Quilt Fesival Part 3: Yoko Saito is kind of a big deal.

As we walk around the festival we saw this quilt and just lost our marbles.

Hand quilting done to perfection.

This is quilting truly elevated to art.

I saw the little Japanese woman and turned to Amie and said "OMG, that's Yoko Saito...and she's kind of a big deal." They were SO SO gracious and allowed us to take pictures of everything. We are filing this into the category of : "Projects to do when we are worthy."

You have to be a genius to take these muted fabrics and produce something so full of life and general uh-may-zing-ness.
This basket quilt (above) is the one that had my applique friends from church geeking out over.

I love the sewing basket in the bottom middle (above).
The woman herself!

That lattice work is not piecing, it is hand applique.

And Amie took all these pictures because honestly I was flipping out too much to even work a camera in this booth. You can see her take on festival this week too at www.fabricwarrior.blogspot.com


  1. Wow. I have never seen anything like that. Absolutely gorgeous. Something be hung in a museum for the masses to enjoy. Just stunning! :o)
    Thank you for sharing with us.
    It is almost like being there. :o)
    Sincerely - Trish

  2. I like the muted effect but am surprised to see so many together. Is this something like an artist having a "blue phase"? Thanks for sharing the show.


Thank you for taking the time to comment!
