Here are some of my favorites!
|Wonderful Scrap, Circle and Square, Lattice, French Ribbon Text|
Suzuko Koseki is the original queen of funky text prints and modern/vintage eclectic styling.
Yuwa's Fancy Circle print showcases her sweet, but updated cottage chic charm.
|Kei Cranky Cats, Traditional Asa Flower, Kiyohara Alphabet, Painted Flowers|
And a huge selection of miscellaneous Japanese prints sets Miss Matatabi apart from the rest. Everything from funky/offbeat to cute to beautiful - Japanese fabrics add a special touch to your quilts and small projects.
Beyond quilting cottons, Miss Matatabi stocks linen, knit, wool, seersucker and more. You'll find many breathtaking double gauze fabrics by Nani Iro.
I have yet to get my hands on one of her pieces, but I look forward to the day! I imagine a super-soft baby dress, scarf or luxurious pillowcase. Oooh, that would be nice!
Oh, and look how you can also buy quilted Nani prints in durable brushed cotton! Seems like a convenient way to jump start a quilted bag, sewing machine cover, etc.
Miss Matatabi ships by parcel post, and postage fees are more reasonable than you would guess. Shipping to the U.S. does take about 2 weeks, but I suspect you'll feel your unusual finds are worth the wait. This time those of you in Australia are closer to the goods!
In addition to a wide range of Japanese Fabrics, Miss Matatabi stocks Cotton & Steel. Guess she couldn't resist! Who can blame her? She has the new 4th season collections, including solid cotton lawns. One lucky reader will win a fat quarter set of 11 colors.
