Yesterday I visited the Quiltfest at Birgit Klein’s Patchcom shop in Schönaich, just a few towns over from where I live in Gerlingen. It was the 6th Annual Quiltfest, and a wonderful visit it was! There were lovely quilts on display, demos and small workshops on fabric flowers, small bags and other great techniques, sewing machines for sale, and of course, FABRIC on sale as well. Birgit asked me to bring the Stars In My Hand quilt to show, so it had a nice day out of it’s sack where it normally lives right now between shows.
If you couldn’t make it to the Quiltfest, or don’t live near Stuttgart, check out the Patchcom website, where you can see pictures from the 2005 Quiltfest, download a pattern for Mrs. Patchcom by Ula Lenz, and of course, order luscious fabrics and supplies online. The Patchcom Quiltfest is definitely on my show calendar for next year.
