Visit to Quiltekroken (quiltshop in Bergen, Norway)

I'm been busy lately, but here are some pictures from my Bergen-trip.
Windows of the quiltshop Quiltekroken.
Temptation.... :-)
BOM with heart-motifs.
The same quilt from an different angel to show the quilting.
New fabrics in exciting colours. A suitcase filled with goodies.
AnnAKa's tablerunner "Ung løper".
This quilt made me think of sunflowers.
The tablerunner "Ung løper" again. Different colors make a diversity.
A pillow made of red and white fabrics.
The European Capital of Culture is a city designated by the European Union for a period of one year during which it is given a chance to showcase its cultural life and cultural development. A number of European cities have used the City of Culture year to transform their cultural base and, in doing so, the way in which they are viewed internationally. Bergen was an European Capital of Culture in 2000. The manhole cover in the streets of Bergen is called "Bekkalokk" and the city replaced the old ones before 2000.
In 2003 Bergen Quiltelag had a quiltingcompetion among their members. Margunn Vatshelle won with her "Bekkalokk" in fabrics and patchwork. Her quilt is amasing artwork both in colours and technique. You can admire it in the quiltshop :-)
Hearts in hearts.
Babyquilt with bear-stitchery. Cute.
A lovely quilt made of many stitchery blocks and wonderful colours.
High up on a shelf; youthful bags.

Tablerunner with hearts.
A taste of summer......
Disappearing )-patch-technique is used for making this throw.
Witch-tablerunner from AnnAKa to the left and tablerunner with roses from ???? to the right. Both really fine.

I will be in Bergen in June and would like the address of your shop as I'd love to visit. I don't find the address on your blog.
