In English:

Annual Quilt show in Vaasa. Part 1.

It was in March when we drove to the town of Vaasa to visit annual nationwide Quilt show. The distance to Vaasa from Helsinki is 422 kilometers / 262 miles. This means that we stayed overnight there and enjoyed our mini holiday.

I took plenty of nice photos and due to that I had to divide them into three parts. This part has 51 photos. Enjoy Quilts and Patchwork.

En español:

Anual espectáculo de almazuela en Vaasa.Parte 1.

Fue en marzo cuando nos fuimos a la ciudad de Vaasa a visitarla el Anual espectáculo de almazuela a escala nacional. La distancia a Vaasa desde Helsinki es 422 kilómetros o millas 262. Esto quiere decir que quedamos una noche allí y disfrutamos de nuestro fin de semana de mini vacaciones.

Sacaba un montón de bonitas fotos y debido a eso tuve que dividirlos en tres partes. Esta parte tiene 51 fotos. Disfruten de almazuelas.

  2. I’ve got a lot of blog catching up to do at the moment, but these are BEAUTIFUL, … I wanted to say that Little Mr who looked at these with me was particularly interested and very partial to the one in mostly black/white with all the little cars and the arrows down the sides… now I’m in trouble because he’s hinted (in typical lack of subtlety of 7 year old boys) that this would be a perfect gift for his next birthday, and wistfully mentioned that I should try and contact this quilts owner so I can buy it for him!

    • Hello Kiwidutch.

      Thank You for Your comment. I checked from the original photo that who made that quilt and found the name Anneli Virta who seems to be the member of

      Vaasan Tilkkupatteristo.

      These sections of quilts have blogs in BlogSpot.fi, but there are no contact addresses. I am sorry. One possibility is if You make a comment on some post and tell what You want.

      Happy Friday!

  9. They are all so beautiful – amazing work – and a lovely display. I can see the Finnish influence – lots of boats, nautical themes, water & ice. I couldn’t pick a favourite – I know how much work goes into every one of them. Thank you for sharing.

  13. These quilts are beautiful. You have many talented quilters in Finland. I especially enjoyed the quilts with the sailboat designs, but that anchor is very impressive as well. Thank you for sharing these with us.

    Comment by seniorhiker — August 11, 2012 @ 03:11 | Reply

    • Hi George.

      I appreciate Your comment very much. I think that sailing boat designs are popular for those quilters who live by the sea and the town of Vaasa is on the Western coast of Finland.

      Nice week-end.

    • Clive and Adi.

      Thank You very much for Your your kind words. She lived to the age of 93, even though she had to overcome during her life eight surgical operations. Invitation to the Heaven released her from earthly problems. Time heals grief, so I believe. I remember her thru many photos and a small video which I took this year will enliven her memory.

      • Hello again, Matti;
        Yes, time does heal grief but grief never vanishes – it just gets softer. I lost all my close relatives now. My Father was 95, his sister, my favourite Aunt was also 95. I did my best for them – that is a comfort.
        Now I have another comfort; your lovely song “Oi Muistatko Viela Sen Virren”. We don’t have a song like that in UK. Although so sad, it does bring so much comfort.
        Adi & I will light a candle for you and yours,
        Clive and Adi.

        • Hi Clive and Adi.

          Thank You. You are talking wise words. That hymn by Oskar Merikanto, is really beautiful and freely translated it is: “Oh, do you remember still the hymn that was sung when we were child”. There are hundreds of recordings from that. Oskar Merikanto has composed one of the most famous Waltzes in Finland: Kesäillanvalssi = “Summer evening’s Waltz”.

          Matti.

  19. Quelle magnifique exposition ! Encore tellement de talentueuses quilteuses finlandaises. J’aime beaucoup les quilts inspirés par la mer (24, 25, 26). Le quilt flamboyant (48) est une merveille !
    Merci Matti pour ces photos pleines d’inspiration.

      J’apprécie beaucoup ton commentaires. Cette semaine est toujours triste pour moi, parce que ma mère est décédée samedi dernier.

      Belle journée.

  20. Cher Matti, comme je comprends ta tristesse. Perdre une maman est si douloureux. Je l’ai vécu moi aussi il y a quelques années. Mais je sais aussi qu’une maman ne nous quitte jamais vraiment. Nous sommes une partie d’elle, une maman reste proche de nous. Je t’envoie toute ma sympathie et mon amitié ainsi qu’aux tiens.

    • Salut Isa.

      Merci pour vos mots de consolation. Je sais que cela prendra du temps. L’année dernière, mon beau-père mourait et ma femme n’était pas capable de faire des choses pendant de nombreuses semaines.

      Mes pensées: “Il est temps pour le chagrin et il est temps pour le bonheur”.

  21. Sorry to hear about your Mother Matti,
    My condolences to you and your family. My Oma (Grandma) passed away just two months short of her 100th Birthday, she was extra special to me since my Mother died young of cancer. Time will make things easier and you will be able to remember all the good times you had together with happiness and not sadness.
    The Dutch wish people “strength” at these times so I wish you … “sterkte!”

  23. Hello Matti,
    I am asking you for a favour. In two weeks I will present a MS Power Point slide show of our holiday in Finland. It will be for our church group, “Friend to Friend” This is for older people who meet on Tuesday afternoons. I will show photos of our time in Helsinki and I will play Finnish music (Kanteleeni, Oi Muistatko. . . etc.
    Please, may I use some of your photos of Finnish countryside? I want everybody to see what a beautiful country you live in and why I like to go there for holidays.
    Clive, Isle of Wight.

    • Hi Clive and Adi.

      Affirmative. I’ll answer to You better by email. Today my time goes mainly when storing first part of our winter firewood to our home wood store. It is hard job.

      Matti.
