The main purpose of our trip to Europe last autumn was for me to visit the Patchwork 'Concours' in Alsace. There were displays and demonstrations in various venues (mainly churches) throughout four villages in the Silver Valley near Colmar.

This display is part of the Wide Horizons show in one of the villages. The piece nearest the camera is by Alicia Merret. The work in this show was so good, I didn't know whether to be inspired or give up altogether!
Most of the Wide Horizons quilts could be classed as fairly contemporary, or were art quilts. I prefer these to the more traditional quilt, but I can still appreciate the skill in design and technique.
