four february giveaways!


This month’s giveaway features lovely sewing supplies provided by Quilting Foxes—three fat quarters of Japanese fabric, an owl noren panel, and a skein of sashiko thread. There are four giveaways, each valued at $55.

Two of the fat quarters are printed with traditional motifs—ocean waves and colorful dragonflies. The third fat quarter is a stripe from Bingo-Fushiori—yarn-dyed using natural indigo, persimmon juice, and charcoal, and woven on an old-fashioned shuttle weaving machine. The owl noren panel is produced by a Japanese company called Tanji. The fine, high-quality white sashiko thread is by Daruma Thread’s Yokota Numees division.

    Without going through all my fabric totes (sorted by color) I’d estimate 4 – 6 yards. A couple pieces 2 yards or so, the rest smaller pieces. Not nearly enough for the Japanese wall hanging I’d like to make for my son in the next few months.

    I started with one shelf in the upstairs hall closet. Now 2/3 of the closet is given over to yukata and contemporary Japanese fabric for both quilts and garment sewing. It brings me great pleasure. Thank you, Patricia, for bringing these beautiful fabrics into my life. More is better!

    I have a nice container of them but I need more. Someday I will make something cool with them

They are my passion which I have transmitted to several quilters in our guild. I have completed several wall quilts and several quilts using Japanese cotton or silk fabric. The panel and fabrics in your giveaway would really work well with fabrics waiting for inspiration.

  37. Pamela V says:

    A couple of prints but no true Japanese fabric. I hope you can fix that!!

  43. Kathi P. says:

    I have several Japanese prints…..but these are lovely. Thanks for the opportunity

  45. Teresa Mori says:

    No amount is enough!

  46. Susan Hayes says:

  49. mvjan says:

    Oh dear, do you want that measured in miles, kilometers, tons …? There’s no such thing as too much Japanese fabric. I am the curator of an extensive Japanese textile collection!

  50. Christine Gross says:

    Well, I have a nice selection of Japanese cotton and wool- all from your pop up show and book reveal in LaConner a few months ago. Really love the colors and patterns. Been doing a bit of sachiko too, now how to merge the two together in a project?

  51. Bertella Hansen says:

    I have 4 panels which I bought from you and 5 fat quarters and then 2-3 yards ofblue and white fabric. I hope to make a wall hanging and also a jacket with these . I also have some Japanese silk pieces and am not sure what I’ll do with them, yet.

  52. karen b says:

    Most of my stash is japanese fabric, I have it sorted by color. I have a few special pieces of indigo that my son brought from a dye works in Kyoto. I have been working on various asian blocks from Susan Briscoe’s work for the last two years.

  53. karen b says:

    I have been working on blocks from Susan Briscoe’s books for the last two years. Most of my stash is japanese fabric, I have it sorted by color. I have a few special pieces of indigo that my son brought from a dye works in Kyoto. I now want to take a cue from Patricia’s new book and make some of those blocks!

    I have a fair amount of the vintage yukata cottons and about 2 yards of modern Japanese fabric. I love the fabrics.

    I’ve only just started to collect Japanese fabric as my friend Jackie has gotten me started!

  57. Janet Wright says:

    I can’t believe how much Japanese fabric I own–mostly from Okan Arts. Love it. Sometimes I just stroke it. Since I have only won Pick=up ticks and a Turkey in any

  61. Louise Sakihama says:

    I have pieces of blue and white fabric that I saved when I deconstructed a Japanese summer yukata. I am slowly increasing my stash of Japanese motifs. It is indeed a fun obsession. I fully understand Patricia and join her on this wonderful journey!
    Thank you,
    Louise

    Not enough at this time. I would love to add one of the giveaways. Thank you for this opportunity.

    I have sewn with some Japanese fabric, love the texture of fabric, colors available and designs. Would like to have access to more designs.

  72. soozi says:

    more than a few lifetime’s worth…my dad had a store and we sold yukata
    kimonos…it all started with my collecting all the salemen’s sample..then
    there was no turning back. flea markets, trips to Japan fueled my passion.

  73. Edlamae Thompson Baird says:

    How about 3 tubs of yukata kimonos, yes tubs. All ironed, folded, sorted, ready for picking apart, cutting up, and restitching for quilts. If it is about who has the most to win the prize…I believe that it would be me!!

  74. Terry Cullan says:

    I don’t have any I love to look at them! So pretty!

  75. Larena Krewall says:

    NOT enough I love the indigos and have about 2 yards that I am going to work
    sashiko on squares to put on grand kids jeans..It is so much fun (I don’t think it looks
    very good ) but then when work is finished it is pretty good!!

  81. Gretchen says:

    Zero! It’s not readily available where I live in Kansas. I found your site over a year ago and started following. All your inspiration with Japanese fabric, culture, artists, and more is incredible. Thank you!

  82. Lynn D in NC says:

    I only have a few FQs I don’t find Japanese fabric often. When I do, i hate to cut into it, I love the fabric so much,

    I have a little bit of fabric from you, and I want more! Love these fabrics. OWLS!

  87. Carola S. De Pascuale says:

I have been twice to Tokyo where I was able to indulge a little bit and brought quite a bit of fabric that went into my carry on. I left half of my wardrobe behind. Thanks for sharing.

    Too much…not really , I love every Asian inspired fab and am a obssesive sashiko enthusiast…what I don,t have enough of…is TIME to sew it all into beautiful projects.

  92. Quilting Tangent says:

    I don’t think I have any Japenese fabric.

  93. Lillian Martin says:

  100. Lori Beitler says:

    NEVER ENOUGH!!! I Love them so much I always need more

  101. Tamara R. says:

    I started studying Japanese fabric several months ago, so I have a small stash of taupes from Yoko Saito and Daiwabo. I also have three yards of indigo. I am slowly trying to increase my stash in both areas as I learn. Japanese fabric is beautiful and I agree with the others, you can never have enough!

  102. 2 1/2 plastic tubs. I still have room for more. I love sashiko, shibori and making blocks from Susan Biscoe’s books. I am going to Japan next January for the quilt show in Tokyo. Donna, NC

  104. Anita says:

    I have a couple FQs of Japanese fabrics, and obviously need more!

  105. Samala Ray says:

    Several tubs worth. I taught my daughter to drive by having her drive me to all the quilt shops, which she was totally bored with til she discovered the Japanese fabrics. At that point our deal changed, and every weekend she got a yard of her own. I’ve made her several quilts from that stash so far. 🙂

    I have a little taupe but would love to have more!

  109. Alice Dyer says:

    I have 37 Japanese fabrics in my stash

  110. Veronica says:

    I know I have at least one piece of japanese fabric. It is so fine and thin-but beautifully woven cotton fabric. I have others that have japanese prints on them and I’m not sure if they are japanese made or just inspired by japanese designs. I’d love to make something with these fabrics with the contrasting sashiko thread. Thank you.

  111. Linda Lim says:

    I have 3 “bankers boxes” of yukata samples, and Japanese fabrics. I started collecting them and using them since 1984. Love them. Bought a Sashiko sewing machine a year ago to help inspire me.

  112. Elizabeth Eisenhood says:

    Just enough to whet my appetite for more. A Japanese friend has given me bits of her mother’s old kimonos that will combine beautifully with other fabrics…maybe indigo or subtle patterns.

  113. Kate Meyers says:

    My stash is severely depleted. I have one of those “only in my mind” projects that Okan Arts has sparked inspiration to get going on. Winning would be great, but either way I will be shopping soon. Thanks for this great site!

  114. Sandi Vadset says:

    I have some old kimonos silks and a wonderful piece of indgo from Japan. Havecouple books to see patterns and what more materials will go with what I have.

  115. Rebecca Lock says:

  118. Masa says:

    I have just 2 pieces (which I purchased in Tokyo while an college exchange student exactly 40 years ago which I have never cut and only worn as shawl wraps). Thought I’d return for a visit to buy more “someday” to make a quilt depicting a scene in Mitaka, but I haven’t made it back!

  119. carol Denning says:

    I currently have very little Japanese fabric; and this giveaway would give me a lovely start to understanding it more! Thanks for the chance to win!

  124. Janet Bahr says:

    I have quite a bit of blue and white Japanese prints Cotton and some very subtle gray tone fabrics, and a few panels and a couple of Kimonos I want to cut up. I really need to find a project to start off with using up some of my stash. Of course one can never have too much of a good thing.

  162. I have 3 bins full that I have collected from Japan and the Textile Center garage sale in Minnesota.

  163. Diane Johnson says:

    I have quit a bit of Japanese silks but have only started collecting and designing with cottons. I expect winning this prize will get me Sewing!

  164. Marty Vint says:

    I have a few pieces that I treasure…the kind of fabrics you want to just look at and not cut.

  165. Judy Valentino says:

    Probably about 20 yards, I was in Japan in 2015 and purchased some there and some at a LQS. Of course I could always use more!

  166. Cathy Mueller says:

    I have a few yards of Japanese fabric that I’ve purchased when found in stores. I love that you have in the above pictures the orange version and the blue as well, of the multi arc fabric. My son

    Just starting a collection. Thanks for the chance to win more.

  176. Ellen Haugen Liliedahl says:

  178. Lydia Reading says:

    A bit if you count the few old kimonos I haven’t the heart to cut into yet. I snatch up Japanese fabric whenever I see it. My granddaughters 1st project with her Nana was a Japanese cotton top.

  179. JEanie Low says:

    I bought Japanese fabric on a trip there. FOur years later, I finally cut and pieced 2 wearables and a wall quilt. I’m needing to build up my stash. SO, I hope to receive a giveaway of Japanese fabric. I need more, more, more.

    Pam

  185. Becky Weaver says:

    We estimate our Japanese stash, relatively new thing in the last 2 years, to be about 20 yards. In my travels to the Los Angeles, CA area I found a great selection at one of their area shops. I live in PA and there is a vendor at the quilt show every September that my daughter and I visit. She is the one that got me into the Japanese fabric. We love these owls by the way!

  186. nanibi says:

    Several–maybe 10?–pieces of printed-in-Japan fabrics; such good quality. And 1 yukata-length large-scale floral from c. 1960 Japan… now mentally transferred into my stash.

  187. Alice Brody says:

    I have a small collection of Yukatas and several kimonos and obis given to me by a friend who lived in Japan many years ago. Will not disassemble this kimonos, have two hanging in my apartment. Would love to have more.

  188. KARON says:

    I am just starting to use Japanese textiles. These are beautiful.

  191. Judith McGinty says:

    I have at least 50 pieces of “asian influence” American fabric, and $25,000 worth of genuine Japanese fabric – the cost of 2 trips to Japan in the last 12 months. Love, love, love Japan. Got to go to the BIG Japanese International Great Quilt Show 3 weeks ago.

  192. Marcia Z says:

    About 10 yards and several fat quarters with plans for a couple quilts and a Yukata.

  195. Deb Gore Ohrn says:

    Love that quilt and the fabric you used

  201. Dee G. says:

    I have some old Japanese kimonos for cutting that I bought at shrine sales when I lived in Japan more than 20 years ago. For four months, I traveled the country but my home base was just up the hill from the lovely Blue & White. Thx for the photo of the quilt w kokeshi dolls on the bedside table. I cherish my collection. True kokeshi dolls squeak when you twist their heads!

  210. Jill Johnson says:

    Not nearly enough. Just one small spot in my stash cupboard!

  211. Terry Yep says:

    I have bits & pieces recycled from used kimono/yukata sellers. The challenge is figuring out how to use them. So of course more fabric is needed to make choices easier. That’s my story & I am sticking to it.:)

  212. E McKeown says:

    Zero..but I would love to start a collection!

  213. cynthia reed says:

    Too much to count!

  223. Andrea Avni says:

    I have several yards of several traditional blue and white Japanese fabrics brought to me by a friend who lives here and was visiting home and family in Japan recently. It’s so beautiful I’ve yet to cut into it!

  231. Kaye Hutchinson says:

    Sad that your competition is not available to Ausralian quilters

  233. Lucia Johnson says:

    I have two boxes of Japanese fabric in my stash. One I’ve collected here in the US, but the other was sent to me by a Japanese friend. I’m amazed at the differences between the two boxes, both is texture and color. I’ve bought mostly the crisp blue and while yukata style cottons here in the US, but she sent me a wide range of more muted browns and greens, and heavier weaves.

  234. Rachel says:

    I have 2 1yard pieces that I managed to find on a website. Not enough! I love Japanese fabrics and would love to have ‘enough’ to choose from to make a king size quilt (and a couple Bible covers so I can switch them out with the seasons).

  235. EMMY STORHOLM says:

    JAPANESE FABRICS ARE WONDERFUL, AND TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THEM IS A DESIRE OF MINE.

    My fingers want to feel all of these fabrics shown, and in my own stash, I have not nearly enough.

  237. Phyllis says:

    I have a few precious pieces, covet more!

  238. Sarah Ahlgren says:

  245. Kathleen Flanagan says:

    I use as much Japanese fabric as I can afford. I love it!!!

  246. Becky DuBose says:

    Living in the deep South I don’t have any Japanese fabrics but I once lived in WA where there is a significant population of Japanese and I love the fabrics, especially the ocean waves. I am eager to try Sashiko.

  247. Nancy says:

    One can never have enough Japanese fabrics in their stash!

  248. Sylvia Weir says:

    How I wish Texas was closer. These workshops and this fabric are so exciting. I’ve been trying some batik with the beeswax I collect from my beehive–and also some indigo dyeing. My work is quite amaturish but still so fun.

  249. Sally MBauer says:

    I wish I could say that I have a stash of Japanese fabrics, but I don’t. When I see pieces at a show, I will buy. I love touching and choosing. I use it right away.

  250. Sue says:

    I have lots of Japanese fabric but it is never enough. I only hope that one day one of my granddaughters will start to quilt!

  251. Holly Hudson says:

    I am a lucky camper! I have at least a shoebox size container of Japanese fabric–in squares, triangles or strips. Usually I attend one Quilt Show a year in the mid-atlantic region….and that’s where I have purchased fabric & on Etsy. It was at one of these events that I took my first sashiko class–love it & have taken many indigo dyeing classes. You all are very lucky to live closer to Japan than us on the east coast.

  252. Mary Jo says:

    I only have a few scraps left from a project a few years ago. Would love to have more!

  253. Mary Ann Sippl says:

  262. Sylvia says:

    I have several roles of cotton yukata cloth that I purchased when we lived in Japan in the 60’s. When we returned for a visit two hears ago, i was dissapointed to find that my favorite Takashimya Department store no longer carried these fabrics for home sewing.

  263. Jo Ewald says:

    I have way too much for any one person to use in a lifetime. But I enjoy visiting it occasionally.

  264. Lori Martinsek says:

    My fascination with Japanese fabrics began with samples purchased from Kasuri Dyeworks because of the distinct qualities of each fabric. My collection of vintage and katsuri cottons has allowed me to make unique quilts with embroidery. East Meets West is an inspiring collection of designs for my upcoming quilts.

  265. Martha Diehl says:

    One cubby of the Ikea bookshelf, and the scraps in various tubs. Those owls are calling to me!

  266. Chris P says:

    Not nearly enough! Actually, very little. I do have a Yoko Saito book that beckons me to try everything in it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  267. Linda McLaughlin says:

    I only have four pieces, 2 of them are exquisite hand tied shibori pieces and two yukata prints.

  268. Sherry Massey says:

  269. Janet Schayer says:

    I have some bits and pieces of old kimonos which I use in art quilt projects….I’ve found a few contemporary fabrics at Fancy Tiger in Denver…..I love the design ….

  270. Sheree C says:

    Such wonderful fabric. I have some Japanese fabric, but always welcome more. I have been planning a quilt with the fabric I do have.

  271. Kathleen Craig says:

    love your website! Japanese textiles inspire me to create.

  272. Mary Cooper says:

    Two pieces brought to me by a friend from Japan and then fat quarters from the quilt shows here in the Seattle area.

  273. Ann Kovalchick says:

    I love blue and I think those owls are wonderful.

  274. Jay says:

    I have a 6″ deep bin full of both fat quarters and yardage. One day, I’ll put all this luscious fabric to use, but in the meantime, i take pleasure in visiting and petting it on a regular basis!

  275. Sarah Sheckells says:

    Very nice! Have been doing some sashiko and really enjoy the calming effect it has. I love blues too so it would be a great piece to construct. Sarah

  276. Adamandia Kapsalis says:

    Just a small amount, so far…

  277. Gail Duffield says:

    Love Japanese fabrics but have not purchased any to date. Love to see fabrics in person, but don’t know of a shop in San Diego . Actually I love most Japanese crafts

  278. sgrancio says:

    I have some completed sashiko pieces, including a yard+ panel, along with one stack of mostly blue and white Japanese fabrics. @susansquiltstudio

  280. Kay Skov says:

    I have one meter of Yakkuta fabric that I purchased last Saturday, two fat quarters (one is the dragonflies shown above) and one block that was inside Patricia’s book when I purchased it! I’m just getting started on my Japanese stash.

  281. mlmasters2014 says:

    My stash is slowly getting larger, now have only fat quarters and I love fondling them. I’m waiting for just the right inspiration to cut into them. So I never have enough Japanese stash and the owls are too cute! Thank you for the opportunity! Millissa

  282. Jerry says:

    Very nice fabrics. My head is spinning with ideas

  283. Beppie Broker says:

    at this moment I have only leftovers ftrom the quilt I’d made for my daughter. Your fabrics are great, it makes my to want to make an other one.

    I have a lovely selection of Japanese yukata cotton fabrics, thanks to Okan Arts, plus a number of vintage kimono sections… some day, they will end up in a project!

  287. Tanya says:

    Never enough; the more the merrier. Your “East meets West” book provides endless options using a mix of these fabrics!

  288. Carol says:

    Working on using Yucatán in a blouse..long ways to go. Thank you for the inspiration

  289. Grace Kono says:

    Two binsful of yukata fabric and Japanese fabric I have collected over the years when I visited Japan. Altho my collection is sufficient for prospective projects, I would like to add to it, especially the sashiko thread since I am working on several sashiko kits.

    Love the East Meets West Quilts book, Patricia…so inspiring!

  290. RareBird says:

  292. Linda Humphrey says:

    I have several fat quarters of Japanese fabric.

  293. Diane says:

    My son brought me some fabric from Japan and I need to figure out what to do with it. You are a great resource Patricia. Your fabrics are stunning!

  294. Kathleen McQuiggin says:

    I have a few yards purchased from you at the Clark County Quilters Guild meeting when you made a visit. I am now interested in Sashiko and have some thread so all I need is a little time to try one of the Sashiko designs.

  295. MONA says:

    I have a box full, but need to refill because I used some for a quilt for my son. Shopping at your little shop gives me inspiration for the yukata fabrics that I bought!

  296. Gale Schwarb says:

    Thanks for the opportunity to win. I have really enjoyed seeing the photos from Tokyo quilt festival; thank you so much for sharing them!!

  297. Christine Sullivan says:

    I always love shopping for more Yukata fabrics to go with my many other pieces. I love to buy fabric from the
    Quilting Foxes too

  299. Jolene Mershon says:

    I have a lot of Japanese fabric. I have approximately 50 pieces of Daiwabo yarn dyed, more than that of taupe cotton and at least 20-30 pieces of beautiful Japanese prints. I also have several squares of fabric with special prints or designs. And, yes I have already made several quilts using my Japanese stash and I will make more. When a quilting friend had to get rid of her stash because her eyesight was failing, I bought her stash of Japanese fabric for several dollars per pound. What a delight when a large box of Japanese fabric arrived in the mail. Her box complimented what I had already acquired in Japanese fabric. I think of my friend, now passed away, whenever I look at those lovely fabrics.

  300. Jane Berliss says:

    I love Japanese fabrics and love working with them. The owl panel is fabulous. I want to come to Seattle to visit your shop!

  301. Alison Voinot says:

    Not enough!!

  305. Carol Laube says:

    So happy to see a source for Japanese fabrics. I love them but had no idea where to get them. Thanks!

  306. Elaine in North Texas says:

    I have none at this point in time but I would love to get started with some.

  307. Edie troyer says:

    I am liking the Japanese styles and fabrics more all the time. I saw one of the artist last name was Saito….wondering if they are related to Yoko? She does beautiful things too.

  308. Mary Marusin says:

    I have very little. A few fat quarters and some precious kimono fabric pieces I got while in Japan. My daughter in law is Japanese and they live in Calif. She gave me some from her grandmother. What fun it would be to win and make Mai something special.

  309. Barb Colvin says:

    I have just a few fat quarters of yarn dyed lovelies with some coordinating prints. I’m saving them for a special project (or maybe I should admit they are for petting and drooling over!) It has been suggested that buying more will result in actual use.

  310. Terry says:

    I have just a few pieces little pieces in my stash–purchased in a fabulous, little quilting store and I just had to have some–enough to make a small quilted tote bag. And this give away is such a delight!!!

  311. Karen says:

    A deconstructed antique kimono lies in a trunk waiting to yield itself to the perfect project.

  312. Jan says:

    I have maybe a dozen fat quarters and several yards of yukata cloth. I’ve been saving it to use for special projects.

  313. Donna Capis says:

    When I learned about Okan Arts and met Patricia my Japanese fabric stash began to include cotton yukata yardage. I already had a few complete rolls of yukata cotton from friends. Now I also have some very fine wool yukata yardage purchased from Okan Arts for a jacket. All of this added to a collection of kimono silks that has been accumulating for many years.I have made several silk projects from Kumiko Sudo’s books. Now I am looking for a project in Patricia’s book East Meets West Quilts with yukata yardage purchase from her. Have some indigo dyed Japanese fabric that was done at a class on indigo dying at the PNW Quilt and Fiber Arts Museum in LaConner, Wa. It is waiting for Sashiko stitching. So many beautiful Japanese textiles and techniques and so little time.So about 1/4 of my stash is traditional Japanese textiles.

  314. Amy Loar says:

    I own yardage of 4 yukata cottons, and several fat quarters of retro animal prints from Japan. It would be fun to sew with more.

  315. Linda Kocisek says:

    None. But I have a feeling that is going the change.

  316. Linda Levy says:

    Love every one of them……

  317. Debo Hysack says:

    Roughly 10% of my fabric is Keiko Goke and Lecien. I also have some old kimono pieces.

  318. Laura says:

    I’ve never seen such beautiful fabric before. I would love to try working with them. I’ll bet they are addicting.

  319. Jane says:

    This was my first time on your web page—you have gorgeous fabric and I can see where I could go wild buying on your site! I will be back….

  320. Nance says:

    Never enough!

  321. Jackie Stevens says:

    I do not have any fabrics from Japan but would like to own some.

  322. Jane Kuwana says:

    Sorry we missed the Quilt show by being in Japan in October rather than January!

    I have some I’ve collected to make a quilt, not quite enough yet! I make hand quilted ones for my grands, and a new granddaughter was born in December.

  324. Dale W says:

    Super Fabrics! Great Selection. The Blues, Reds and White fabrics are so nice, and so are the Taupes and All the others.

  325. I have a few small bits in ought in Seattle last Fall. I keep changing my mind on the project it will become.

  326. Cindy Fuller says:

    I have some beautiful Japanese fabric I have purchased over the past years, some traditional, others Japanese inspired. Included in my Japanese stash I have a wonderful flea market find of 5 yd of “Stroll by the Edogawa” as well as yardage with Geisha’s but the name of of the design escapes me. But the best of all is the fabric a dear friend bought for me in Japan while visiting relatives. Things such as this gift are hard to cut into. Thank you for blessing me with the opportunity to win…as well as the blessing of your wonderful site!

  327. marty says:

    Have more Japanese fabric than I truly realized. Such good natured precious stuff!

  328. SouixBee says:

    Today’s email makes me want to move back to Washington, or perhaps Japan. I absolutely love the Lucky Owls quilt. Thanks for the link to the Foxes store.

  329. Pam Schmidt says:

    Currently I do not have any Japanese fabric in my stash. I am beginning to enjoy the colors, textures and designs of Japanese fabric and will begin to gather some great pieces for my next project.

  330. Carp; says:

    I have fabric; yardage; panels; fat quarters; silk, acquired over a long time. By the way, Japanese fabric can be found in unexpected places around here. My recent project was to make gift tote bags with Japanese/American fabric because I wanted to give special gifts to a friend traveling to Japan,and my first special international student from 20 years ago. I still have fabric, I can make more!
    PS I now check bolts to see where it’s made–just to pay attention.
    Cheers!

  331. Jeanne McArdle says:

    Thanks for the giveaway and crossing my fingers that I am chosen​ to receive the beautiful selection of fabrics I currently don’t have any stash but through our Charity bee in Tucson we have made quilts with your fabrics to give to children and our charity is Quilt for a Cause. Xxoo

  332. Carol says:

    I have very little Japanese fabric. It is very difficult to find in shops in my area

  333. Cindy Chock says:

    Not nearly enough! I just love the owl fabric.

  334. sandra Schwartz says:

    I have two large tubs of Oriental fabrics in my stash but here is only one place near Tampa where I can buy real Japanese fabrics, so I have only a few. I would love to win the Lucky Owls panel for a quilt for my grandson. Thank you for opportunity to win the fabrics and panel.

  335. Barbara peterson says:

    I went to Japan quilt show in 2017 had a wonderful time…but didn’t buy enough fabric so need so much more… thank you for having this give away.

  336. christine sheridan says:

    I have about 40 separate japanese fabrics from a fat quart to two yards.

  337. Susan Beasley says:

    I don’t have any but after seeing this I definitely need some.

  338. Pam says:

    I don’t have any Japanese fabric in my stash. I had some fat quarters and used them all in pouches. Thanks for the chance to win this lovely fabric and thread!

  339. ROBIN SHEPARD says:

    I have 9 fat quarters of various indigo and white patterns, a panel of Ainu coats, 2 yards of pure indigo blue fabric, a blue and white panel of the moon and rabbits, some sashiko fabrics, plain and printed. Some traditional modern prints in red and white and also plum. Each is precious to me. Thanks for the drawing chance – I’m new to this blog.

  340. Carolyn Wolf says:

    How much Japanese fabric?? Not nearly enough!

  341. Judy Cole says:

    One yard, not enough don’t you agree?

  342. CHARLOTTE KEY says:

    Yes, I have an embarrassing amount of Japanese fabric in my stash.

  343. Karen Cyr says:

    A two foot high stack, but definitely not enough,

  344. Patricia Bishop says:

    First,I ordered your book,”East Meets West Quilts”. The owl panel is used in one of the quilts–darling!

  345. Carol Johnson says:

    At this time, I have no true Japanese fabric in my stash. I am impressed by the artful skill of all the quilt artists I have seen from this country.

  346. Jo Russell says:

    I love the combo. It would make a super cool quilt with a few sashiko squares added into the mix.

  347. Kim McCloskey says:

    I have always admired Japanese fabric, but I have only two fat quarters in my collection. I would love to have more.

  348. Pam J Cope says:

    I have a good collection of Taupe Japanese fabrics, but love the variety of prints they use in their quilts. Going to Tokyo next year. I will need to buy an extra suitcase to bring home my loot!

  349. Sally Strawn says:

    I have a bin full of beautiful Yukata I have collected. I have made 2 wall hangings and am designing another using Patricia’s new book. I love the large motifs on the fabrics and the wonderful colors.

  350. Mary Jo Buckingham says:

    My stash of Japanese fabric has grown from hand-made papers to fabrics. In the 80’s, when I lived in Taiwan and Japan, while looking for handmade papers, I discovered old and new norens. This led me to early morning weekend temple fairs with new discoveries of hand dyed cottons and silks remnants. Okan Arts has enabled me to expand my colors and motifs. Just recently my husband bought me an antique obi chest to hold my treasures.

  351. Kathleen Miller says:

    About one fourth of my color stash is Japanese fabric. I can’t get enough of the exquisite designs. So glad there are a few US: the shops out there devoted to them.

  352. Susan Rush says:

    Owls and sashiko, two of my favorites things! I do not own true Japanese fabric yet. I would love to win this giveaway!

  353. Joan Holms says:

    I own only about 2 yards of true Japanese fabric. I also purchased a small panel which was intended for my 1st sashiko attempt but I don’t have thread and pattern yet. What I have is not nearly as beautiful as the fabric I see on your site. I’ll be back soon to do some shopping!

  354. Claudette Fredette-Vido says:

    I have made 4 Japanese quilts. Japanese textiles are one of my very favorites!

  355. Barbara Mims says:

    None – have mainly been doing traditional quilts. Recently attended an art quilt show using a lot of embroidery, and would love to try a project using Japanese fabric. Wishing myself luck!

  356. Nicole Sender says:

    I have a few yards of Japanese fabric. I would definitely love to add to my stash the lovely fabric offered. I also have wanted to try sewing with sashiko thread!

  357. Marti says:

    These comments are as rich and varied as the Japanese fabrics, fun to read. I made a quilt top from Yukata fabrics I picked up at the Indigo exhibit at SAAM. I have a couple dozen silk kimono pieces from the Sakura festival at Brooklyn Botanical garden, and several yards of Japanese fabrics and Japanese-inspired prints.

  358. Mary Ann says:

    I have about a dozen fat quarters and two packages of vintage kimono scraps.

  359. Trudy says:

    At least 5 boxes

  360. Susan Muramoto says:

    at least 15 yards of Asian fabric in my stash

  361. Michelle Parnes says:

    Never enough! At one time I did some Sashiko machine quilting. I’m ready for more! Thanks

  362. Karen says:

    Never even gave thought to Japanese quilting fabric! Awesome patterns !

  363. cindy lewis says:

    I have none. So I need some!

  364. cindy says:

    Lovely owls for a new baby woodland theme quilt or wall hanging. Thank you.

  365. Rosalind Gutierrez says:

    I have one collection of Japanese fabric and love the owl quilt fabric.

  366. cindy says:

    I would love to win this owl fabric to use as a gift. The woodland theme is very popular for babies gifts and I would like to make something for a babies room. Thanks for the giveaway.

  367. J Murrett says:

    2 yds. That I’m still not sure how I will use it….

  368. Cheryl Sunderland says:

    I just discovered Japanese fabrics at the joe Retreat this month so I now have about 4 yards in my collection!

  369. Karen Dustrude says:

    I had to laugh at the question, “How much Japanese fabric do you have in your stash?” Not enough!!! Rather than count the piles of fabric and calculate yardage, I simply weighed it. 20.5 pounds! All of it beautiful and just waiting for the day when I am brave enough to cut into it!

  370. Nanc Ekiert says:

    I have about 20 yards but unfortunately most of it is too pretty to cut…..

  371. Thank you for this opportunity! I have an antique obi of my mother-in-law’s and some framed embroidered silk linens that I found at auctions. But, truly, the correct answer is, “not nearly enough!”!

  372. Lee Ellsworth says:

    Love the repeating fans

  373. cindy says:

    I would like to see and feel this unique fabric.
