Tokyo Quilt Festival – Day 3

After our visit to the gardens this morning we had a rest and returned so the festival to see the final sections of quilts. We will have to return over the next couple of days to do the market stalls….we must need something!!

Here are the final quilts including the Best of Show Category’s. Again the lighting is not good, shadows from the stands etc make it difficult to photograph.

Grand Prix First Prize


Grand Prix Second Prize

Hand Making Award

Sewing Machine Making Award

We then returned to the category quilts to see the final three sections. Here are some of the quilts we saw.

Framed Quilt Category



3 Popular Quilters Arrive in Japan Category
Di Ford – Australia

Cecile Franconia – France

Tone Finnanger – Norway

New Quilts by Japanese Artists Category





And finally this quilt seemed to be the most popular quilt from the viewers. It has taken us 3 days to get the opportunity to photograph it. The quilt features 1500 individual ladies dressed in traditional kimonos. 60 across and 25 down. Each was perhaps 4 x 2 inches in size and colour graduated down the quilt.

I hope you have enjoyed the quilts, even if it is not your thing! We plan to get out and see some more of Tokyo now so hopefully the weather stays good.
