Summertime is yukata season, and in the Kimonomomo studio that means getting the dozens of yukata bolts I’ve had hiding on the shelf (some for years) out into the sunshine where I can photograph them in the best light. Here are a few of my favorites, old and new.

This one is a firecracker of a floral. Mixing shadows and light, it pops with bright colors and whispers with sketched lines.
A bit of ice and fire, with a punch of flower power. These blue and red flowers almost look like sea anemones.
Bold bamboo with a background of… even more bamboo. This one is soft and drapes beautifully. I’ve been thinking of some projects I could do with it (which is why I held on to it for so long), but I think it was getting impatient just waiting for me to make up my mind.
Want a little variety? Try making a quilt with these 8 packs of yukata fabrics. Each piece measures on average 13″ long by 14″ wide and the pieces are grouped by theme and color to help you on your way to making a gorgeous quilt or other project.
indigo floral yukata prints – 8 pack
pastel floral yukata prints – 8 pack
This last one is possibly my all-time favorite, at least until the next amazing print comes along! There are so many gorgeous ones to choose from, but I could work with this one all day and not get tired of it.
I hope you find some new favorites of your own from among these and the others I have available right now. Visitors to the studio can dig through the dozens of others available, plus many kimono silk bolts and a wall of wide quilt cotton bolts.
We’ll be working on our next video this week while Thomas has a little time left before school starts, and I have a tiny bit of time before my next show. See you soon!
