Embroidery Contest 2008

Entry # 26

This participant sent in pictures of his Japanese themed quilt. This is his story:
"It is called Japanese Lanterns as the quilt represents strings of paper lanterns as seen at some festivals in Japan tied in a line with red cord. The cream background jacquard cotton fabric was purchased in Barcelona while attending the European Quilt Expo some years ago. The quilt is machine quilted to create the dimensional shape of the ‘lanterns’ which are an octagonal in shape, with additional fabric printed with Japanese images and flowers.
This quilt was made using the Japanese Black Work embroideries, resized using 4D software by Pfaff and stitched on the Pfaff Creative Vision sewing machine and measures 78 inches by 82 inches.
There are 82 embroideries, some mirrored to give variation to the quilt design."

The designs used are from the Geisha Blackwork Sets I and II and Geisha Blackwork Sets III and IV.
