Turning Japanese

Another special guest today at Apatchy with a visit from Hiroe Mogi – the doyenne of all things Japanese.  Hiroe brought beautiful quilts with her to inspire us all. We were all impressed with her paper-pieced log cabins – some in triangles – some that featured sashiko and some with raw edge appliqué. A class seemed to be in order so stay tuned for more information.

Here’s our happy group with Hiroe and one of her wonderful creations:

One thought on “Turning Japanese

  1. Hiroe’s work was inspirational. One problem for finishing a wall hanging solved, fabric and pattern purchased for another bag(!), more sashiko thread for future works purchased, and another date to fill in on the calendar. Who says retirement is boring? I don’t seem to have enough time to make everything I have ideas for to use the fabrics and patterns I have stashed away, some of the penalties of not discovering this addiction until after retirement.
