I just had to go back there after last year's first edition:
it's the easy peasy thing when you live in Paris, only 2 and a half hour with the TGV, and the convention center is just a few steps away from the railway station.
The sad thing was, that many people could not come because of the Iceland cloud, so i missed Mary Koval, Sarah Fielke, The Japanese quilters and many others.
This is Mary Kovals booth, empty, but Petra Prins and her helpers took good care of it.
I want to copy these quilts!
The quilting was very intricate, the condition excellent.
My favorite one, high on the list of soon to do..........
The one on the left, with the greens, is an english quilt.
Very sweet and i am tepted to make this one also.
It hung in Petra Prins' booth and she sells patterns and fabrics as a BOM.
I never saw before such a perfect machine quilting, so regular, so well balanced.
Petra Nel and Elsbeth, ready for four hectic days.
Another Morrell block
And one more!
The entire Morrell quilt, or nearly
Elisa came to Paris for a week, she's nearly 8 already and is now fond of horse riding and swimming.
We spend 4 hours a day in the swimming pool next door, and i worked on the hexies.
Astonishing how much energy kids of that age can have!
AL CARATELLO, crowded all the time, and good food and drinks.
Take care you all, keep quilting.
I'll be back soon with more stuff from Nantes.
Will V in Paris, chilly and windy today.
