The quilt I saw made of this fabric was a large tumbler tessellated quilt design. It was beautiful in its simplicity and in the richness of the traditional Japanese fancy yarn-dyed Daiwabo taupe fabrics used. It has now been several years since I saw this quilt and became enamored with this fabric, but I have learned that "where there is a will there is a way"! I do believe that there is a fabric genie that makes our fabric dreams come true. Only a year ago I wrote about the mother-load of wool fabrics that were almost gifted to me following an estate sale and just recently the same thing happened with a lesser, but still significant stash of Daiwabo taupe fabrics!
Someone on sewitsforsale.com *was "getting real" about her fabric stash and decided to sell off much of it, thus starting my own collection of Daiwabo taupe fat quarters at less than half price!! I then found a wonderful on-line retail fabric store, One World Fabrics (https://www.oneworld fabrics.com) that sells Asian Natural/Taupe fabrics along with other special textiles from all over the world and so I am carefully adding bits to my collection by shopping their discounted close out sales. I even found discounted Japanese quilt books through both of these sites as well as at our local Joann's Fabric Store (using my monthly discount coupons) along with the heavy plastic tumbler quilt stencil that I had wanted but was unaffordable at full price!
* Note that recently sewitsforsale experienced some computer glitches and so it may take a few days to get their total offerings back up on line.
