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 Denise Zintzmeyer, Dominique Dallenbach, Doris Wagner, and Edith Bieri-Hanselmann.

I am not an "elite quilter" in Switzerland. So I am all the more pleased that my quilt was exhibited in Sainte-Marie-au x-Mines and is now published in a blog in the USA! Thank you to Susan Vogel for the idea and realisation of the exhibition.

Wow! What a collection! I am of Swiss heritage, so they were extra-special to me. All the quilters were wonderful!
