    This is really interesting. I noticed a definite style. Must be the European influence. I'd never really thought of that in terms of quilting but it must make a difference. All the quilts are beautiful and I'm blown away that it's all done by hand. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow Katrine, what stunning quilts! It would be difficult to pick a favourite but if you were twisting my arm, I'd have to go for the butterflies and baskets! Thanks for showing them!

    All by hand - that is amazing. Almost a lost art. Thanks for taking the time to post all the wonderful pictures.

    Wow!! Those are beautiful quilts. I don't think I have the patience to hand quilt.

    This is a bi-annual expo Karen, so hopefully they will be doing another in August. I would think with all their exquisite hand work they would find it hard to mount an annual show!!

    Gosh what can I add to what has already been said, the quilts are just awesome, what beautiful work they do! Thank you so very much for sharing them with us and for giving us a peak at the surrounding scenery. I am sure I will never have the chance to travel to your beautiful county so I appreciate it that you make me feel as if I have :D

    Wow.. they are amazingly skilled and prolific for only 7 ladies. I wish I had a quarter of their skill and drive.

    Hey, they may be in France, but that's a Judy Martin design in one of the pictures. (Same quilt as in my avatar, but done up in different colors.) Such beautiful work! Thanks for showing, and I'm glad the topic came up again since I missed it the first time (probably wasn't a board member back then).
