Every piece of fabric in this quilt has a special meaning to me from my recent trip to Heian-kyo (Kyoto) - the "peace capital". At some point, I began to think that this quilt was much too busy. But on the other hand, each time I go to Japan, I'm overwhelmed by its beauty and the richness of my personal experience. Thus, I decided it was ok this time to squeeze many things into my quilt. Finally, I didn't resist the urge to add a little piece of the weaving I had done in Osaka. I don't know if I really like this quilt from an aesthetic point of view, but I certainly had fun making it and, in some way, it helped me to "digest" this trip. See the detail images in my blogpost.
