In my last post on the International Fairy/Folk Tale challenge I posted a photo collage of the thirty quilts completed by US quilters. I thought it would be interesting to feature them individually. The entire 90 quilt exhibit opens in Japan next week. Fittingly enough, this first one by Laura Jaszkowski interprets the Japanese folk tale Snow Woman. The title of Laura’s piece is “The Sadness of Yuki-onna.”
Her artist statement: Yuki-onna sometimes comes to the edge of the forest and looks down on the village where she lived when she was human. She always hopes to catch sight of her husband and son.
