This traveling international exhibit features highlights from the acclaimed 2015 international quilt competition. This biennial exhibition is the largest international quilting contest in Japan and one of the most prestigious in the world. It is sponsored by the JHIA, a group promoting handcrafted arts in Japan for over 40 years. Winning quilts from their traveling exhibit were first presented at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, and is broken down into two categories, "Traditional" and "Contemporary." WMQFA will be hosting a sampling of both.
