International Quilt Museum
For the exhibition "Journey to Japan," Keiko Goke’s meditation on the original Rob Peter to Pay Paul quilt featured in "Abstract Design in American Quilts" creates an updated, richly-colored and spontaneous version of the traditional pattern.
When Goke first began quiltmaking 50 years ago, she focused on what she calls “picture quilts” made with figurative appliqué because, she says, “I didn’t want my quilts to look similar to other quiltmakers’ work.”
Later, she embraced traditional pieced patterns, but only by approaching them extemporaneously, without templates and by cutting and placing hand-dyed fabrics directly as she works.
