Something Boro’d Something Blue – an exhibit of Quilts influenced by the Japanese Boro traditions and techniques of layered and stitched patchwork.
Japanese Boro once a functional form of layering and stitching traditional indigo and other fabrics together to patch clothing, futons and other house hold textiles to extend their usefulness also became a beautiful statement of how simple hand stitching transcended their humble purpose.
Quilters show us what inspires you based on the Japanese Boro style of patchwork. Entries can be made by hand or with machine stitching or a combination of both. Traditional or contemporary designs may include elements of stitching and indigo-dyed fabrics alone or in combination with any other fabrics as long as your quilt embodies the essence of Japanese Boro traditions.
