Many blocks make quilt work

Beautiful, no?

An Autumn Breeze (78″ x 80″) 2009, by Akiko Kuwata of Osaka, Japan. A subtle, pieced background shows off red leaves and flowers to their best advantage in this original design. Kawata’s quilt includes machine piecing, hand piecing, and machine quilting.

Text and photo from Quilter’s Newsletter June/July 2012, from the article about the ‘Hands All Around’ exhibit, sponsored by Quilters Newsletter, at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, which featured the best of contemporary quilts from around the world.

Of the 15 quilts shown in the article, this, and 1 other, particularly caught my eye, so I thought I would share.


Salut! :-) I'd love to hear from you, and all replies are appreciated.
