I love Oriental fabrics. I mean really, really love them and I make a lot of quilts with Oriental fabrics. So when I was at market in fall 2009 and four months pregnant with Quinn I didn’t feel badly when I dropped a chunk of change on some indigo fabrics. I knew I wouldn’t be back to any market for a good while and I’d been eyeing the fabrics for ages. Seriously, like for three or four years at. every. market.
Now I can’t figure out what to do with them. I pulled the fat quarters down the other day – I think I have something like fifty- and it just escapes me. I’ve doodled and googled for inspiration but no luck yet. I’m baffled.
Because I promised to write more about my design process I thought I’d post this as my starting point. I’d like to get further than this, though.

I have a thing for them too. I have a 2 yard cut of some gorgeous japanese Olympus fabric with roses on it that I am DYING to sew but it is too special to cut, KWIM? And Kokka, ooooh Kokka, it’s just too lovely.
I am excited to see what you make. FIFTY fat quarters!?!?!?!
Isn’t that the worst? But when you do finally cut into it you’ll end up being even happier with the product than just the fabric, if that’s possible. lol. Kokka is pretty awesome. I love that stuff, just wish it wasn’t so darn expensive.
Btw…LOVE the wool bird you made. I was looking at it then was interrupted before I could reply.
