Mitsuko Kinoshita used old Japanese fabrics handed down to her, such as tsumugi, chirimen, meisen, and obi fabrics, as well as modern fabrics, such as silk, velvet, polyester and metallics, to express her theme of "From Japanese Tradition to Modern Sensibility" in her quilt, Joint. Interestingly, it's difficult to discern the older fabric from the new.

Joint by Mitsuko Kinoshita of Ota-Shi, Gunma, Japan was featured in the Abstract, Large category at Houston 2019.
