Yuza Sashiko at Great Northern Quilt Show

Here are some photos of the Yuza Sashiko quilters at Great Northern Quilt Show and their trip (so far).

Arriving at Manchester - Reiko Domon is first.

Putting up the sashiko display. They brought some beautiful bags, from Reiko and Chie's second book. And an amazing sashiko parasol!

Ishikawa-san with one of her bags.

Sashiko in the centre of blocks from my "Japanese Quilt Blocks" book (the blocks are reduced in size too).

Stitching sessions -

Reiko Domon's "Genji Monogatari" (The Tale of Genji) won second place in the theme category, Oriental Inspirations -

"Treasures of Yamagata", the quilts they made from our 2006 challenge, which will also be touring to the Scottish Quilt Championships at Edinburgh and the Autumn Quilt Festival at Chilford, before returning to Japan for another exhibition in November.
