Yesterday I visited the quiltexhibition of the Dutch Quilters Guild in the Gardens of Appeltern. The theme of the show is "Garden Happiness"Despite the disappointing weather, there were a lot of visitors. Many of them came especially to see the quilts.
My quilt "Rose" is hanging in the entrance building. Unfortunately the room is quite dark, so it's hard to take good pictures of the quils. I got to talk to some visitors who were admiring my quilt and I explained to them how I had made my quilt. It is so much fun to talk with colleague quilters!

Very surprising I thought were the outdoor quilts, I've never thought about making a weather resistant quilt before.
