Report from Houston – Japanese Quilts

Vicki Welsh reporting from the International Quilt Festival in Houston.

This report will highlight quilts from Japan. If you read my blog you know that I love any quilt that has tiny pieces, intricate piecing or quilting or is just plain fiddly. That’s why I am so attracted to quilts from Japan. I notice more and more of them every year and I love every one of them.

Rondo of Roses was inspired by Monet’s roses.

I don’t often notice Japanese quilters entering abstract quilts but Blessings of the Sun was spectacular.

Fields, My Hometown and Flower Calendar were part of a display of prize winning quilts from International Quilt Week in Yokohama 2008.

    I didn’t realize the Japanese have a tradition of quilting. Is it something imported from the West or native to their culture?
