French Reproduction Quilts at Quilt Market

Stars or Baby Blocks
Marie-Paule Nedelec and Anne-Helene Nedelec

I just returned from Quilt Market in Houston where the exhibits are, as always, fantastic.
The French Guild France Patchwork showed winners in their contest Legendary Quilts.
 
Botanical Page
Louise Marie Stipon

I am showing you just a few...

The Life of Phoebe Cook
Jocelyne Picot
 
 

There were many familiar faces.

Upside Down
Marie-Josephe Veteau
 
 
These quilts will be up at Quilt Festival this week too.

As you can see by this label the contest rules required hand quilting.

Baby Blocks
Catherine Guy


Diamonds with Flowers
Dominique Husson


Ladies of the Ocean
Francoise Bertrand


Sunbean
Ewa Guerin


Mosaic Quilt
Isabelle Etienne-Bagnot

I especially liked this one because Isabelle used my Civil War reproduction collection called Civil War Homefront from a few years ago.

So happy to start seeing some of "Houston" - happenings have been quiet in blogland.

This first report could not be better - repo - and close ups and oh my. Have marked to come back and linger again.

Legendary Quilts are a famous exhibition in France every other year, the next will take place in May 2013 in Brouage (North of Bordeaux). All quilts are heavily hand quilted and are inspired from antiques.
I am longing for this next rendez-vous!
