intriguing geometrics

There is no shortage of geometric yukata cottons. They were produced for men’s summer kimonos and, well, half of Japan’s population is of that persuasion.

I have a huge collection of indigo and white geometrics. What I have learned over time is that the quality of cotton rolled onto small round cores is much finer than cotton in folded bolts.

Knowing that these fabrics are great “fillers” for quilters, I keep my eyes open for unique designs. The top pattern is crisp with high contrast while the second one is sketchy and subdued. Both will have a place in a future quilt, I’m sure.
