17. Carrefour Europeen du Patchwork

Large and very famous quilt exhibition in Sainte Marie-aux-Mines, Alsace, France
We visited  last Friday - it is one hour from our house in the mountains
I will show just a few impressions

more on Facebook


I like especially the machine quilting on this
Sue Benner is the author

It is kind of zentangle - sewn with black thread
a few colour patches -
by Barbara Lange, Germany

A charming little quilt made of old laces

a French tea room
Theme: Country quilt

Interesting composition again Sue Benner


Ste. Marie-aux Croix -
One of those four villages where the exhibition took place

Look at those beautiful feathers made of paper
of late I am a feather fan

An insect's house in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines
With the house behind it is not so clear but
one can anyway see the many small boxes with different holes in it
Small wood pieces, broken roof-tiles and
a roof on top of it all

  2. What an interesting lot of quilts. I love the 'mock zentangle' quilt, just beautiful. The scenery is beautiful, and how amazing is that 'insect house'. Thanks from me too, for sharing such a wonderful day.
