quilt show + Robin turns 60!!!

Yesterday Robin met Lori and I for birthday breakfast...yes, Robin is the first of the 3 musketeers to turn 60. but Lori and I are not far behind.  If you ask...where is Lori, well she closed her eyes in BOTH the photos the server took and she'd kill me if I put her on the internet as anything but beautiful or at least awake. lol

...and so here is the first installment of the Patchwork - Europa in Alsace, France.  The quilt show was spread out over 4 villages.  The quilts were hung in public building, churches and gardens and as you wound your way through the villages you also got to enjoy the local scenery which was just on the verge of the Fall colors.  Life in the villages carried on as thousands of quilter came from all over the world.  Grapes were being harvested, goats were eating grass and pastries with coffee being served in the local brasseries.  The quilts were all over the board, modern, antique, multi-media, traditional, pieced, appliqued and embroidered.  Which meant there was something for everyone.  I hope you enjoy this first installment!
