My first encounter with quilt is a mini quilt which was given by my friend who had moved from Okinawa. This is my treasure. At that time I just thought "I can not do." When the youngest child entered kindergarten, I had a little time then I made the first product. I was told "It is easy! Just saw from mark to mark." then I became in the mood. I was taught just one how to make the star. Sawing several, then I realized. It would become large when I add them. Interesting...  It become larger and larger. It is awful that I knew nothing. "It is safe for the beginner using same kind of cloth. Quilting? Just saw around." I had easy advise, then completed Medallion quilt. I think now it was reckless. Is it a proof that if one has eagerness, then one can do everything? 

Then I got a call from a friend of Kindergarten that she wanted to make a circle in the community center but it shortage a member. And she asked to me to lend my name! This was a starting of my quilting life. I am a big fan of Mis Chuck Nohara, Mis Yoko Saito, Mis Sizuko Kuroba. This is a copy quilt, isn't it? When can I exodus ...?

When I was practicing in the class, I tried to make something favorite with my favorite color. 

【Medallion quilt】

medallion.jpg (68413 バイチE

This was published in "Quilt Japan".

It was a time that I was absorbed to correct cloths and this gave me a study of drafting and gradation. This is reminiscent product. Referring the book, searched cloth then making the pattern. Then I gave up at right lower part of gradation, became a disciple of the class of Ms. Kuroda. She praised a little but ... I had to remake 4 or 5. Then I thought border was perfect and went to the class with stars in my eyes...this time I was told it was pell-mell and suggested to divide the pattern and back to square one.  Saw and unseam, after the burden of making, the pleasure of accomplishment was the superlative! Technique is a important thing for patchwork but also the point is combination of cloths, isn't it?  [1990]   (170 X 202cm) 

【Scrap quilt】

scrapboader.jpg (54501 バイチE

Small scrappy cloth which I could not throw away. At that time, I was attracted by the photos of antique quilt of England. It is frame scrap quilt and medallion quilt also. I wondered if I could make it so I began to challenge. I started that deciding center part was rectangular of 2cm, then with drafting and made it bigger a little at one time. At first, I planned to make just center part, during sew together, I was devoted and made it to the last. This is a half size of original one. When the calculation was not match I adjusted using lattice.

   Fighting with calculator .... [2002]  (142 X 172cm)

scrap1.jpg (47760 バイチE I love an embroidery of center so much. Since I could not find the print cloth, embroidered the picture appeared on the quilt magazine. This might be my ideal one? The scrap quilt using scraps like brown color. At first I sewed together imagining the flower garden, after that, I concentrated on sewing tougher the hexagon without thinking. This can portrayed a faint color difference by dividing the pattern. I studied playing with cloth. It was fabulous when I accomplished it. A hexagon with 1.2cm on a side. [1995]   (76 X 68cm)

【Memorial quilt】

Two years later, second daughter also married and I had to make one more quilt. Grandmother became so busy. I made it when I went home to help her delivery. Daughter was responsible for drawing. She wanted to use it actually in daily base, so I made it a little larger size.

marina-.jpg (71767 バイチE When I came to my husband only three months with I-95 visa, I encountered a one book then I made it enthusiastically. I asked staff of quilting specialist shop to choose the cloth bringing that book to show. There was a lots of cloths in there and it was difficult to search. I was very supplies. I could not get bored even if I staying all the day. I returned middle of it, and when I saw it one year later I was just impressed as "I did do it very well!" and it became smaller than plan. (Plan was 9 peaces) It always happened. This is it which everybody wants to try.
