I just can't figure out why something lasting only three days is called "Quilt Week"! I came very close to missing this one. Included in Thursday dinner guests, was a good family friend of the family who wanted to meet up with my son while he is in town. He happened to ask me if I had been to the quilt show in Yokohama. Huh? He had seen the signs advertising the show the day before.
Since all day Saturday I would be teaching Scout leaders in the nature parts of Introduction to Outdoor Leadership, there was only Friday morning left and that was tight because of a Cub pack meeting in the evening.
I rushed off to see as much as I could of the show.
I have been attending every year since the beginning and this year's exhibit seemed to be the best so far. There was much more room to walk around so that people were not crammed up against the quilts Also there were more areas where photographs were allowed.
This butterfly quilt by Kikuko Miawaki was just inside the entry.
I thought this house by Kazuko Kida was interesting.
The labels were all in Japanese but most of them had the quilter's name in Roman lettering.
The quilter,I think, Sanae Takata.
It could have been Suwa-san who made this one. I took notes in the border of me floor-plan map while I was walking and it is a bit hard to figure out.
The handwork was very detailed and I love the kasuri background.
My sweet garden by Kako Kusamoto.
All in blue and white was striking. I think those quilts against the colored walls were winners. If this one wasn't, it should have been.
Stay tuned, I still have a few more pictures stored in my files.
