This week was a very quilty week, with our monthly quilt guild meeting on Monday and a group visit to a quilt show in Stansstaad, near Luzern . Together with 7 other guild members we took the scenic Voralpenexpress train half way across Switzerland to Stansstaad a little town located right on the shores of the”Vierwaldstädtersee” lake.
There the Pilatus Quilters, a group of 13 women were showing their quilts from the last 3 years in the Sust Museum. What a lovely building it was to show these beautiful quilts!
In addition to the quilts that were on show, there were various crafts on sale.
I love these little pumpkins which decorated one of the windows.
I have to say although there were so many beautiful quilts, I loved the simplicity and quilting on this chevron, which has always been a favorite pattern of mine.
More traditional quilts were also on show.
This little appliqued wall hanging was another of my favorites.
I loved the embroidery on this little wall hanging.
This quilt was certainly one of the stars of the show.
I loved the simple hand quilting and the flying geese framing that stunning mariners compass.
I loved the button flower garden on this quilt and the red work embroidery.
One of the challenges on display featured ‘Luzern’ themed mini quilts.
This one shows the Luzern Carnival in full swing.
I experienced a lot of hexie love for this one.
And then this lovely little art quilt showing Luzern’s famous covered bridge.
This quilt used this unique African themed fabric, which I found very beautiful.
This modern sampler wedding quilt was so large I couldn’t get it all in. I loved the color way and the fantastic quilting on it.
Many thanks to the Pilatus Quilters for all this lovely inspiration!
