Just we thought that we could share some photos of Mariko's stand at Tokyo International Quilt festival in 2010 at Tokyo Dome!
Kimono tapestry and Origami Kimono have been very popular in Japan, too.
Patchwork Mariko in Japan sells more European fabrics, such as Liberty prints and Kafe fasset.
The Liberty tapestry on the wall was also made from a lot of Liberty Tana Lawns..
This conventions run for 9 days. The number of audience hits over 30,000 each day!!
Because this is quilt convention, most of the stands are trading quilting materials, fabrics and craft supplies.
What everyone has been into in Japan (actually quite a while) is Hawaiian quilt. This is a simple applique for a special symmetric design, which could remind us of flowers and trees.
Here is the example of Hawaian quilt.
This festival always give us a good inspiration and makes us creative!
Mariko is very excited to make new quilting bags for AQC in Australia.
