Which is also why I have not been able to attend Lily's Fresh Sewing Day or Small Blog Meet. But there's always the first of the next month!
And this week I REALLY won something: a lovely and cute mini quilt. I'll post a picture when it has arrived.
If you'd like to win something very original, hop over to Noas'. (you won't regret it)
Yesterday I went to a quilt exhibition (in Vijfhuizen, near Amsterdam) with lots of market stalls as well (and I only bought 2 items!)
And I've seen some stunning work! So many different techniques! Simple and intricate, made by male and female quilters, all different and (nearly) all beautiful. Like these, for example
(brace yourselves for 13 pictures):
|not a perfect picture, but you still can see the details of the quilt|
|yes, bits of newspaper!|
|pieces of fabric, rolled up, some with a bit of batting and sewn to the foundation (=fabric)|
|from afar it did not look very appealing to me|
|but I was stunned by the details!|
|And I still don't know how she made this|
|Just by adding a few strands of yarn (is it?) this quilt is starting to move, flow, like a river.|
What is this?
Have fun today.
