Every year, NHK announces a theme for the next year's quilts and collects blocks, which are made into quilts that are raffled off during the festival, with the proceeds going to charity. This year the theme was Tree of Life. A total of 9,141 blocks were collected and made into 60 quilts.

My block incorporated hexagons (as have my past blocks).
Here are a few of the many quilts.

From the website:
Quilt House Yama (1976-2007) launched the quilt boom in Japan. Its founder, Takako Onoyama, built the foundation for Japanese quilt culture. Her efforts, which continued until her death in 2011, included importing quilt fabrics from the USA and inviting artists from overseas.
This exhibit features antique quilts from the 1800s from the collection of Takako Onoyama. In addition, quilt artists Shizuko Kuroha — a former teacher at Yama — and Naoko Shimoda, who works in the Kichijoji area, also show their works.
