Well, the quilt show is finally behind us and I’m happy to say I can look back at it with a certain amount of satisfaction. It was a great success!
The wonderful and exceedingly talented ladies of the Patchwork du Léman club displayed a total of 98 beautiful quilts of all shapes and sizes, and in all the colours of the rainbow. There were 35 entries into the Challenge, all exceptionally creative. And to cap it all (from my perspective at least!), I sold one of my quilts! Only the little apple one, not one of the larger ones, but still… Suffice to say that excited doesn’t even come close! Oh yes indeedy!!!
So, without further ado, here are some of my favourites amongst the 98 quilts and 35 challenge entries…
“Ma Balade” – Marianne Bender
“Scrap Papillons” – Nicole Bietenholz
“Tribulations” – Evelyne Estier
“Kaleidoscope” – Irma Müller
“Bal des Lucioles sous la Gloriette” – Patricia Fuentes
“Elephants” – Fabienne Favroz
And, as promised, here is a photo of my giant pink and purple paper-pieced beauty, hung up in all her glory. I called this quilt Stargazing with Nancy Cap after my lovely friend, Nancy, who originally taught me to paper-piece. It measures 230cm x 230cm (91″ x 91″) and was custom long-arm quilted at Patch Ideal in Diessenhofen.
So all in all, I’m very happy with my first ever quilt show, and I hope that everyone who came to see our quilts enjoyed it as much as I did!
