Fall, 2011, Germany

Sure enough, found a quilter in Garmisch. Marion Caspers is responsible for initiating the Alpine Quilters in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. She has lived in the USA and now brings her skills to the area. They were having their quilt show the week after I left so she was really busy but kind enough to welcome me to her studio. I felt right at home in her awesome work room. A project in every corner with a lovely view outside. She has created a technique of layering knit fabric, ala T shirts, that are then painted with hand sewn motifs. Very clever and pretty.

This apple strudel was well worth the strenuous 2 hour hike.

We made it to the top of the Zugspitze, the highest peak in Germany. (2,962 meters) All it took was train, cable car, and gondola.

Imagine the snow and it was October--last years snow!
