While at Quilt Market last month, of course we stopped by the Kiyohara booth to see the newest Kayo Horaguchi madness/amazingness, and sadly they did not have fabric samples out in time for the show.
BUT! Never fear, intrepid readers - samples have been released and I went to take pictures of them! I have to say - if Yoshiko Jinzenji is my favorite 'sophisticated' fabric designer, then Kayo is definitely my current favorite for 'whimsical' and 'hallucinatory', as you can see by the pictures below.
This one is called 'Sugar Plum', and all the animals have forks! FORKS!
These two have much more subtle coloring, but they are so beautiful - I'm making dresses in my head.
All of this fabric will be arriving late August, so keep your eyes peeled on the website! And stay tuned for the second installment of our normal Quilt Market coverage, posting in a few days.
