Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival - part 9
There were a lot of bags. I wish I'd taken more photos! The ones that appealed to us most were those with more than a hint of boromono.
Also those made in vintage indigo fabrics.
Or those with animal elements - this dog bag was amazing.
We had another site down after seeing the bags, although the plastic flooring laid over the baseball pitch wasn't as tiring to walk on as the thin carpet on solid concrete which is the best that most UK shows manage. This demo was being relayed via several large TV screens - a very good idea. Maybe Festival of Quilts should think of trying this? It is always difficult to make a demo area where more than a handful of quilters can really see what the demonstrator is doing.
