Impressions from the "Patchwork-Days" in Fürth/Germany

I can hardly believe it, but I was able to leave my kids with their wonderful father this weekend (who had a few free days, woo-hoo!) and travel to Fürth, to visit the "Patchwork-Days". This is the annual quiltshow of the german patchwork- and quilt guild.

And there was much to see!
Of course, I wasn't able to take pictures of all the beautiful quilts, but a few pictures were taken.

Here we go!
