A quilt by Sarah Nishiura

84.5" x 92.5"

Like the arms of a praying mantis, the blue shapes in this quilt grow and contract with focus and geometric precision. The greens are the garden where the insect lives, dark but with flickers of light.

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. Sarah’s work explores and celebrates the infinite possibilities of geometric design. Her quilts have been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally, and are included in private, corporate and public art collections throughout the US.
