Patchworktage Berlin 2007

The German Patchwork Guild and Berlin Brandenburg Guild got together and organised the Quilt Show this year. Alexander and I went on Saturday (Cameron was at BJ's for a sleep over, and Phil was in Russia). A few great tables were set up for the kids to do some painting blocks to add to a paper quilt, paper cut out blocks, which Alexander enjoyed doing, and learning to felt.
Next were lots of qults to look at, and of course the shopping area to buy some stuff.. I was very good and only bought a few pins for my pin board, and some beads for Sonia.

Three panels about Berlin without walls.
Lots of quilts to look at

A different medium for Berlin Bears.....polar bears featured on many blocks...the influence of Knut the Polar Bear in the Berlin Zoo.




Marga's quilt


I picked up a lot of business cards from different stalls to internet shop later on. There was also a lady there who owns a Gammil long arm, and I spoke to her at length about sending quilt tops to her to quilt for me (quilts that are too big and difficult to do on my domestic machine).

Thanks for the quilt show!! Some of those quilts were just amazing. I loved the Danish one. Such a lot of work that would have been - just arranging the colours - let alone the sewing and quilting.
