NHK Partnership Quilt 2015

One of my friends in Japan, Carin, has shared the details of the NHK Partnership Quilt for next year.  One block is made, according to the theme and instructions, and sent to NHK in Japan where it is joined with many others into bed-sized quilts and quilted.  The finished quilts are displayed at the Tokyo Great International Quilt Show and then raffled off.  Carin has written several posts about this project and shared images of blocks she has made, all featuring the Swedish flag in honour of her homeland.


Maybe as I am dyeing with rose petals, the theme triggered thoughts of "pink" for me….

For 2015 the theme is SWEET.

In Japanese 'sweet' could mean: cake, dessert, ice cream, candy... or something charming, pretty and cute ('kawaii'), like a teddy bear, kitten, pink ribbon... anything that a 'girl' would like. 

Should you wish to join Carin, me and many others, in taking part, then these are the rules:

  • one block per person
  • 22cm x 22cm with a seam allowance of 1.5cm included
  • flimsy block, i.e. no wadding, no quilting
  • your name should be written with pen in the seam allowance of the lower right hand corner
  • your block should have reached NHK by 31st August, 2014
  • enclose a note with your name, address, tel no, email address
  • send to:

  1. What a great idea to make a quilt for raffle. Are you making a block?

  2. Sounds like a great idea. Maybe I'll get busy.

  3. Thank you for spreading the word. My block is completed, sticky with sugar... and to be posted soon on my blog.

  4. Does that mean you are going to enter a block too? I am still trying to decide on which sweet is sweetest.

  5. What a lovely idea - I would certainly look at making a block if I can finish two projects presently being worked on!


I really appreciate your lovely comments, ideas and opinions, they make my day. Thank you for visiting Piece'n'Peace,
