This was a good year with more Miniature quilts than I have seen in a long time.
Let me start with the winner: Akemi Tajima's 'Shoka. Yureru Poppy'
I got a comment from my friend Lis that the quilts were very colourful this year. It is true also about the miniatures so let's ooze out some more orange:
'Sekijitsu' by Kinue Ishigame
'Australia gensan burashi-no-ki wo anata ni puresento' made by Sanae Funabashi
There is embroidery and a tree in the next quilt, too!
'Jingle Bell ga naru toki' by Tomiko Hiramatsu
Many want to celebrate that Mt Fuji has been added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites and here is Taeko Hanae's 'Fujisan 2013'
'Ribbon and ribbon' by Yoshiko Koguchi
'Sensu' by Tomoko Kuniyoshi is in the style of orderly crazy quilt.
Another crazy quilt is my own 'JET BLACK', heavy with TAST stitches. The picture is a bit blurred, but you might have seen better pictures of it when I worked on this quilt last summer, autumn and winter. The last blog entry is here.
'FROM HAWAII' by Yoshiko Kinoshita.
Another summer flower,
'Summer Flower' made by Mariko Hayasaki
Several groups of quilters had made one quilt each on the same theme or design. One set was, what I guess is shadow quilting over a crayoned base fabric. One of the quilts is
'Kibo' by Mariko Tanaka.
'Kibo' means hope so let us hope that there will be another quilt show at Yokohama next November filled with good quilts.
