This makes us smile: Meeting Quilters from Around the World

This makes us smile: Meeting Quilters from Around the World

Quilt around the World is lots of fun for us here behind the scenes. At least on most days. When deadlines are looming or we are - again - way behind schedule with everything, life becomes hectic and sleep scarce and slightly agitated.

But all these little worries and anxieties are immediately forgotten when we get the opportunity to meet quilters we have "met" through Quilt around the World for real.

50pictures No. 14 - Yellow Doors

This picture is straightforward only at first glance. What looks like two doors at first is really only one door and...? What do you think is behind the second make-believe door?

If you‘d like to see this pair of yellow colour spots, you have to travel to Wales, to Aberaeron, a small harbor on the Welsh coast. Only a stone‘s throw away from these doors, you will find the best ice cream on this planet - made with honey!
