still stitchin’

bojagi # 5  finished, 22″ X 24″

each bojagi has a personality of its own





this one started with  eco dyed cotton, the browns are kakishibu, the blue stripe is from an old cotton futon cover with some stamped linen samples added for fun.





seam stitching on the back.




before I get carried away and start another bojagi – it’s addictive – I am determined to finish the boro quilt that has been in the works for 2 or maybe 3 years. It is all handwoven, handstitched and indigo dyed, 56″ X 58″.


if I just finished the border and several small stitched squares  …










stamped and stitched



“and I have miles to go before I sleep”

and Christmas is coming.

    I have no words, the boro quilt is unique. Maybe after japan we should come to your place to learn more.

    These are stunning. I can’t imagine how many kilometers of thrums have been used in the boro quilt. I have enjoyed these photos very much.

    When I saw the dyed bundles from the summer post ,well I didn’t appreciate the whole artistic picture. I now see what you were aiming to do and it is fantastic. I especially like the way you framed the piece dyed with iron. It looks amazing ….
