I would like to share some more of what we saw at the quilt show - it was amazing and inspirational. There were so many quilts, too many to blog about, so I have decided to focus on just a few in each blog post. The quilts in this post have a modern feel to them and are bright.
This quilt was in the original design category, it does not have a name in English characters, nor do I know the quilter. It involves several piecing and quilting techniques - it has courthouse steps, paper piecing, and appliqué.
The paper pieced elephant and seal was one of my favourite blocks in the quilt.
Here is a close up of the steps. One of things we really noticed about the Japanese style, was the blocks had not been pressed into submission and as a result the quilt blocks had a 3D aspect to them.
Also adore the bird with the musical note in it's mouth.
This quilt had embroidery and appliqué.
And lastly for this post, Square Font. I love text fabric and this quilt with all the pixelated letters by Kumiko Fujita was amazing. Kumiko is a quilt artist, quilt book author and textile designer. She designed the First of Infinity range for Lecien which I loved so much.
And a close up...I love the Alphabet Song fabric that has been included (I bought some while I was in Japan, shhhh don't tell).
