We’re very excited to stock the new collection of Keiko Goke. Modern bold prints paired with a soft poplin it has a beautiful feel and striking patterns. Keiko Goke is a Japanese artist with 40 years experience in the industry. She now produces fabric for Freespirit Fabrics. “I enjoy because fabrics are like paints to me and designing patchwork makes me feel like I am painting my own picture. Such fun!”
Here’s what Keiko has to say about her new collection:
To draw by hand – this is the medium of choice for me when I design my fabrics. Watercolors, crayon and soft tip colored pencils, especially German made LYRA and STABILO, are my favorite drawing tools. I know, my artistic choice will require the mill to put forth extra effort when reproducing my designs, but this is my medium and how I would like to continue as long as I design fabric. I always want to include flower motifs in my collection, which are found as a few pretty and gentle flowers. I also love graphic types of motifs, also in this collection. Designs that I draw, as I like, become printed fabrics delivered to the quilters. I do think it is such a happy thing to do as a job and I made this collection in thanks for that joy.
