May 2019, Amersfoort, The Netherlands

After my travels to Nantes (click and click) and Gauchy (click) it was time to return home, but only for one day. Just enough time to take care of the washing and restock the fridge for the homefront, then I was back on the road (well, not really, back in the train) for my next quilt date, helping out at the Secret Sewing Sisters Smith Quiltmania exhibition also featuring the quilts of Susan Smith, Cécile Franconie and the antique quilts of collector Charles-Edouard de Broin, organised by Petra Prins in the Sint-Joris church in Amersfoort.

As this blogpost comes later than I planned , you may have seen pictures of this exhibition on other blogs and also on Instagram already, my own account (click) or other accounts. If you have not than I hope you enjoy these pictures and if you already have, maybe you enjoy seeing them again.

During those few weeks of travel to Nantes, Gauchy and Amersfoort things were so busy I hardly had any time to stitch at all, which is why – once back home – I spent my spare time stitching before writing this blogpost, I found I had really missed my stitching time.

So, here it is, an impression of a very special exhibition, beautiful quilts at a wonderful location, a great combination:-

On my first morning ‘reporting for duty’ 😉 I was way too early, the first one to arrive, but was let in by one of the church caretakers, so I had a little time to just sit down in an empty and quiet church, finishing my coffee, taking it all in….

Once everyone arrived, the doors opened and the visitors could enjoy all of this:-

The quilts

The booths

The people , only a few on the many familiar and new faces during those days

Hi Yvonne (click) behind the camera, thanks for the picture 😊

And last but certainly not least, as always, a joy and a lot of fun to spend time with and work alongside Juud (click)

Thank you for visiting this exhibition again with me on this blog until the next time!
