Spring Quilt Market 2010 – Lecien

Rounding up the Japanese manufacturers at Spring Quilt Market is Lecien. Atelier Akiko (more text! only this time it’s French). Holiday Happy, previously featured here, by Ms. Happy Zombie, Monica Solorio-Snow! I got to meet her, but it was one of those passing-each-other-at-quilt-market conversations (during the last hours of the last day, no less), that [...]

Sneak Peek: Holiday Happy by Monica Solorio-Snow for Lecien

Monica Solorio-Snow of the popular quilting blog Happy Zombie announced today that Lecien will be releasing her first fabric collection, Holiday Happy, at the Spring Quilt Market. There seems to be a trend of non-Japanese designers designing for Japanese companies — not that good design knows sees borders! Holiday Happy is of course a holiday [...]

Japanese Fabric of the Week: Isso Ecco from Lecien

Some of my favorite prints from the Isso Ecco & Heart, the newest collection from Lecien. Isso Ecco is actually a housewares shop in Japan, with both brick & mortar and online outlets, so it’s not surprising that the fabrics are a home dec weight cotton canvas. Thanks to Hawthorne Threads (who is carrying the [...]

Japanese Fabric of the Week: Lecien Old New 1930s

Here’s a closer look at Lecien’s Old New Fabric Collection 1930s, which I covered at Quilt Market last October. The Fat Quarter Shop seems to have the best selection at the moment — I’m surprised it’s not in more shops. Aren’t we all suckers for strawberries? See the complete collection archived on Flickr.

Japanese Fabric of the Week: Spicy Scrap by Lecien

                I can’t get over how great this collection is. I love how the designer didn’t shy away from bold, contrasty colors that ring true to the 40s-50s. You might remember it from Quilt Market coverage — well now it’s available in the shops. Look for “sushi rolls” [...]

Japanese Fabric of the Week: Grandmother’s Flower Garden by Rosalie Quinlan

Grandmother’s Flower Garden is Australian designer Rosalie Quinlan (of Melly & Me fame)’s debut collection of Japanese company Lecien. It has been out in stores for several weeks now. This sweet collection is a tribute to the classic, hexagon-based Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt. You can use these quilting cottons to make a GFG quilt of [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Lecien Part II

Here’s more from Lecien. (Part 1 is here, in case you missed it.) More charming vintage reproduction and vintage-inspired collections: The much-anticipated Grandmother’s Flower Garden from Rosalie Quinlan. Kicking myself for not getting a quilt picture, but fortunately GFG is well documented on Rosalie’s blog and on Ever Kelly. Ms. Pam Kitty Morning made one [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Lecien

Nireko Ohira, native of Japan who has worked at Lecien‘s office in California for several years, kindly showed me the dozens of lines the company is offering now. Everything I have pictured here today is currently delivering or is now available in shops. There was so much of it that I have to break it [...]
