Exhibition Quilting Bee Sparta - Museum of the Olive and Greek Olive Oil

Our Quilting Bee organized an one-day exhibition on the 18th of May, the International Museum Day. The concept was "recycling". As our quilts are mostly made of used fabrics we were asked to show them and to give demonstrations of the various techniques we use.

This is a beautiful museum in Sparta. I only made a few pictures of the garden this time. Next Saturday I am going to visit the museum with a group of people from the Mediterranean Garden Society and am planning to make pictures inside.

The entrance to the exhibition 

We were very happy that we had quite a lot of visitors. There were numerous other events on this day !!

The two quilts on the right are made by Anneli Letho-Koutsoviti, de pink one by me. Other members of the Bee made the cushions.

These quilts are going to an orphanage in Lamia next month.

  1. Wat een mooie quilts, Ada!
    Daar hebben jullie lang aan gewerkt.
    Wat leuk om ze eerst te tentoonstellen en dat ze straks naar een goed doel gaan!

    Liefs, Gerry
