Hungarian Blues - updated with quilters names
Went to an Exhibition tonight of Hungarian Blue Quilts which was really interesting. The challenge was to use blue fabrics and preferably Hungarian motifs.
The top quilt is MOTIVES FROM TRANSYLVANIA
sewn by Somogyi Ferencne, Maria
They all looked beautiful together although some did look a little like Japanese quilts.
This one is Cover with Tulips
by Szomor Agi
The setting was the South Hungarian Social Club which was full of people including some men trying to play pool right in front of my favourite quilt. I think they were getting a bit irritated as we tried to get a good look.
The motifs were beautiful and the fussy cutting was so precise.
I also really liked this applique one
Cut work by Molnar Janosne, Marika
This one is by Zsuzsa Mészáros - see comments.
Even better - there was a cafe so we had the best snitzel I have had in ages with paprika potatoes and the best Vanilla Slice I have ever eaten. Pity I had to share it.....
Lots of friendly familiar faces too so a good evening.
I have had a wonderful number of visitors from Hungary to this post - thank you so much for visiting. If your quilt is included please let me know. I have never been to Hungary but it is on my definite list to visit especially as you make such beautiful quilts. I will actually be in Europe later this year if anyone is interested in a workshop.
