Featured Quilt - You Are Never Too Young to be an Artist

You can become an artist at any age and Hiroko Miyama's granddaughters are just that, Little Artists.

The quilt by Hiroko Miyama with Masanobu Miyama "was inspired by pictures of Natsumi and Fuyuka, my granddaughters. Their butterflies and flowers were also embroidered and popped into the wall paper."

Using many techniques including fusible appliqué, digitized embroidery, and fabric dyeing, this adorable quilt was featured at the International Quilt Festival in Houston 2021.
