Kazue Tsukayama injured her arm 20 years ago and wasn't able to quilt for a year. She found this quilt from that time and finished it. She must have healed quite nicely as this is a hand pieced, hand appliquéd, and hand embroidered masterpiece.

Distant Memory by Kazue Tsukayama of Kaga City, Ishikawa, Japan was featured in the Balanced Piecing and Appliqué category at Houston 2019.

Beautiful. I would like to see the back of some of these quilts. How does the decorative stitching look on the back.

Know after twenty years that you are relishing your achievement. And such a blessing that you were able to get it finished.

I really like the use of a chain embroidery stitch around many of the areas. And the stitches are so even and flowing. Thank you for sharing with us.
