Today we continue our selection of quilts recently displayed at the Spring Paducah 2019 show featured as part of The 14th Quilt Nihon Exhibition.
Capt'n John --"This exhibit was a constant surprise to me. With every quilt you had to get closer to realize what amazing work was done. I loved the birds flying...then I realized that this is a log cabin quilt!...then I saw the creative quilting design (on a log cabin?)...then, hey wait -- is this embellished....?
The exhibit is described as:
"Organized by the Japan Handicraft Instructors' Association, the Quilt Nihon Exhibition is one of the most prestigious international quilt contests in Japan. The exhibit features 42 quilts from the "Innovative Traditional" category, which will later be exhibited at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art."
