    Hi everyone, thought you might like to see pics of the quilt exhibition i visited in holland last week. Sorry some are a bit dark or fuzzy - I wasn't allowed to use flash. Some are from the mid 19th century and some modern, also some patchwork skirts made just after the second world war - this was reallt moving, they were made as a symbol of regrowth - taking the scraps of a wicked past and rebuilding them into a new future, I haven't explained that very well but i hope you get my drift!

    Here's a link to the museum's site http://www.friesmuseum.nl/index.php?id=2086 it's in Dutch but if you go right down bottom left and click on the word English!

    PS Also went to a fabric fair where i got some lovely bargains - especially lots of blue and whites which are typically Dutch! There's a pic in their somewhere! And yes I went a bit mad but fabric in France is REALLY expensive so I don't often get bargains like this!

    A sampler more modern - beautiful dresden plates!

    They are beautiful, those tiny hex's are exquisite. The first one Dresden plate is wonderful - of course you didn't touch any, did you!

    A modern quilt - the letters refer to the block name or picture but some are in dutch so DH had to translate for me!

    This is made of old 'baafs' which is part of Dutch national dress and is like a bib for grown ups! The centre panel lifted up like a bib!

    a local textile art college project to make quilted collars - this was my favourite, you could use the idea around a quilt edge in place of prairie points.

    and finally - the 'fabric wall' leading into the exhibition (tried to pry some out but it was stuck on tight, dang it!!! :wink: )

    And lastly, my lovely bargains from a fabric fair!

    Yes I know it's a lot but I don't often find it this cheap!
