I got to travel to Tokyo last week with my friend Merikay Waldvogel. SHE made the trip, but sent a lot of photos - a vicarious thrill for a quilter home in snowy Kansas.
Merikay has enjoyed judging the Tokyo Great International Quilt Festival for several years. Her judge’s choice for this year's show is I Love Feedsacks #1.
It's a sentimental choice for a judge from Tennessee - finding feedsacks in a Japanese quilter's work.
Merikay sent a lot of photos - here are a few detail shots I really like.
Merikay treated herself to a manicure before she left. She may have enjoyed that as much as the trip!
