I have spent what feels like a lifetime collecting Japanese Indigo fabrics.
There was a quilt shop a long time ago when I lived in LA that carried a lot of these sorts of fabrics because there was a Japanese owner and she had a passion for them.
These days, my new indigo fabrics come from here and there. I don't have a great source of them actually.
I used some in the above quilt block for a baby quilt. You can see the half square triangles that I made if you squint and look really hard. Can you see them? I can almost see them.
I am looking forward to PIQF though, maybe there will be some good indigo's there.
PIQF - AKA Pacific International Quilt Festival 2011 is taking place in about 2 weeks here in San Jose.
I'll be taking the day off to run around the show with my quilting friend to take photos and see what the booths have to offer.
Of course I'll post all the photos up for you, but you may want to attend in person if you can figure out how to get there. It's worth the trip.
Anybody else out there planning to go?
