Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2019 - Partnership Quilt project - House


This is the block I made for the Partnership QuiltProject in 2005, when the theme was School House. 


It is time to make a quilt block for NHK's Partnership Quilt Project at Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2019, to be held in Tokyo Dome in January next year.

More information can be found on the official website. Sorry only in Japanese.

Under the tag NHK, above, you can read about this project and see my previous entires.

The theme this time is HOUSE.

In tonight's TV program and on the website, the suggestions are many and free. 
When I discussed the theme with a friend I reflected that there are a lot of different houses - human dwellings or workplaces - igloos, tents, tree houses, dollhouses, churches, garden sheds, bird houses, garages, summer houses, shops, log cabins, boat houses, house boats, or houses on stilts, temples, sand castles, caravans, corner shops, telephone booths, and why not a band stand in the park or a bus shelter…. I mean a bus shelter is often the only house a homeless can find to ‘live' in.  
Then there are the parts of a house - Santa stuck in the chimney, a cat in the window, an open and welcoming door, the ruined remains of a castle or a heap of plank being what is left of a house destroyed by the tsunami, or a heavily graffitied wall...

The rules are, 
  • size 15x15 cm + seam allowance of 1-2 cm
  • no quilting,
  • name in lower right corner,
  • enclose a self addressed 62yen postcard, if you live in Japan and want to know in which quilt your block has been added
  • DEADLINE: 31st JULY 2018, when the block must have reached NHK
  • send to:

    1. I like the idea, but last time was Tree of Life so, I think it will be a tree-less block....

  5. That's a fun project.
    Let's see, how about a mouse house or Little House
    on the Prairie, or a log cabin block?

    1. I am sure there will be hundreds, if not thousands of Log cabin blocks (should I expect to find one of yours there?).
      A mouse house, hm....
      Little House on the Prairie, well yes, it is tempting, but I want to add the Swedish flag and that would look a bit odd on the prairie, unless the house owners are immigrants from Sweden....
      I'll have to give this a think!

  6. I am still sorting through multiple ideas ... maybe a postman-cardinal, delivering a package of seeds to a bird house. Hmmm.

    1. That's a charming idea! You always make your cardinals do all sorts of work!

  7. Thank you for the information. So far I am not inspired. Houses in patchwork only bring up one image in my mind. Oh dear... whatever shall I do?!

    1. You are creative and will come ump with an idea. There is of course the most obvious house of all, The House of God.
