Lilo recently visited the European Patchwork Meeting in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, France and discovered a wonderful exhibit they were featuring there. Swiss quilt group patCHquilt was celebrating their thirtieth anniversary by putting on a showcase of 100 challenge quilts for the occasion. The challenge was open to all members of the group of every skill level and each quilt had to adhere to the following criteria:

  • Works must be original, not from a kit and must include a red border.
  • They must be 30 cm wide, 120 cm long, and displayed portrait style.
  • The quilt must include at least 1/2 of the Edelweiss fabric (that each person received), and feature a piece of that same fabric that is 10 cm x 10 cm in size.

To join in the celebration with patCHquilt, we will be featuring four of the challenge quilts each week that were displayed as part of the exhibition at the European Patchwork Meeting.

Please enjoy the first four quilts from Adelheid Risi, Agnes Guenat, Andrea Groenenwegen, and Annalise Pianto-Beck.

Really liked Alp Procession Appenzell and the yodelers are great, too.

Je n'ai pas beaucoup aimé cette exposition de mon pays. La Suisse était "invitée d'honneur" pour moi cela signifie que nous montrons le nec, or dans cette présentation il y avait à boire et à manger, c'est à dire un tout petit peu de très beaux patchs et la majorité de très moyenne facture.
Nous avons en Suisse des artistes de très haut niveau, c'est dommage de ne pas leur avoir laisser la place qu'elles méritaient.
