2019 tokyo quilt festival: details

By Patricia Belyea

TOKYO JP  There are two major aspects to quilt design—the overall composition and the close-up details. Here’s a post filled with only the eye-candy of quilt details for this year’s Tokyo Quilt Festival. Enjoy!

[The above quilt is by Keiko Goke.]

When it comes to details, this quilt takes the prize. In fact it won one of the Heartwarming Awards.
