January 2011 Meeting with Helen Fujiki

Helen Fujiki was the guest speaker for the first meeting of the New Year. She gave a very interesting talk about her trips to Japan and the quilts that have been inspired by those trips. Here is Helen giving her introduction.

Helen's manhole quilts were awesome:

Some of the detail on one of the quilts:

The quilting was incredible and we were even allowed to touch the quilts :-). This quilt had 3D lanterns:

Helen also taught a Fuji Wa workshop the next day. We look forward to seeing the results of this workshop at our show and share. For more pictures check the Picasa Album.

Here are the postcards submitted at the January meeting:
