In this last post about the Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2016 I will show an odd selection of pictures.
First is a detail of one of the framed quilts:
'From now on, enjoy' by Kayoko Kubo＊「これから楽しみ」久保佳代子
This was my absolute favourite:
'A gentle moment' by Ms Itoh (whose first name is read in either of these ways: Hiroko, Sachiko, Yoshiko or Masako, I think)＊「優しいひととき」伊藤祐子
Isn't the quilt design just perfect?
Here is a quilt I liked, with the moon reflected in water:
made by Chizuko Takiyama＊「水画(みなもも)の月」瀧山千津子
As you can see, this is not a quilt.
It is paper poster for a 'poster quilt', featuring none other than Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit.
So why does it say 'poster quilt' and Yoko Saito?
Well, Yoko Saito and her group so successfully made the Moomin quilts two years ago. This year they took up the challenge of making quilts for 'The World of Peter Rabbit' to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Ms Potter's birth.
Yoko Saito, herself, made this quilt:
and it was featured on the official poster for the quilt show
Pretty good, don't you think?
To see more quilts from Beatix Potter's designs, check out Michelle Hill's report.
I end this report with a quilt called
'Kiitos' by Chikako Ueno＊上野知佳子
Kiitos is Finnish and means Thank you.
Chikako Ueno is a master quilter and apart from wall quilts makes beautiful bags (you can see one on the floor). She is a friend of my friend Julie, and told me she got the Finnish Marimekko fabric used in this wall quilt from a friend in Finland.
Talking of friends, Tanya made me this beautiful tatted bookmark.
So on this note of friendship I leave you with a big 'Kiitos' for reading my report.
PS. Tanya has just posted lots of beautiful photos of Log Cabin quilts. Don't miss them!
