There was a judged show of quilts made by members the Spanish Association of Patchwork - a country-wide guild. There were seven other exhibits of the work of expert quilters from around the world, including Keiko Goke, Maria Luisa Gutierrez, Pat Holly, Libby Lehman, Nancy Crow, Quilts of India, and Quilts of Japan. Each exhibit had its own venue in different locations around Sitges. This made for lots of walking and a bit of map reading and exploring (signage wasn't that great), but the greatest benefit was the dispersal of the crowds of people so that one could enjoy the quilts without too many people in the same place at once. The exception would be Saturday, when there were lines to get into each venue.
Here are three favorites from the judged show. There were many very complex quilts, but these were the ones I liked the best. (I will post pictures of the rest of the exhibits soon.)
