Cathédrale Saint-Gatien de Tours, classical Gothic façade, built between 1170 and 1547.
|The façade has lost its ornate statues which were |
destroyed by the Protestants during the religious wars.

The red windows reminded me of Austrian quilter's work, Birgitt, that I met recently in Vienna.
|Birgitt's quilt was made for her daughter. It is entitled, "Life is Colourful".|
She designed it herself.
Her quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted.
The label on the back was embroidered.
