Tokyo Great International Quilt Festival 2010

Jennifer at Moving Hands has been posting a wonderful selection of photographs of quilts on display at the Tokyo Great International Quilt Festival 2010 both on her blog and in her flickr album (73 photographs and counting).  Today she features a quilt made by Miyoko Murata with enough detailing to keep you looking and surprised at what you find forever. 
I have found it very interesting to note while looking at the quilts that while not many of them are overtly Japanese, they are obviously not Western.  I can't pinpoint what it is.  There is a fantastic range of colours although it would be fair to say that indigos and taupes dominate, there is a complete range of styles and methods although I noticed particularly how much hand-piecing there was, but maybe because I like it myself.  If you go over to Jennifer's site and have a look please let me know your thoughts.
