Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2018 - Part 1

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!

Japan Quilt Grand Prix First Place—Masako Sanada

Japan Quilt Grand Prix Second Place—Chiharu Katsuragawa

Friendship Award—Chikako Akashi

Good that you did not only get a picture of the quilts but also of the official in his suit, white gloves, and face mask. Influenza time in Tokyo!

How fantastic! I would love to visit one of the big Japanese quilt shows. The photos always look amazing, and it seems the standard of work is very high. Thanks for sharing your photos with us!

Gosh, what wonderful quilts!
Now tell me, do they wear masks because they have the flu? No, I guess it must be so they don’t catch it, is that right?
How super that you met up with Queenie! Were you in her photos? If so, I didn’t realise she meant you when she named her friends. How super!
