Visit to Quilt Group in Stadio/Tegea

Yesterday I went with 3 other members of our Spartan Quilting Bee to visit a Patchwork and Quilting Group in Tegea, a village close to Tripolis.


The Public Benefit Foundation Michail N. Stassinopoulos - Viohalco built a very nice Cultural Center in this village, with a theater, library, workshop rooms.



This group started in 2003 with Mrs. Myrto Blassopoulou as (a very experienced) teacher. They showed us the lovely quilts they made and are still working on.


We followed the lesson, where Myrto taught us how to make a patchwork Christmas snowflake to use in a quilt, table runner or Christmas ornament.


I didn't make a picture of the snowflake, but, talking about Christmas, above the table runner, small tablecloth, that Thea (a Dutch member!) made. 
I have a lot of pictures that I cannot submit in one post, but I will write a second time about this visit. 


Now, this one would look gorgeous (when ready) draped over the sofa with Christmas. I can imagine myself cuddled up in this quilt on the sofa under the Christmas tree, sipping a hot chocolate! 


To stay in the red tones, another beautiful log cabin one. 

That's it for now. Tonight or tomorrow morning I will write the second post. I am a bit pushed for time because tomorrow I am going to Athens.

That was great getting together with the ladies at Tegea.
Did they have any tips about where to find cotton material?
I can see that there will be many exciting quilts produced in Sparta
