Silk shibori

Look at these stunning pieces of silk shibori! 
Can you imagine tying all those patterns into the cloth?
 

I love that the pattern in this piece is not completely regular. There is a repeated pattern, but the number of circles in each shape is slightly different.


This piece is even more interesting.
To keep a stylised pattern constant over a large area is such a challenge!

Aren't I lucky to have friends who bring me gifts from their travels? 
Thanks Deborah (who is back from a quilters' tour of Japan)!
