Symphony of Colors: Japanese Quilts

Quilts came to Japan at the end of 1970 as a new hobby from America. Since then, the Japanese quilters have developed their own style using traditional fabrics and motifs.  We are fascinated by the meticulous applique and quilting, which we've tried to capture in close-up photos. Each of these quilts is more than 6 feet across, which gives you an idea of the amount of work involved in these creations.  This is part 2 of a two-part series.

Please note: We're continually posting free patterns on Twitter!  Check us out @QuiltInspire

We're also selling beautiful quilt books at low prices on e-Bay !
