Carrefour Europeen du Patchwork

Le Carrefour Europeen du Patchwork in Alsace is an annual prestigious quilt exhibition. I was there this year - for the first time. And it was really worth of it. No big exhibition halls, only churches, a theater, a villa, a small sport hall, an old bank ... In the four villages of Val d'Argent in Alsace - colorful villages, vineyards. This exhibition can not be described in one post, so there will be several - the first one is about my te contest "Trip to the end of the world."
