Earlier this year, Sandra Boch (Managing Director of modeS4U) and Alan Mak (IT Manager) visited the Quilt Market in Tokyo and there were just so many stunning Japanese fabrics stitched into some truly incredible projects, such as quilts, toys, displays and much more. From designs featuring gorgeous floral fabrics, to those using vibrant patterned fabric, there were many inspirational projects as far as the eye could see. Which of these projects do you like the most?
