Big Tokyo Weekend - Quilt Show #4 NHK Partnership Quilts

I first learned about the NHK Partnership Quilts from a blogger known as Queenie.  She has been participating in this worthwhile cause since 2004 and always includes a Swedish flag in her blocks.  

I made blocks in 2013, 2014, and 2016, which were for quilts the following year in January.  There is a theme every year, this year is the love of gardening.  The quilts are raffled off and the money raised goes to charity.

I was very happy to attend the show and see the quilts for myself this year.  Here is my block:

Yellow Hexagon flowers

There were many quilts and I only took photos of a few of the quilts and a few of the interesting individual blocks.

I love the joy, color, and creativity of these quilts composed of unique little blocks. I think Chuck Nohara is their grandmother!

Oh, this is such a good selection of Partnership quilts. You have shown how many blocks there are in each quilt and how subtle the shading of the background is. I often missed that at the show, standing too close.
Let's take part again next year. I wonder what the theme will be!?

Such beautiful quilts. It's interesting to see the nature themes in the designs :)

I hadn't realized that Japan a homeless problem, but as you say it makes sense with the economy and the natural disasters in the last decade.
