I walked a lot, talked a lot, met a lot of people from all over the world, sat on terraces drinking white wine and of course ... I bought a lot.
I met Helen (from Helen's blog) and her friend in Di Fords workshop, I had lunch with Will (from not so zen quilts in Paris) together with Vera and Marlies from Holland. I talked to Linda Collins (Quilts in the Barn) and to a lot of other woman!!
Every morning when I walked from my hotel to the Salon, I visited the famous Garden in Nantes (Jardin des Plantes). And every morning I saw this.....
After about twenty minutes I arrived at the Salon and there was this.... (and a lot more, like birds hanging in trees , flowers between the bushes...), made by the knitters from Nantes.
The first thing you saw when entering the salon was a Dear Jane and a patched cake for the 150 anniversary of Dear Jane.
And isn't he cute?
I suppose you want to see pictures of quilts , for today I only show you one of the Dutch Dear Janes who was hanging there between the other 110 ones.
This is Marian's quilt made with the original fabric.
More pictures to come, I promise!
