Patchwork en Quiltdagen 2013

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 antique quilts:-


A tied lone star quilt, I love the stippling effect of all those light colored strings.



Look at those edges!

… 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!

And because 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.
Have a good week,

  1. Zo te zien was er veel moois. Helaas, andere bezigheden.

  2. I really enjoyed seeing Dorry's stunning antique quilts Phyliss, you took such beautiful photos. I really like the second photo with the pale pink background and the flower quilt in cream, beige and red. It must have been wonderful to see these quilts close-up and close to your home. Ann

  3. leuk om te zien dat jij echt voor de antieken ging en ik voor de huisjes.
    Ben aan de handwerkbeurskant niet eens geweest.
    Het was echt leuk.


  4. Wat een mooie quilts laat je zien. Ik ben helemaal verliefd op die laatste die je laat zien: beige/rode mandjes. Wat leuk trouwens dat je een cursus van Ted Storm hebt gevolgd. Dat lijkt me heel leerzaam.

  5. Beautiful quilts! I loved then all. How wonderful for you to go to such a great quilt show. The basket quilt and the scrappiness of some of the others really made my day.:)

  6. What wonderful old quilts - thanks for the pictures! They are so inspiring

  7. oh die prachtige antiekjes had ik ook wel in het echt willen zien...helaas een beetje ver weg ;0) mooie foto's!

  8. Wat zijn die antieke quilts toch prachtig. Je raakt er nooit op uitgekeken.

  9. :o)) via Dorry kan ik heerlijk zwijmelen bij jou plaatjes van de antieke Quilts...
    Alleen al daarvoor volg ik je nu ;o)
