Wow, who'd have thought, a quilt festival in Tokyo! Some very nice ones.

These are still my favorite quilts, though. More info here.

flapjax: I saw those while following my tags. I guess it's a matter of personal preference, since I always prefer the intricate to the abstract.

And a little belatedly: Official site for the quilt festival, where you can see images of the winners.

Ah, not exclusively Japanese quilts. It's an international event. One of the locals in my town shows at this festival. She's not the least Japanese. :)
