Just a brief report from the goings on at our first destination of the IBS1 Travelling Exhibition.

Marion's Quilt

Marion's Quilt

Marion from Brazil also used a 4x3 layout - the first to put this well-loved layout in landscape format instead of portrait.

Erika's Quilt

Another beautiful 3 by 4 layout, this time from Switzerland! For Erika, our first International Block Swap was the first such activity and she felt overwhelmed by the many countries the participating quilters come from. When her block package arrived in April, for Erika, it was like another Christmas - with blocks from the USA to New Zealand..

Kris' Quilt

Kris' Quilt

Kris from the Netherlands set her blocks in a 3 by 4 layout as well, added very dark sashings to make the colours really stand out, and embroidered all the quilters' names and their countries into the dark stripes...

Maria L's Quilt

Maria set her IBS blocks on point, added a block with an appliqued globe to be placed in the very centre of the quilt and framed everything, the blocks and the entire quilt with green fabrics. The result is fabulous!
