quilting exhibition in Lier

Yesterday my friends and I went to visit a quilting exposition in Lier, a little town not far from here. It was a large exposition, and it was situated in an abandoned warehouse - very pittoresque. It was a bit remote so it was a good thing they had placed many signposts or we wouldn't have found it :-)
Besides the traditional patching-and-quilting the local quilters had used many modern techniques too. A lot of works were embellished with appliqués, and many were made up of scraps of fabric thar were glued and then stitched. One lady had replicated two photographs, and others had created animal faces and birds in this technique. It was very special.
