In English:

I visited in 2011 in two quilt and patchwork exhibitions in Raisio and Nummela. Both of these places are small localities. At the end of this post there are 12 photos presenting quilted bags which we saw in Vaasa in 2012 in a nationwide exhibition.

En español:

Visitaba en 2011 en dos exposiciónes de Colchas y almazuelas en Raisio et Nummela Ambos lugares son pequeñas localidades. Al final hay 12 fotos que presentan las bolsas acolchadas que hemos visto en Vaasa cuando el 25 de marzo 2012 visitábamos en una exposición nacional.

  1. They are beautiful!!! Just reminded of the hand bags I’m designing for my store but with a more Bohemian look!

    • Hello laviebohemeart.

      So nice to read that You like my post. My wife used to quilt few years ago and that’s why we visit in these exhibitions. Now she is beading, but having interest in quilts. I love them and look at them as “art works”. Those bags are quilted bags made by ordinary people. I love them.

      Happy Friday!

      • You are welcome! I also believe they are work of art!..I’ve never been to an exhibition, but the ones I have seen in magazines or when I’m shopping the Antique store, are so amazing!!!!

  2. Thank you so much for this post. The quilts and bags are just lovely and very inspiring! Also, what a nice venue for displaying them. So nice to see what other countries are doing in the world of quilting. Have a wonderful weekend.

    • Hi Lora.

      I am very happy that You like these. I know that quilting has long traditions in the States, but we are coming in “after train”. In Finland we have nation-wide organization called “Quilting Association Finn Quilt”. It was established in 1990 having about 1800 members. My wife is a member of it too. It is publishing a magazine for members four times in a year and its photos are amazing. I mean it, because when arrives to our mail box we “fight” who shall read it first.🙂

      I have for the future three posts from the annual meeting of Finn Quilt from March. Someday I’ll publish them one by one.

      Thank You for Your comment.

      Have a lovely day!

  3. Thanks for showing these beautiful quilts and handbags. It is hard to pick favorites, although I did like the heart of roses and the angels. The talent of these quilters is absolutely fantastic.

    • Hello George.

      I am glad that You like these. Your selection is great! It is nice that people are doing things by their land and not only looking at television all the time. Of course outdoor life in the nature is one of the best hobbies that we know.

      Thank You leaving Your comment.

      Happy Friday!

  4. What a beautiful exhibition! I’m loving the tiny pieced diamonds pieced into the large quilts. That design would be on my dream list for some day. 🙂 The handbags are beautiful!!

    I’m glad you found my blog. It looks like I will enjoy your blog too. 🙂

    • Hi Jmquilts.

      Thank You. I was delighted very much when You said that these handbags were beautiful. Very seldom in one exhibition there are so many handbags presented.

      Happy week-end!

  6. Beautiful as always, Matti!

    Monday of this week Steven and I visited the Akta Lakota Museum & Cultural Center in Chamberlain, South Dakota and I thought of your quilts posts, believe it or not.

    We saw some gorgeous quilts on display, so how could I not remember all your photos?

    I hope you and your beloved Anja are doing well and that you’re off on yet another adventure.

    • Hello Megtraveling.

      With this post I wanted to give a small glimpse to what people are doing when they come to their homes after works. Many of them have “power” for hobbies. Resting on the couch is not the only joy in the world.

      Thank You commenting. Have a wonderful week-end!

  8. What a show of quilt art! They all are beautiful and fascinating. I found many favorites. That is the kind of art show that I really appreciate because each comes from the heart and mind of a very special person.

    • Hi Terry.

      So kind and wise words thank You. To me, it is a little wonder, that so many in these two small places have so many quilters. In Raisio there are 24564 inhabitants and in Nummela about 12000. Small towns indeed. Vaasa (handbags) was part of nation-wide quilt show, so that is another story to be told sometimes later.

      Happy Saturday!

  12. Wonderful post! The quilts are beautiful – I love seeing quilts from around the globe. Thank you for sharing! Great location too!

    You have inspired me. The quilt guild I belong to is having their bi-annual show this summer. I will have to share photos with all my friends in the blog world too!🙂

    • Hello Connie.

      How nice it was to read Your comment. When You’ll present photos from Your bi-annual show, let me know, please. We have annual quilt exhibition every year and those quilted bags where from that show which was held in last March in Vaasa.

      Thank You commenting.

      Have a wonderful week-end!

  13. That is right, the hand bags are very rare to see on shows like these. Usually is all about blankets..

  15. There are some lovely designs there, Matti. My favourite is the little book at images 14-16, the magnificent red and cream diamond quilt immediately below it, and the Viking longboats. Such a lot of work involved in all these quilts.
    Happy Sunday to you!

  22. Quelle magnifique exposition ! Et quelle inspiration de toutes ces quilteuses finnoises ! Bravo à toutes et merci d’avoir partagé la visite avec nous. J’aime beaucoup le style des “watercolours” (15 et 7) ainsi que la remarquable précision des détails dans le quilt no 2 .Une merveille !
