Tokyo International Great Quilt Show - part 6

There was no Miniature section at the show but there was a Framed Quilts category, which seems more versatile in many ways.

Quilts in this section reflected a lot of the materials, techniques and designs of the larger pieces, like this sashiko stitched piece.

Some were very pictorial.

On the whole, abstraction seemed to be the more popular approach.

We liked the Japanese trains panel, even if the composition isn't as impressive as many of the other pictures.

Glyn's favourite was pieced from vintage Japanese aizome indigo dyed fabrics, in tiny pieces.

Gourds with sashiko details.


More aizome.

A design based on warabi (a kind of mountain vegetable) was another favourite.

Mags, he loves all the boro look! That's the next thing he wants to get into. He's got some worn out bits of denim with nice rips as a starting point.
