I visited yesterday 5th Main Quiltfestival in Aschaffenburg. Just wanted to look around and see all the quilts shown. I didn't spend much time there and didn't buy any fabric from the shops there - sad to say, it's cheaper to order fabrics from US than buy them in Germany. And with prices almost twice as high here... well, I have to be in a really big need to buy any fabric in Germany. Another bad thing which I noticed were the prices of books. I planned to buy some. But when I saw the price of 36€ for a book which interested me, I decided to wait and check the price in an online shop (I buy book via amazon; prices are really good, sending fast and free). As you may imagine, the same book, new with free shipping was cheaper. And how! It costed only 23€ in amazon! I can understand few € difference, but not such huge one. Well... :/
The main purpose of my visit were quilts. Lots of quilts. Many traditional ones, few... hmmm... let's say extravagant and some, on which I could stop my eyes and looks with a pleasure :)
Here are my few personal favourites (I don't have many photos):
I like mini quilts more. Those exhibited on the festival were really wort seeing. This is my fav. Wonderful piece of art. Such tiny details, wonderful taste for colours. A masterpiece!
