks ( solid ground and white ground) at Fabricworm every time I visit. They would make a fantastic gift for any sewist, new or experienced. [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: Yuwa/Kei

I was getting a bit giddy knowing I was going to get to see a lot of Japanese companies at Market. Now that these companies are procuring US distribution and attending trade shows like Market, they are a lot easier to find. Still — there’s nothing like thumbing through stacks of textiles that I am [...]
