My meeting with Yoko Saito

During these hectic days at the annual quilt meeting I have had the honor to meet Yoko Saito.

I have been a great admire of her books and pattern, and I am so happy I now got a chance to meet her. She is a wonderful lady, always smiling and even if she does not speak so much I talked to her through the interpreter. I got the chance to join her class a few hours, and learned so much about her way to work.

She had three quilts with her to show on our exhibition. Three absolutely stunning quilts. Just take a look at all the tiny details on them.




Last day of the annual meeting today, and I have a lot of photos to show you now.
