Tokyo Quilt Festival – Day 2

Well, we really have seen some very special quilts today. Again the dome was crowded with eager shoppers and onlookers.


Here are some of the amazing quilts we saw today. It has been interesting to be inspired, even enthralled, by quilts not normally in our colour palette or design.

Unfortunately the light has not been kind to some of the quilts but you will be able to see the details on most of them.

Traditional Quilt Winners.
Most of the quilts have been hand stitched and hand quilted.

And finally Yoko Saito has a display of some quilts and gorgeous little houses.

I think we may need a day of rest tomorrow!!

    Wow! What amazing work. I think my favourite is the red check bonbons in the original design category.

    Awesome. We bought a wall hanging in Takayama in the hills. Simple design but the stitching is so precise and beautiful. So many to love!! Enjoy the well deserved rest.
