I'm so thankful to the team of TheQuiltShow and Alex Andersen and Ricky Tims for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the IMQE. It is a first time for me and I had lot of worries. I took the inspiration for my quilt from the artwork of Japanese artist Jayoi Kusama. I’m so impressed with her talent and energy. Being a person who has got a technical education the tradition patchwork is always more common to me, but this quilt inspired by Japanese art I mostly used the hand sewing techniques such as: hand applique, hand embroidery and hand quilting. The working process impressed me so much. When my quilt was ready I’ve got news that my partner canceled her participation in the project and I was very disappointed. But now I’m so happy to find another American quilt friend to be able to show and present my quilt. Thanks to IMQE I’ve got an unforgettable experience of quilting, creativity, communication and support.
