Nani IRO 2011 Anniversary Fabric Collection

This beautiful quilt was made by Jade in two of the new Nani IRO double gauze fabrics, Japanese Fuccra Blush and Colorful POCHO Pink Shimmer Double Gauze. Both of these fabrics are from the Nani IRO 2011 Anniversary Collection which celebrates the 10th Anniversary of Naomi Ito's exquisite japanese designs. I love how Jade has used the lighter Japanese Fuccra double gauze for the exterior of her quilt and the inside the thicker 'new' medium weight Pocho double gauze for added warmth. These two fabrics also team up beautifully for a quilt! Stop by Jade's lovely blog thejadeleaf for some wonderful inspiration!

Over the weekend we have uploaded the majority of the Nani IRO 2011 Collection but are still anxiously awaiting just a couple more pieces. It always seems like such a long wait for Nani IRO fabrics but we are never disappointed when they arrive on the doorstep and we all enjoy touching and grabbing a little for our own sewing projects. I have plans for a dress and a skirt with a couple of beautiful designs from this collection. This new range is a rather large one and includes some of the softest knits you have ever felt as well as stunning designs on double gauze and lovely linen blends. There is even a couple of beautiful textured cottons here and here.

I will finish this post with a couple of our favourite designs in this collection, which I assure you was a hard task to pick!

Colorful POCHO Knit Dusty Pink

Fuccra Rakuen Rose on Caramel Double Gauze

Fuccra Rakuen Ink Blue Linen Blend

Fuwari Fuwari Soft Jade Double Gauze

Japanese Fuccra Deep Green Double Gauze
SAAAA SAAA Stripe Grey Double Gauze
Painting MUJI Deep Sea Linen Blend
 This is such a wonderful collection that we do plan to take a few of these designs to the Melbourne Craft & Quilt Fair which begins on the 27th July but they will be available all this week in our store and of course we will bring back what we do not sell at the show.

We hope you enjoy sewing with Nani IRO fabrics as much as we do and dare to share your creations with us!
