Sitges Patchwork Festival Part 3

I prepared this post yesterday, with a desire to share some of my favorite quilts in the Spanish Patchworks Association's national juried show. This year's theme was "modernismo en el mundo" (modernism in the world). There is a photo showing the title and maker after each work. 

Shortly after I learned that there are pages of photos of the entire Festival available at Flickr. You will find photos of my exhibition on pages 5 and 8, and photos of my workshops on pages 7 and 8.

Please make sure to scroll through and past the quilt photos I took, because I've shared a bit more about the town of Sitges below.

We saw a lot of dogs in Spain. We only saw a few cats, and I'm sharing this photo my husband took on the water front. You can see fishermen in the background.

I took these photos during that hour at the end of the day when the light is magical.

Our hotel was just a moment's walk from the beach

We were surrounded by many sidewalk cafes. 

and the gay village that Sitges is famous for.

The temperatures were mostly in the mid teens, which was a pleasant respite from Canadian climate. I'm off to Montreal today to teach a workshop tomorrow. Next week I will start blogging about our week in Barcelona. Have a great weekend!


  1. I followed your fabulous trip via your Facebook posts. Thanks for sharing all the great photos of the show and the laces you visited.

  2. Wow! This is amazing, Elaine! I am surprised that so much of the European work, although it seems nicely done, is so traditional! Your work must be a revelation! It certainly stands out in SOO many ways! Congratulations of a lovely exhibition! We have come to expect no less ;-) Enjoy!!!
