Welcome to our Exhibition at Hankyu Umeda Main Store in Osaka

Our quilt exhibit on the 9th floor of Hankyu Umeda Main Store located in the center of Osaka from June 5th through 7th.

We rented a big truck to transport 70-80 quilts that Masako's students in Tokyo made and decorations such as a bed, tables, chairs and antiques that she had bought in the US and Europe. While we were loading everything, a passer by asked us if we were moving.
It sure looked like we were.

Hankyu Umeda Main Store had been renovating their building for the past 7 years and it was finally finished last fall. We rented a huge hall that was really beautiful! It was the first time a quilt exhibition had been held there.

As you can see, our students take quilting seriously and consider it a labor of love.

Here is a selection of quilts from the exhibition .

An exquisite Baltimore Album quilt. It was well quilted, although time consuming.
But that's why it looks gorgeous.

This quilt was inspired by a trip to Germany.

This quilt is a fine example of mixed crochet and piecing.

Beautiful patterns. If you look closely, you will notice many sequins on the edges of this quilt.

Amish quilt. A reflection of the Amish lifestyle, this consists of solid fabrics.

In addition to enjoying the quilts, we had workshops about dried flower arrangements, eco craft, quikts and cartonnage.

CRIB QUILT continues to support Campaigns which raise awareness of breast cancer and  some doctors and volunteer groups gave talks.

Each day Masako told the stories about behind the quilts.

I went upstairs to take pictures looking down the hall.
They looked like a miniature house.

We are so grateful to our wonderful and dedicated students whose hard work made this exhibition such a success. 

I hope you enjoyed our exhibition!
