New from Japan

I absolutely love all things Japanese. So over the years I have acquired a few Kimono bolts. Today I received another bolt used for Juban Kimono. It has a beautiful bias pattern of little storks.

If you have no idea what a Juban is, it is the lightweight under Kimono. Kimono bolts are 14″ by 14′. Much smaller than western yardage. A Man’s Juban is typically deep rich earthy colors and woman’s are usually pinks and bright reds. They come in small prints, and I adore the Maple leaves and Sakura blossoms. I use them for a myriad of things, but I plan to use some for quilting. Let’s see where this adventure takes me.
