This psychedelic pattern is most unusual for a vintage yukata cotton. Maybe it’s not perfect for a traditional project but there’s some fearless quilter who’ll know exactly what to do with it. ARRIVED.

Rarely do I see two bolts of the same vintage yukata cotton—let alone the same pattern in a different color way. As an identical twin, I understand how two things can be exactly alike and also very different.
These fabrics should arrive in Seattle in mid-November.

As I prep for my Trunk Show later this month, I think that the only yukata cottons quilters will want are the indigo and white patterns. Au contraire. Stacie Baumeister, the owner of QuiltWorks Northwest, believes that her customers will love lots of color. (I will let you know how it goes after the sale at the end of the September.)
