Kyoto Collection sale
Gary Bloom at Kyoto Collection is having another of his eBay sales, including some super furoshiki cloths (mainly small sizes but great for quilt/large size cushion panels), including Hokusai's Great Wave, and the excellent and long out-of-print Kyoto Shoin textile book series. I can't recommend these books enough - a great resource and essential addition to your bookshelves if you like Japanese textiles. Think I'll add a few of the smaller furoshiki to my stash this time round :-)
The furoshiki panel used for my quilt of the same name (above) was supplied by Gary - click here to buy the same one (his other large size furoshiki are all suitable for making the quilt above at approximately the same size as the original, or use one of the smaller ones and add the border for a wallhanging).
