More European Patchwork

 A family of Stars by Jaques Legret. Stars dating from 1870-2013 alongside quilts from his collection. (Amish and Mennonite)
 Many of these were for sale.

I actually didn't spend much time with the vendors. We browsed through but didn't see anything "new" or especially "European" that I had to have. 

We went for lunch and browsed the list of vendors and saw that May Koval was the only ONE from USA so we made sure to go back and say hello. Rene and I both met Mary and her husband at Russian teahouse get together in NYC in 2011 for the Infinite Variety Quilt exhibit. It was nice to see her again.

Before I forget......
remember this box of fabric samples I won from Cyndi at Busy Thimble? I pakaged them up and brought them all the way to France with me, along with some other goodies from my sewing room for Cecile, Cristelle and Corrine. I hope they will have a lot of fun with them.

I'm having a heck of a time cathcing up on blog reading, so please know that I am reading, just not commenting much at this time.

Have a fantastic weekend! I'm running a half marathon and will be glad when I am not training any longer.
