I got to be a part of a very fun event this past June that took place in New Ulm, Minnesota. This was the first year of this Quiltistry event which hopefully will be held on a regular basis. It was put on by a group of women owned specialty shops and businesses in downtown New Ulm.
The day started out with a morning tea session at the The Grand Kabaret, where I was the featured speaker. This is a very special place with a lot of history and I just loved the interior.
I only had my phone to take pictures and of course didn´t pull it out until after everyone had left.
The Grand Kabaret has live music and comedians on their stage on a regular basis. This morning.....a quilt designer from Iceland!!
It was pretty cool! Thank you to all the ladies that came out early on a Saturday morning to listen to my gab!
They had a specific Quilt Trolley going around town that day to take quilters to the different events.
New Ulm has some wonderful buildings dating back to their German settlers and one of the highlights that day was the outdoor quilt show on German Street. I took the stroll on my lunch break and took some photos:
One of the quilts on display was made from my Destiny line of fabric from a few years ago.
Peeking through the window on that same house, I spotted another quilt in the porch from my Amma´s Garden fabric line, which matched the flowers in the window boxes. What a fun surprise.
Across the street there were quilts strung between the trees! Gorgeous!
In the afternoon there were workshops offered taught by me, Chris Hoover from Whirligig Designs and the local shops.
