More Nantes quilts

I think this was another Yoko Saito quilt. Talk about hexies!!!
There was a booth of Linda Koenig's quilts which were beautiful!

Simple but striking 

This appliquéd quilt was amazing. 

Great way to use half square triangles 

The quilter herself and her book!  Too heavy to take home in my luggage, sadly. 

These were from a different booth:

Love the use of toile here!  I think I have that fabric too. 

More hexies!

Loved these quilts!!!

The colors are so exciting!

I loved the center hexies appliquéd onto a gorgeous floral background. 

A vendor booth 

I thought this display was darling.

Tomorrow I will show the quilts I loved the best. 
Here is a display window in Paris of a store selling the most gorgeous (and expensive!) umbrellas I've ever seen!! I'd never take them out in the rain though!

Here is another window of a perfume shop. The Parisians spare no expense in doing windows!
So simple but beautiful!!


  1. I love that first quilt too. When I first saw it I thought it was yo-yo's. Math is not my strong suit, but I do believe they are octagons! I don't usually like "modern" quilts, but those Australians kill me! I adore Marge Sampson-George and Kathy Doughty, etc. And, if these aren't your favorites, I can't wait for your next post!

  2. More fabulous quilts from Paris! So amazing. I love the first one too, especially the quilting in the border. The Margaret Sampson-George quilt is stunning too. Love the quilts in the background of the vendor booth. Do you remember who they were?

  3. I'm still a traditionalist and love Linda's on this post.

  4. I'm with Lori--I love Linda's stuff!

  5. It was a beautiful exhibition no ? The quilts of Linda Koenig were stunning, agree....
