Well, you have understood how fascinated I am with the Japanese quilters. But the quilt show in Nantes had other designers invited.
First, the American designers.
As you know, I like folk art and I was thrilled to see Jan Patek and her quilts!
Have a look :
It was like being invited at Jan Patek's.
Another folk art artist was Bonnie Sullivan. And she is from Oregon!!! So it was fun to talk about her state for a little while.
And finally, the quilts of Piece O'Cake Designs.
Second, the beautiful and elegant quilts of a Dutch artist : Petra Prins
Third, the Australian quilter Lynette Anderson. Her booth was very busy and it was very difficult to take photos so here are the only ones I have!
I was really happy to have met her in person and to have had a little chat with her as I have been following her blog and creations for a long time. I like her quilts and patterns very much.
And finally, the very creative French artist Cécile Franconie who had a beautiful booth. Lucky I could take this photo as there were also a lot of people at her booth all day long!
I also went to say hello to Beatrice Meillac who taught me rug hooking last year and look what was exhibited in her classroom's wall! Don't you like this beautiful hooked rug panel ?
An finally my daughter took her first class with Marie-Claude Iperti from Les Secrets de Marie to make this :
She is busy finishing it and she seems to have fun. She gave me permission to put a photo of her and Marie Claude on the blog.
