The Tokyo International Quilt Festival 2015 was held at the Tokyo Dome. It was the first time for me to go to the show and the first time for me to go to Tokyo Dome. Some of them were amazing! Lots of applique, embroidery, and techniques other than just quilting.

As you can see, many people were taking photos. The arena was packed with a 99% female crowd. You could barely move. Now you see the reasons why this show is so popular.
