potd - New Sarasa

The annual Patchwork Shop Hop starts today (see post below) so I'll be expecting a lot of quilters in the shop over the next few weeks. Our  kimono fabrics are well suited to non-traditional and art quilts but we do stock a range of new Japanese cotton quilting fabrics for traditional quilting as well.
This is my favourite new cotton in the shop at the moment - it's lovely and soft with a quite open weave.  The design is  based on traditional Japanese 'sarasa',  which in turn were based on printed cottons imported from India as far back as the 17th century.
