I always admire the work of Japanese quilters. I enlarge the photos and wonder even more. So unique!
Another group of stunning quilts. I know there is a lot of work in each but the 'Towards a beautiful future' amazes me for the size of each hexagonal. I loove the cat tote and Rie Kato's party bag.It must be extremely difficult to find winners from these quilts.
What a great show and such beautiful photos! I've been so busy I haven't even had a chance to look at my photos and do a post about the the show. Maybe tomorrow.....
so many wonderful quilts and bags loving the first one such beautiful applique and the border is so amazing. Would love the cat bag but knowing Helen she would pinch it
Yes, there were some fantastic ones this year.
The hexagon quilt was not only large, it hung straight, too. They have a tendency to warp, but this one was perfect.
Do read Tanya and Julie's posts, too. It is like revisiting the show! Eagerly waiting for yours, but do let the wrist tell you when it is time to write!
Yes, I agree. The first one is one of my favorites, too.You would have to make TWO kitty bags then! Basically it is the clamshell pattern with added ears.
I took pictures of some of those same quilts but haven't been able to figure out the names of the quilters.
I love, love, love seeing your posts from the Tokyo Quilt Show each year. I don't think I could even begin to choose a favorite. It was delightful to read through your posts and admire the beautiful work. Thank you for sharing! I also love seeing the NHK quilts - and the Swedish flag makes yours so easy to identify! It looks like you were in great company at the show. :)
I am not 100% certain of how to write the names in Roman letters - especially the given names can often be pronounced in many different ways. The only consolation is that most JAPANESE have trouble too, to read names!If we had more time at the show we could ask a person standing nearby to read out the names! Or we should ask for a personal guide from NHK to do it, then they will realize what trouble we are having.
Which of the many unique and beautiful quilts to photograph is a hard choice every year.More blog posts coming up. I hope you will enjoy them, too.
the quilts are too beautiful for words. thanks for the details too.
I certainly stood speechless in front of several of them!
