Here are some pictures of the exhibition My DM and I went to as I was in France. It took place in St Quai-Pontrieux a nice summer resort on the north coast of Brittany. The exhibition was very nice. As the place between and in front of the quilts was not very big, some of the pictures are cut. Sorry!

I liked the form of that quilt and the scrappy look.
In this one I found the colour combination interesting.

Another scrappy quilt. I remember that the leaves had been sewed in and not made in appliqué!

I liked the unusual block of that one and the fact that all the white blocks had been filled with stitchery with a maritime topic.

I recognized some Dear Jane blocks in that one and I found the colour combination very successful.

And yet another scrappy quilt. The stripes of the log-cabins were so small (about 1 cm wide) that one couldn´t see the overall pattern from near!
One could only see a lot of very colourful stripes.

And finally my favorite! Scrappy, with repro fabrics.
My DM and I bought tickets and took part in the prize-drawing but we didn´t win anything, maybe next time in 2 years for their next exhibition!

Those leaves are amazing!

I found your blog and love your quilting. Just wanted to let you know of a mini-quilt swap I am hosting. We'd love to have you if you are interested. The details are given at the blog link below. If it happens that you are not interested, I'd still appreciate if you could spread the word in the event some of your blog's readers might like to participate. Thanks!

I've just found your site due to my new interest for the Civil War quilt and book I found on Piecingthepast. I like very much reproductions, and also I enjoy making blocks. I have started the SBS quilt from Elm Creek. It would be interesting to get in touch with you...(it was Anne Ida who introduced me).
