What a beautiful trip and quilts. Of course, the one with the various size of triangles caught my eye right away. ;-) Thank you for the mention of my quilt...I've been working on something else; but, do intend to get the borders on that this weekend.

The side trip looks very enchanting....a place I would love to go someday!

Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

Nice quilts. Love those HSTs!!! There's hundreds of ways to set them. Thanks for sharing photos with us.

You were actually there? What a wonderful trip! The quilts are amazing, wonderful, and beautiful. Thanks for sharing them. They certainly had a lot of triangles. I'd hate to have to quilt through all those seams.

Prague...one of my favorite cities in Europe! Combine that with quilts = heaven....

What a terrific opportunity you had. The quilts you showed were really spectacular. They look like the quilters were willing to put a lot of time into their designs and savored each project.

Wow! Fabulous quilts! Love them all, but have to say I think the tiny triangles are my favorite.
Thanks for the links. Three of my grandparents are of Slavic heritage (one left there just before WW1). When I was little I was told Czechoslovakian (geez, my atlas is old!). Would love to visit that part of Europe some day.

I had the great pleasure of accompanying my husband to Prague in Nov 2007 for a choral recording just as Czech quilters were preparing for their first Czech International Patchwork conference the following spring. I was very fortunate to meet several of the quilt teachers and organizers while my husband was attending rehearsals. Prague is indeed a wonderful beautiful city and the Czech Republic is full of very talented quilters. Their story of how quilting emerged in the CR is great quilt history! Now that I have a blog, I should write about my experience. Have you been more than once?
