European Art Quilts Grand Finale

Katriina Flensburg, Sweden

Olga and Simon Prins-Lukowski spent thousands of hours of their free time over the last 20 years or so to promote art quilt and textiles. This summer the last exhibition, a Grand Finale, takes place in Goes, The Netherlands. There are 143 quilts hanging, a delight for the eyes. There are also three "one person" exhibits inside, all worth the trip by themselves. They showcase the work of Olga Prins, of Anco Brouwers-Brandehorst and Willy Doreijers, both close and helpful members of the Foundation.
Here are a few pictures of some of the quilts. More details on Instagram, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

Neuchâtel Patchwork Exhibition / Exposition

This year the theme for our group exhibition is the weather. All titles must contain a word related to the weather or weather report. Invitation and information below.
My quilt's name is "Percée dans les nuages", which means something like "peak through the clouds"... 

Cette année le thème de notre exposition de groupe est la météo. Tous les titres doivent contenir au moins un mot en relation avec le temps qu'il fait ou la météo. Invitation et informations ci-dessous.
Mon quilt s'appelle "Percée dans les nuages"...

I gathered all my beige, rust, brown scraps and made a free hand cutting crazy quilt.

J'ai rassemblé tous mes restes beiges, rouille, bruns et j'ai fait un quilt crazy à main levée.

Linking to Finish Up Friday...
