Norwegian Quilt festival–part seven

Almost a week since I attended the Norwegian Quilt Festival.  The first one and I really hope this will take place again.  It was a vitamin Q boost that I live on for long. Here is a little summary of this wonderful weekend.

The hotel served very good food.  Imagine the sound of over 500 ladies for dinner.

All this because of three amazing ladies.  Thank you to Kathrine, Åsne and Siw for pulling all this together.  Together with your good helpers you did a magnificent job.  I really hope you are planning to repeat this festival in some years. I know for sure I’ll be there.

Saying for today:

Friday evening some of the teachers had ashow and tell with the quilts they was teaching this weekend.  Sorry about the photos, but it was a little bit dark to get good photos.  But enjoy the photos and get inspired.  Remember it is so much better to really be in the room and see them for yourself.

Saturday evening the foreign teachers gave “Who we are and how we work” and showed us even more quilts.  It was very interesting and I am so happy these teachers came over to Norway to teach at the quilt festival.
