Quilt show in Deventer (Holland)

As promised, here are some pics from our day at the Deventer Quilt Show. It took place in a beautiful old church, and that adds a lot of atmosphere to the exhibition.

Two very different Dear Janes.

These Log Cabins were tiny! The quilt was not more than one yard on the longer side.

Amazing appliqué and reverse appliqué on this blue and white beauty!
A Seven Sisters in Amish colors.

A beautiful Tripe Irish Chain with amazing machine quilting.

Very nice traditional quilts...
...and also beautiful modern ones.

The dutch quilters are not afraid of bright colors!

This was the only selvage quilt.
Tiny pieces in this batik quilt!
This shirt quilt was one of my favorites - so many beautiful fabrics!

And look at this crazy design! I wonder how on earth you can keep track of all the pieces in this confusing pattern.

A scrap quilt with the tinyest of pieces in the colors of the rainbow.

Thanks for sharing all those beauties! And so nice that they're using that "old" church for things such as a quilt show - much better than tearing it down!
