on Display: A raffle quilt was on display and the raffle tickets were being sold at the Chaska Area Quilt Club booth, the Arboretum, Chaska, MN. The raffle quilt (bed quilt) looks amazing. The raffle quilt was a fund-raiser for
their club (maybe I'm wrong).  Raffle tickets $2. We bought one raffle ticket there, but we didn't win. Quilter (Quilt Artist) Vicky at the booth generously gave us info on quilts: Quilts are bed covers and also used as wall hangings. There are bed quilts, baby quilts, and mini-quilts. She showed us her awesome baby quilt, which she is making, as well.

I, a Japanese, told Vicky, "I don't think that quilts are popular in Japan." She didn't agree with me and told me, "Quilts are getting very popular among Japanese people." She added, "I go to Japan almost every other week, and know about Japan quite well." Oops! I realized that my knowledge of Japan has become completely obsolete, especially about quilts. She's a member of Chaska Area Quilt Club.

Ummm... If 'Sashiko', which I know, is a quilting technique, quilts have been popular in Japan since a long time ago.
