I did however visited the exhibition and was blown away. Every single quilt showcased is an artwork.

Not that there is anything wrong with the traditional quilts, it simply is not my style. The newer, modern versions and techniques are more my cup of tea.
Below are photo's of some of them. But before getting to them I must congratulate the Rafels Quilt Group on the absolutely gorgeous Goody Bags we received. It was like being on a treasure hunt and clearly shows that a lot of thought went into the Bags of which I will post photo's in a future post.

I unfortunately did not wrote down the quilters names. My sincere apologies.
