Modern Piecing Using Japanese Quilt Fabrics
Beautiful cotton prints from Japan are beginning to flood into The Sewing Workshop’s studio, and I can’t get enough of them! Since so many of the prints are wide open with large repeats, I found it interesting to think about breaking them up, using pieces and parts of the motifs, and incorporating non-Japanese-type fabrics left over from other projects. Modern piecing Linda-style (meaning I do not have a quilter’s mind or aptitude for traditional piecing).

I love fabrics with sequins, but I don't have tons of opportunities to dress up and wear them for evening. So the idea of pairing a stretch sequin knit fabric with denim to wear to work or a casual event seemed like a natural for me.

The Sewing Workshop was lucky enough to host a great group of garment sewers in Eureka Springs in April for a fun three-day workshop. Several of the participants wanted more detailed instructions on how the pleating was done on left front of this Riveria Shirt made from Japanese cotton.
