18th European Patchwork, Alsace France

In the last several years of attending quilt shows the European Patchwork has been the most original presentation. The show was scatter throughout 4 villages and in each village a different venues. The church below was one of those venues.

We walked from one village to another or we could take a shuttle. But, walking really provided a different view of village life. Lori, Robin and I could tell that it wouldn't be long before the trees would become a brilliant red, orange and brown...Fall is on it's way.

One of the show venues was in the garden of a Manor House!

Between a couple of venues the walk would have been longer and there was no sidewalk. So we took the shuttle...look who was coming along for the ride.

The different venues allowed us a peek into village life.

We checked out the vendor mall...just one more time..and I found another well dressed guy!

Tomorrow we head to Frieburg and the Black Forrest!
