One of the special exhibits in this year's show was "In Praise of Molas - Fumiko Nakayama". This wonderful exhibit consisted of the complete works of Ms. Nakayama and some smaller works by her students.
This art form comes from the Guna people in Panama.
Queenie, my quilt show partner of the day was carrying a gorgeous mola bag that she made. Many people stopped her to comment on it. Unfortunately the photo I took of her with it was not clear. Please go to her blog to see a photo of her bag!

I attended the Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival several weeks ago and I still haven't gotten my photos organized. I'm really going to work on them this week!
My friend, Queenie, who blogs at Queenie's Needlework met me at the metro station and we went together to the show at the Tokyo Dome.
Today's pictures are only the overall winners, but I will be back in a couple of days with more photos!
