I thought you might enjoy a few more pictures from the Team Quilt Ten. This show was held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Theater in Ikebukuro. in the fifth floor exhibition gallery. I had been to the concert hall a number of times and didn't even realize they had a gallery. I am more likely to remember when this space was a vast field where we could run with the kids and dog.
Here is "Life, Shine!" by Taeko Shinosaki (or zaki) . She has used lots of embroidery and fine quilting to give this quilt lots of texture. Notice the congratulatory bouquet down in front.
Below is one more of her works.
Here is another amazing piece. This is by Megumi Mizuno. Each of these appliqued wheat grains is braided of three fabrics. To the right, above the flower arrangement, is a quilt calendar that features this masterpiece.
Below are two more of her quilts.
All three have tons of detail and there is quite a variety between them.
Next are two quilts by Chiyoko Umeda. . The first is called "Spring Breeze"
Then, below, two more quilts by Chieko Shiraishi. Hers was the quilt with the doilies I showed in the earlier post. This, too has crocheted pieces.
This "Around the World" by Tsuneko Shimura has plenty of detail to look at.,, not just the tiny piecing but embroidery and embellishments.
I see I have only eight out of the nine quilters represented. I thought I was getting a better representation. I did get one more quilt without remembering to write down the information. That one is seen below.
All the quilts were nicely hung and spaced. The I took photos without a flash but I think a professional photographer could have showed them better. Spotlights show texture to advantage but there was just so much detail that couldn't be caught.
Yesterday was "Girl's Day". I put out my doll festival runner but spent all day after church out with the boys.
We used the power tools and had a "rough cut day" for making pinewood derbies. Then, I came home and had dinner of traditional festival food with my husband and two other guys. Even in the Church choir I sit with the guys because I sing tenor. So much for girls day!
