Sorry for the delay of posting – it’s been a little busy here last days …
In Veldhoven there was one special spot to look at : my quilt, normally in my living room, now in a big exhibition room … near our booth of the Belgian Quilters Association
Nice isn’t it ?? But Belgians quilt were hung in a corner of the shop area, and lots of people visit the shops and forget to look behind them … not really the best place of the exhibition. But those visitors who saw them where enchanted about the idea and the quilt made of that page 23 of a magazine (the page was showed beside the quilt)
Here comes my other favorite of the exhibition …
Dinner at 8 artists from the USA
Terry Grant & Jeannie Moore
Judy Coats Perez (love these cups!)
Terry Waldron & Gerrie Congdon
Susan Brubaker Knapp & Kathy York
From Italy : Invisible Cities : a beautiful collection but not well placed (on entrance and you couldn’t take enough distance) – nevertheless, look at the one in mauve : what a quilting!
There was also a place reserved for Ina Georgeta Statescu, she's always showing very fine and delicate art-work!
From Israel: a lot of quilts, maybe too much in the middle, on the best place of the exhibition room, and not the most beautiful ones. I found a lot of the other exhibitors much better technically and more creative – and I’m not the only one who says so L . Only Yemima Lavan and Eti David could get my attention.
There were many others, beautiful quilts, but unfortunately lots of ‘no photo’ … still wondering why they exhibit … do they really think the visitors are going to become millionaire by selling their pictures of those quilts??
From the shops, I brought something in my bag to home : a metal clasp, old-vintage-antique-looking but with a very special way of fixing the fabric : it’s not to be sewn in, not to be pressed between the clasp, but inserted and fixed with tiny little screws. I’ll make it this summer and you’ll certainly hear of this experiment! And I bought also some fabrics in linen, can’t resist the stand of Margret Behrends Kohl (clic) (she’s the lady with white blouse on the right of the shops-picture J)
