"The Denman Kannon" and "Treasures of Yamagata" at Quilts UK
Here is a photo of "The Denman Kannon" (above) and with a detail of the rosettes (below).

The quilt at the top below has a map of Yamagata prefecture stitched with various Yuza sashiko stitches. The shape of the prefecture is thought to look like a man's face in profile!
