Each year the largest quilt show in the world is held in Japan.  It is the TOKYO International Great Quilt Festival.  This year more than 220,000 people visited the show to enjoy the quilts competing in a number of differencategories. Like many quilt shows, each category looks for the most outstanding quilt based on artistry and technique.  However, unlike many quilt shows, they have one very charming category, they give the Friendship Award to the quilt that is filled with the joy of quilting and conveys the idea that quilting is fun.

Domo Arigato to Jennifer at http://movinghands.wordpress.com/ for sharing her photos of the competition.
