Welcome to Kallisti Quilts!

For over 20 years, I have been specializing in Japanese and African cotton fabrics for quilting and other sewing projects. I work from a small home studio and ship worldwide.

Custom orders for fabric bundles, quilt kits and finished quilts are always welcome.  New Japanese fabric lines arrive continually throughout the year, so my website is updated daily! Some of the latest arrivals are shown here, but for sneak previews, you can follow me on social media and/or sign up for my newsletter below.

Japanese Traditional Prints

Kallisti Quilts was privileged to consult on the expansion of Sevenberry's long standing and very popular collection of traditional quilt prints. The addition includes 16 small scale prints in various shades of dark blue.

Japanese Linen Prints

From Sevenberry and Handworks, Kallisti Quilts has curated an introductory collection of modern cotton/linen blend prints.  They are light to medium weight and appropriate for quilting, apparel and accessories.

Tanzanian Batiks

A surprise shipment of Tanzanian Batiks recently arrived. These stunning fabrics are hand printed, hand dyed and fairly traded. Yardage of each design is limited, so shop soon for best selection!

The "washed" Japanese Dobby series is now complete! Along with five solids, Kallisti Quilts recently received the seven remaining Hemp Leaf and Patchwork prints in this very popular collection.

Japanese Traditional Prints

Kallisti Quilts recently received a large shipment containing some old favourites, including three dragonfly prints in multiple colour ways. Other designs back in stock are popular Hemp Leaf and Well Curb variations.

Japanese Dobby Solids

Kallisti Quilts now has all five Japanese Dobby Solids in the Washed series.  These new etchy solid colours are useful apart from their companions and perfect for backgrounds and sashings.  The worn or "washed" look instantly antiques your quilt, infusing it with life and movement.

Adding to a small but important Japanese Dobby Print collection, six new traditional designs in my best selling colour - blue - are now available, including Maple Leaf, Seven Treasures, Well Curb, Shibori Dot, Chrysanthemum and Tortoise Stitch.

Yoko Saito Quilting Prints

Yoko Saito's long awaited 26th Centenary Collection of quilting prints is now here! There are six new designs in a variety of lovely colours and neutral shades. While we anticipate Yoko Saito's 27th collection, arriving later this fall, you can start building your stash now.
