The Norwegian Quilt Associations annual quilt meeting 2012–part 2–The shops

A lot of quiltshops was attending the annual quilt meeting. There was so much to look at, so much inspiration and far too much I wanted to buy. Enjoy the photos and get inspired.

The visitors at the quiltmeeting got to vote for their favorite quilt shop and Quiltegården from Trondheim won this year.

I was lucky to come on some quiet moments to take photos of the shops. But I can tell you there was so crowded some times so that you could hardly move around. As you see from the photos there was a lot of inspiration in these shops. I will give a big hug to all the quiltshops who loaded up their cars and drove hours to bring all these goodies to the annual meeting.

Another blogposte from the annual quiltmeeting will come in a day or two.

Tusen takk for at du deler så mange fine bilder - skulle så gjerne vore der og opplevd stemninga, butikkane og utstillingane ;O)

Tak for fine billeder. Det er altid spændende at se. Jeg er dog forbløffet over ligheden immellem de forskellige butikkers stande; meget de samme farver, stoffer og i det hele taget meget den samme "shabby chic"-agtige stil. Ikke at der er noget i vejen med det. Det ser henrivende yndigt ud og virker "eksotisk" på en dansker, da vi faktisk ikke rigtig har nogle butikker, der kører den stil. Det bliver sikkert anderledes for nordmændende at komme til Ålborg i maj - og spændende for de danske quiltere at se andre landes butikker repræsenteret.

Excellent. Yes, it really does make you want to buy and buy. And such beautiful samples they had in their displays - I would want each one.

Så fine bilder du har tatt av butikkene. Jeg oppdager ting jeg ikke så de gangene jeg gikk der selv.
Gleder meg til neste årsmøte

Vilket underbart veckoslut ni har tillbringat i Bergen, önskar att jag hade varit där. Inkommande veckoslut har vi rikstäckande quilthelg här i Finland med drygt 300 anmälda och i min hemstad Vasa dessutom. Det skall bli mycke skoj och jag hoppas att jag hittar lika fina tygfynd här som du hittade i Bergen.
Önskar dej en fin fortsättning på våren.
Klem från Finland
