Lorna, Thanks so much for sharing your photos and narrating this wonderful show for us! The setting for this show appears to have so much more character and ambiance than the quilt shows we are more familiar with here in the US in a large convention center or armory....thanks again for taking us along with you on your trip!

I loved this exhibit from Italy! It's called "Treviso, painted Town". The synopsis: Treviso is also called the "painted town" for the numerous and beautiful frescos which embellish the frontages of its palaces, churches and monasteries. Patchwork Idea's goal was to highlight those wonderful and unique wall paintings by representing in their quilts their typical colors and patterns, telling thus a little bit of this town's history. Some of the works exhibited will bring out the typical Treviso's natural and architectural characteristics as well as some aspects of the province.

"Gateway to the Orient"
Grobenzeller Quiltgruppe focused on the Orient. Hues and patterns especially from richly illuminated architecture and brilliantly colored textiles, have inspired their latest quilts. Many of the geometric patterns are well know from traditional quilters. Oriental archways and doors served as inspiration and respect of the theme. Vintage and antique linens were dyes and then worked into quilts during a group project week.

Another exhibit at this venue is called "Viewpoints 9: Challenges of 9". Viewpoints 9 is an international invitational fiber art group founded in 2012. In this series of nine bi-monthly themes, they consider topics related to the number 9, including: where time goes, what risks you would take, the impact of the word "no" and 6 other topics.

Venue 19 in Lievpre, had several artists in this one building. This first one was entitled “The Color of Life” by Barbara Lange from Germany.

"Communication Then and Now" This is an amazing fan that touches on pretty much all forms of communication that you can think of. SHe uses quilting, embroidery, applique and ...you name it. THe little squares on the edge of the fan are all of the social media, you see the emoticons. also in here is braille, morse code, bar codes, messenger pigeon and it goes on and on.

"Monochrome 14 - Hawk Moth"

These two are by Olga Prins-Lukowski from Netherlands. Her exhibit was entitled "Retrospective of a Creative Journey".

This is by Beatrice Lanter, from France, I think. It's entitled "Tout est partie de l'univers". I like it because it is sort of inside out.

These quilts (in a not so clear picture) are part of an exhibit of France Patchwork where they made reproductions of antique quilts.
