- Yukie Indigo Michael Miller Fabrics. There's a more than hint of woven Ikat inspiration in this print. Quilting cotton although you can see it made up in a man's shirt on the Michael Miller website.
- Cat Vintage Playing Cards by Cosmo Tex. More stubby texture and a glorious colour and print.
- Cityscape barkcloth from Hokkoh. Slubby weighty cotton, great for bags, cushions and garments with a bit of structure. I made a barkcloth skirt- see here.
- Meadow, Pink Orange, The Lovely Hunt, Lizzie House. Deep saturated colour in this Lizzie House print on quilting cotton
- Maritime knit top (excellent pattern, hopefully fit my review in next week) from the gold version of this and it washes up beautifully in the machine.
- Double Gauze, Komorebi Blue Nani Iro by Naomi Ito for Kokka. Amazing depth of colour in this beauty, Naomi Ito at her endless best.
- Grey Stripe cotton jersey from Kiyohara. Amazing quality fabric- look at the pic close up to get an idea of the weight, it has a bit of heft to it. I've made a Maritime knit top (excellent pattern, hopefully fit my review in next week) from the gold version of this and it washes up beautifully in the machine.
- Cat Vintage Matchbooks by Cosmo Tex. Glorious print on a textured cotton- love the teal background and everything else about it.
- Cotton indigo dot, Robert Kauman. Wide 57" floaty fabric- good for soft drapey effects, scarves or soft tops.

June at Eternal Maker
It's been a busy week- post Brexit moping up of tears (mine, husband and daughter), prom and preparing for a few summer events so I've squeezed this nine-of-the-best post for sponsor Eternal Maker into the last day of June. Summer is currently on hold in the UK, nothing new there, so I've put a mix of garment weight fabrics alongside quilting cottons and naturally, I had to include some double gauze. Enjoy.
