Wednesday the 21st Jan 2015, saw the four of us board a plane with Japan Airlines, for our flight to Tokyo for the international Quilt festival 2015. DH has company this time with my sister in tow as well as an amazing quilter and good friend, Chris Jurd. DH will be sight seeing with my sister for two days, whilst Chris and I attend the quilt festival. Goodbye 38 degrees heat and hello with a winters blast of two degrees in Tokyo. Our flight was 9 hours and I Was very productive and sewed quite a few diamonds together, on the other hand with Chris stating "she is on holidays, chose to read a book instead of sewing.
The line up of people waiting to enter, the quilt show will cater to a total of 30,000 to 50,000 visitors a day.
Chris in line, waiting for the ticket office to open.
This years theme was Little house on the Pairie, below a replica of the cottage used by Laura Ingalls, note the crowds.
Even the wagon was a patchwork quilt, with fabric grass, apples and prairie dogs.
Below is some of the amazing quilts, that caught my attention.
