Kawa by Debbie Maddy for Moda

Debbie Maddy is a nationally known pattern designer, teacher, and Shibori stitching/Indigo dyeing instructor. Debbie has studied in Japan and abroad to become an expert instructor as well as designer in the art of Shibori stitching and Indigo dyeing.

Her original Shibioi stitching and dyeing designs have been produced by Moda. We have carried every collection she has done. We just received Kawa, her newest collection.

If her designs are new to you, take a look at some of the fabrics from her previous collections. They all work so well together to give you a great variety.

We also have fabrics from Yukata. These fabrics feature beautiful block designs. The addition of brown tones to these fabrics make them almost irrestible.

Can’t decide what to make? We made the Popsicle Sticks quilt by Atkinson Designs which uses the 2 1/2″ strip packs, the pattern and binding.

The “kit” we have is for a 64″ x 80″ throw and contains two strip rolls, the pattern and binding.

You will need to order 5 yards of your favorite piece for the backing of this size.

For a Full Size: 80″ x 96″, order 3 strip rolls, pattern, 3/4yd for binding and 7 1/2 yds for the backing.

For a Queen Size: 96″ x 112″, order 4 strip rolls, pattern, 1 yard for the binding, and 9 yds for the backing.

For a King Size: 112″ x 112″, order 5 strip rolls, pattern, 1 yard for the binding and 10 yards for the backing.

For questions, call me…. Kathy .. 830-896-8088.

We are fortunate enough to have a place for Debbie to have her dyeing retreat. A warehouse with air conditioning! Here are a few pictures from her recent trip here. Enjoy a picture of Debbie admiring the work of one of her students and then a group shot of the gals who spent 3 1/2 days with Debbie creating beautiuful designs.
