Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2018 Partnership Quilt Project

Thanks to Queenie for posting this information on her blog.  I'm posting it again here!  I've made blocks the last few years and finally was able to attend the Quilt Festival for the first time this year.  If you decide to send a block, please let me know so I can look for your when I go to the festival next January!

It is time to make a quilt block for NHK's Partnership Quilt Project at Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2018, to be held in Tokyo Dome in January next year.

More information can be found on the official website.

The theme this time is TREE OF LIFE.

For anyone who wants to send in and donate a block to this charity quilt project, here are the rules:

  • one block per person
  • 15 cm x 15 cm for the motif, add a seam allowance of 1-2 cm on all sides
  • flimsy block, i.e. no wadding, no quilting
  • your name should be written with pen in the seam allowance of the lower right hand corner
  • your block should have reached NHK by 31st July, 2017
  • enclose a note with your name, address, tel no, email address
  • (for entries within Japan) if you also enclose a pre stamped Japanese postcard (62 yen) with your name and address filled in, it will be returned to you with the number of which quilt your block has been added to
  • send to:

NHK Sutekini Handmade

    I'm sure the variations will be amazing.
