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.

This week we will be featuring a bonus quilt from Susan Vogel, who we will be sitting down for an interview with TQS when we visit the Houston International Quilt Show next month.

Please enjoy the next five quilts from Susan Vogel, Beatrice Zahnd, Brigitte Ricard, Brigitte Rossetti, and Cäcilia Arnold.

Having just visited Switzerland last month, I enjoyed recognizing some familiar themes. Wondering if in Ms. Rossetti's quilt there are raclette paddles and wienerschnitzel ??!!

Every one of these quilts is so unique it is so great that we are able to view them. Thanks! It is so nice to see that all quilters have so much in common.
