My Favorite Collection by Yoko Saito for Lecien Fabrics

 

Yoko Saito is an amazing textile artist, specializing in applique, taupe and wonderfully textured fabrics. Her latest collection, called “My Favorite Collection“, is reminiscent of a forest that is warm and natural; bark, woodlands, wheat and leaves.

yoko saitoSince purchasing  this fabric, I’ve spent quite a bit of time looking at her work online — Pinterest in an amazing source of inspiration. Head over to the board maintained by Wendy Cole to see the work done from her fabric, patterns and books.

 

 

 

 

And I was able to pick up the remaining six bolts of Hollyhock Cottage, a striking but subtle fabric collection from the Australian designer Lynette Anderson. Similar to Yoko Saito, Lynette also concentrates on applique, simple piecing and basic embroidery. Hollyhock Cottage is a collection of large and small prints in chocolate brown, petrol blues, teals and taupes. And an ivory or snow Kona solid, and you’ve got  great collection for a throw for your den.

I’m looking forward to playing with these two collections and maybe, just maybe, trying my hand at applique!

What about you? What would you make with these fabics?
