Fabric Inspirations


By Nicole Fallon

ASIAN prints are available in a number of types of fabric for your inspiration and sewing pleasure. My personal favourite to work with is quilting cotton. Quilting cotton is a high-quality, durable fabric that allows vivid colours and even metallic accents. It is lovely to sew with because it doesn’t fray much and it presses up beautifully with an iron.

You can find an abundance of quilting cottons with Asian themes online, for example on eBay or Etsy. A few examples of fabric manufacturers that tend to have Asian lines are Moda, Hoffman, Robert Kaufman, and Kona Bay. Kona Bay makes Asian designs almost exclusively.

This is just a preview. To read and see more, buy a copy of Asian Traditions in print or digital format.
