Deventer Quilt Show

Three weeks ago we went to Deventer (Netherlands) to visit the annual quilt show of the dutch Quilter´s Guild. This year it was held in the beautiful old church of Deventer again.
Deventer is a very beautiful old town with a lot of stunning buildings.
Look at this picture - it is not wonky, the building is leaning! I don´t know when it was built, but it had an inscription "renovated 1775" !
 I always like the special atmosphere in the church.

 There also was a row of booths, but I was quite good and only bought three fat quarters - two of them very old and hard to find Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
Look at this beautiful old tomb slab. The whole floor is paved with these plates. This one is from 1591.

 Now for the quilts. Look at all these tiny hand sewn triangles!
 A lot of tiny pieces in this one, too.
 I liked all the plaid fabrics in this quilt.
 There were some very beautiful quilts from Kaffe Fassett Fabrics.

This one is called "Fassetts" (facets). Interesting design and a huge collection of KF fabrics.

 Ferris Wheel in traditional dutch fabrics.

 Colorful Ocean Waves
 Dear Jane in a very unusual but beautiful combination of civil war and 30s fabrics.
 A nice quilt with australian motifs and road signs.

so pretty and having a quilt show in a church that is so old is so unique. I would be looking at the quilts and the old church! Thanks for sharing.
