Harmony and balance in the kimono structure and how it lends itself to symmetry inspires artist Judith Content.  She constructs her quilts intuitively, using a contemporary approach to the Japanese dye technique of arashi-shibori.

Kimono Quilts and Kimonos features the works of a wide range of artists including Therese May, Yvonne Porcella, Sugar Rieck, Ans Schipper-Vermeiren, and Sarah Ann Smith. Another show, Antique Four-Poster Quilts, features antique bed quilts from the 1800s.  Their lack of corners allowed the quilt to easily fit around the bed’s posts.
