Tokyo Int’l Quilt show at the “Thunderdome!”

The intensity at yesterday’s Tokyo Int’l Quilt Show made it’s location in the Tokyo Dome feel more like the Thunderdome! Teaming hoards of quilters descended on the show in a mad crush to see the latest efforts by both famous and student quilters alike. The crowds were so thick we were all elbow to elbow and simply walking down the aisle was like a bumper car ride at the county fair.


Vendor booths were filled with fabrics and supplies in every shape and color a fiber artist could possibly need. Attendees crowded in and consumed the wares like locusts. I picked up a few lovely ocean colored and themed fabrics for my Tako Life zakka projects and a locker hook for unique crochet work.

We were able to take photographs of most of the quilt work on display so I’ll let the photos show you how amazing these quilts are.

Special Thank You to my friend Lobin for a wonderful Tokyo Day Out =)

Published by Studio Deanna Welcome! I’m Deanna, a metals & fiber artist creating sculptures and wall art installations. My work is very tactile, 2D & 3D textiles and often takes organic forms inspired by our natural planet. My international experiences have provided the opportunity to swim in the gorgeous tropical waters around Hawai’i, hiking in the rainforests of Far North Queensland, and the breathtaking beauty in Africa. Utilizing my custom-made steel tools, my favorite pieces to create are large-gauge wire crochet sculptures. My meticulously handcrafted designs will enrich your office, home, and outdoor living spaces. Currently I am dividing my time between the Tokyo Bay Area and Hawai’i and am open for commission art works.
