International quilt week Yokohama 2009
Yesterday was the opening day of International quilt week Yokohama.
It was held near my house(approx. 30 minutes by walk), so I went there by myself.
There were lots of women who made a line in front of the entrance. The top picture was the biggest quilt in the hall what was placed at the entrance.
And also, there were big balloons at the entrance.
Here are some quilt I liked.
Beautiful white quilt. Delicate.
Lots of Kimono girls.
Quilt dresses. I love the center one.
Grand prize of Machine quilt. Beautiful!
I also made a little rabbit doll at a class, and met an Australian woman. I took a picture of our dolls after we finished making, but the picture is missing from my camera... Maybe I couldn't take it... ???
But it was enjoyable time for me.
In the way to my home, I saw this big christmas tree.
And I met these four cats.
When I came back home, I soon opened items what I got in the event.
This was old Yukata(Summer Kimono). I couldn't find any stains on the outside, so I think I could wear it. But I wanted to make some bags from it...
I fell love in this flower print.
And I got these twinkle zippers. They are good for Christmas gift!
I also got this fabric roll for Yukata. I'll make something for my little niece with it (* v *)!!!!
I enjoyed the event very much.
After four hours walk, I came back home with some cakes for my boyfriend who waited for me without eating anything (* v *).
Have a good Friday and weekend !!!!
