    Thanks, Elle, these are great. I agree with the other posters, apart from the log cabins, they strike me as so different to what I usually see.

    That lady doing the micro mini mitred patchwork deserves a medal for her work - I thought I had some patience, but not as much as she has.

    Trying to think of what to say that will do justice to each and everyone of these works of art. Magnificant is all that comes to mind and that seems so little to say. The different techniques, styles and colors leave me speechless. I stand in awe!
    Thanks for sharing all these pictures Elle. You have become the download diva!

    I had never seen that type of work done before and it was just so intricate. Many of the Spanish women do very intricate lace work so I guess they have loads of patience

    Thanks Penny, I have some pictures of Barcelona City to post which will really interest you all but it will have to be in the morning now, too tired after my trip.

    I love all the pieces, but I really love the log cabin quilt. I have seen lots, but never that arrangement. Thanks for sharing.

    What a pleasure to see such original and varied works (and not a D9P in the bunch! :wink: ). They are all magnificent.

    The log cabin was wonderful - a great setting on a traditional quilt, as was the PP (?) spiky spiral mandela type quilt. That one really piqued my interest. The reverse applique quilts were also gorgeous. And those tiny teeny folded pieces of fabric - amazing.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    I am so glad everyone is enjoying the quilts. There was no reverse applique. If you mean the ones at the beginning, they are Hawaii style and then are all needleturn. However they are not yet quilted.

    WOW!!
    I was in Barcelona and Sitges 38 years ago but never knew such as this at that time, what a treat!! The diversity is so intriguing; but my Americanism shows in my preference for the log cabin quilts.

    The brown with the aqua shapes - it's very interesting in a primitive sort of way.

    The needleturn applique quilts were wonderful.

    Thanks just gone to have a look again, This was the quilt they used on their advertising billboards and at a guess it was all black bias, very different.

    Thank you for sharing this. I had no idea I'd be going to a quilt show in Spain on U.S. National Quilting Day.
