Eye Candy from Germany

(Editor's note: this post has come from Sheila, who has recently returned from holiday. Thank you so much Sheila for thinking of us and taking the time to write this post.)

Hello everyone.

Been on my hols to friends in Augsburg and found out via the German Quilters Association that there was a quilt exhibition a short distance away, in Kösching , a small  town (about the size of Boston Spa). So off we went.

It was held in buildings which had previously been a convent and are now for civic use. Beautiful rooms , very light ,  with oak floors . 

The Diamond Quilters seem to have a nucleus of about 18 quilters ,who have a broad range of talent and interest. They also make “exceedingly good cakes “.

I was impressed by the level of skill and also by the  gorgeous fabrics ,  mostly supplied by Angelica , who has a quilt shop in the village. 

Age range about the same as our group. As with all quilters , a very friendly lot .

Hilmar , our friend’s husband was really impressed and even my  other half (who never goes near a quilt show )  said he’d enjoyed it !

To the ladies of the Diamond Quilters ,  Kösching ,who are going to look in to our blog       "Vielen Dank fuer eine schoene Austellung . Wir hoffen dass Sie ein  erfolgreiches Wochenende hatten. “
