I have long been fascinated by the accuracy and minute piecing that so many Japanese quilters achieve. It was therefore really interesting to get up close to a collection of amazing pieces created by
The impact created by this quilt was huge. It shone off the wall and created such a strong abstract image to marvel over. Close up what struck me was the really small size of each of the pieced elements and the relative weight of the fabric used. It looked like it was constructed from a fairly coarse linen.
From a distance this quilt seems completely three dimensional! What was also amazing was the different sizes of the pieces which could only have been formulated on graph paper or its CAD equivalent.
Now, I admire the design and workmanship, but I do not aspire to imitate! I recognise my own lack of skill and patience.
