… a bit more of an AMAZING deisgner




As promised. . . here are more of the amazing designer, Yoko Saito's quilts that were in a special display in the Lecien booths. Midway through the second day of Market, they changed the quilts on display. . . so the "ooh-ing & ahh-ing" continued!

Aren't the hearts & the warmth of this quilt just perfect?! If I had this quilt - I would keep it on display - all year through. This is one that I would never tire of. I really, really ♡ this quilt.


I was so impressed & even encouraged by the quilt below. Made of tiny triangles - hand pieced. . . it was simple stunning, & an incredible lesson on how - no matter how small the pieces in a design - when you see the finished work - & don't fret so much about the beginning size of something. . . the results are worth it all!



I wish I would have taken a better close up photo of this next quilt. . . as the quilting was amazing. . .


. . . but also because each of the kernels on the wheat shafts were separate appliqué pieces.


Some more quilts. . . to simply admire & be in awe of. . .








I saved this quilt for last - as it reminds me of the wedding dress that comes at the end of a design show. . .


. . . the details take your breath away. . . like the sheer organdy 'pocket' that holds the stems of the bouquet, the trapunto quilting, the mixture of piecing, appliqué, & embroidery. . .



Once again . . . everyone. . . all together. . . "S i g h !"


I hope you've enjoyed seeing some of Yoko Saito's incredible works of art. If ever you hear of a showing of her designs - GO! I can guarantee that you will be amazed.

Several have asked - so I want to be sure that I mention it again . . . Yoko Saito's fabric line (many which are in these designs) is printed by Lecien & is called 'Centenary Collection'. You can bet that I'm going to start collecting these beautifully subtle fabrics!
