A quilt by Sarah Nishiura

92" x 89"

Rather than piecing this in blocks, I built this quilt with wedges constructed from long rows of intricate strip piecing that move step-by-step around increasingly large white blocks. While the white dominates the quilt, the interest is in the thousands of blue, white, and occasionally red pieces that make up the strips that proceed from top to bottom and bottom to top.

100% cotton recycled and new material, machine pieced, hand quilted

Combining original designs with traditional techniques, Sarah Nishiura’s quilts are pieced from 100% cotton recycled and vintage materials, pieced with new yardage, and quilted by hand. Each quilt is one of a kind, suitable for warmth or display.

The quilt comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a custom cotton bag. Shipping and insurance are free to a domestic US address.

A Chicago-based quiltmaker, Sarah Nishiura utilizes traditional techniques to craft quilts out of recycled and vintage materials.
