Exhibition in St Marie aux Mines

first time of visiting here. Really interesting displays over four villages. My visit in pouring rain but still lovely with some extra beautiful quilts, especially in the 'other' villages.  The exhibition is spread over 4 villages in various venues, mostly churches, which always give a good showcase for quilts. Of particular note was the log cabin exhibition, both old and new; the Amish quilt collection; and a very modern art show that included large art quilts by a German lady – colourful beauties with insects on them.
            If you find the time to visit this exhibition next year, it is well worth it.

Biggles as you don't know him

iIfyou are into dogs, and a cute one at that, you ought to visit where my cousin's bichon frise lives and chats about his life with his two staff in Bath. He is adorable although I am a cat lover really!

Kaffe Fasset exhibition in quilters guild HQ in york

Managed to catch the very last day of this exhibition, and one of the last chances presumably before the museum closes. Very sad and we all hope that a new venue will be found soon.
The exhibition was very colourful and there were at least 16 pairs of quilts, one from the QG heritage collection and one from Kaffe interpreting the design in modern fabrics and design. It was quite exhilarating to see all the colour in one venue. I really enjoyed the modern ones where he had interpreted the old design quite closely. Photos to follow
