My friend Tracey Brookshier just returned from the big quilt show in Tokyo (Japan's version of the Houston show) the week before Point Bonita. I had asked her to find me a book on Japanese ribbon embroidery while she was there, and she came home with a doozie.
It's all in Japanese...all I know is that it is published by Mokuba, whose ribbons are used throughout the book.
I was so blown away by this work that I wanted to share just the front and back covers of the book with you all...I don't think that busts any copright laws. When you click on a picture a 900 X 1061 pixel image will come up. I wanted to leave it large so you could see the details.
Do click on the link to the Tokyo show to see some amazing quilts...
