Wrapped in Gentleness

by Hiromi Yokota of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan

Artist Statement:

I wanted to create a heartwarming quilt with a calming influence. While creating the design, I was especially interested in nature and springtime’s new greens and soft gentle breezes. In this quilt, I would like the viewer to be wrapped in that gentle-breeze feeling, relaxed and at one with nature.”

Winner: Second Prize in Merit Quilting, Hand
