Inari is the goddess of rice, agriculture, business and probably other things too. Fushimi Inari is one of the main shrines where she's worshipped. It is located South of Kyoto. The torii, the famous red gates of Shinto shrines, were one on the symbols I wanted to use in my quilt. I printed them with a homemade stencil. The foxes are Inari's messengers. I used a thermal screen and a homemade stencil to print them on my fabrics. The multicoloured vertical lines were inspired by the origami cranes that are found in shrines and temples everywhere in Japan. See the detail images in my blogpost.
