Nice to have
a quiltshow near where I live for a change! The Patchwork en Quiltdagen, just a
5 minutes drive. And I was so looking forward to it because of this, Dorry’s
A tied lone
star quilt, I love the stippling effect of all those light colored strings.
… and these
are for the quilt police J !
A quilt show
is always a great place to meet up with (quilt)friends. It was lovely to see
Marcha again. In November 2011 we sat opposite of each other for 3 days during
the Applique Masterclass by Ted Storm. Apart from working very hard to master
what Ted was teaching we had a lot of fun and although we had not seen each
other since then we did keep in touch. At the time Marcha already had a webshop
but since she has opened up a ‘real’ quiltshop too: the Quiltster, with a great
selection of fabrics and patterns, including her own.
For those of
you who are not familiar with Ted Storm’s work, her quilt won the Founders' Award at the Houston Quilt Festival 2012 and that was not the first of
her quilts to win a prize there!

I did not have a blog at the time, this is the picture taken (at the Quilthoeve
quiltshop) after the 3-day Applique Masterclass of the students and a proud
teacher J , with Marcha and I standing on the left.
But that was
then and this is now and I had a great time at the quiltshow last Friday, hope
you did too and if you weren’t there hope you enjoyed the pictures, the antique
quilts were a highlight for me since we do not often get a chance to see
antique quilts over here.
