Daiwabo: The Value of Working with Luxurious Fabric


I know I’m going to sound old when I write this but here we go: They just don’t make fabric like they used to!  The thread count has gotten lower as the price of cotton has gone up.  That’s one of the reasons why I usually work with tightly woven batiks and beautiful silks.

This quilt is made with Japanese Daiwabo fabric made from a long staple cotton. They use the most gorgeous subtle prints on fabric which also has an ultra-luxurious hand. The design is similar to one I was commissioned to make for a customer who wanted something to match her carpet. I love the flowing lines and did a little bit of couching along the seam lines. I also have two sleeves on the back so it can hang both horizontally or vertically as shown.
