Indigo, Taupe & More: Japanese Fabric from Vintage to Contemporary

Dana Jones

Sunday, July 8, 2018, 2:00pm—4:00pm

In a whirlwind round of interviews with multiple generations of Japanese quiltmakers, Dana learned a lot about working with Japanese fabrics from indigo to taupe and beyond. She talked with master quilters Kuroha Shizuko, Yoko Seito, Reiko Kato and Keiko Goke. She’ll share stories from each woman with an emphasis on how they select and design fabric. You’ll see images of quilts by each quiltmaker, get to handle Japanese fabrics and think about how U.S. quiltmakers can use Japanese fabrics in our quilts.
