Imagine my surprise when I was going through my Bloglines this morning and saw that the purl bee had a post about Yoshiko Jinzenji. Why is this surprising you ask? Well, just last night when I arrived home from Michigan (MI Fiber Fest weekend -- more on that soon!) there was a box *full* of Japanese craft magazines and books waiting for me. (Thanks goodness it didn't rain!!) And there was a whole spread on Yoshiko Jinzenji in the July issue of Quilts Japan. I recoginized the style of quilt and fabric instantly -- she is very unique! -- and that quilt had really struck me when I looked through the book last night. Here's more:
The little lap quilt would certainly be easy to make since the fabric is basically a cheater cloth. The magazine also shows some shirts and pillows made with her fabrics, as well as some other quilts. She also has some more graphic fabrics available that purlsoho doesn't seem to carry. The ones they carry are here.
Other things in the box include, but are not limited to:
Yep, the September issues of Cotton Paint, Cotton Time and Cotton Friend!! I'll have full reviews for you soon. Lots of good stuff here. (I have to get caught up on work after having been away since Friday . But I will take pictures and share -- I promise!)
