Title: Hometown Nostalgia

Year Completed: 1984

Size: H71” × W54.5” / H181 cm × W138 cm

Material: old cotton (aizome, kasuri), new cotton (Japan, America)

Statement: Using much of the aizome fabric which I had accumulated up to that time, I added one zig-zag shape to the diagonals of the design; this was as complex as I could manage at that time. Inserting the small squares which comprise the narrow diagonals was very difficult technically, but this greatly increases design possibilities of the other side. At that time I was still unaccustomed to the sewing machine and inserting thick batting, so these small squares are not uniform in size.
