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 next four quilts from Mirka Vanek Edelweiss, Monique Bongard-Stalder, Monique Huber, and Nelli Textor.

Really enjoyed seeing these little quilts. So many great ideas for one theme. I hope these ladies enjoy quilting for many years to come.

These are beautiful and out of the ordinary. I love that each quilter conveys her love for the beautiful country of Switzerland in a small quilt. What joy for me to study each quilt and try to "see" the mountains, lakes, and profuse Flora. Someday I will visit this country again.
