Not a Quilt, but a Quilt Journey...

Hello everybody,

have you ever been on a quilt journey? I love travelling, especially in the USA, and usually write extensive travel reports. Currently, I am updating a travel diary for a trip I made in summer 2005 - one of the best trips I have ever made! I drove round Lake Michigan with short detours to Lake Superiour and Lake Huron and I think that I visited at least one quilt shop every day... ;-)

If you are interested to read about my "adventures", please come to…

Spitzenstuecke

Hello everybody,

I finished this quilt only a few days ago. It is probably my fastest work yet! The piecing is not difficult except for the two set in pieces in the lower right quarter of the quilt, but the free-motion machine quilting did take some time.

All the fabrics in the quilt are…

Quilt finished: 143 Pyramids

Hello everybody,

 

this quilt is fresh off the quilting press, so to speak. Yesterday, I made the last stitches on the binding and today I have started to publish the pattern at Quilt around the World. The triangles in the quilt centres are vintage and I am pretty sure that some of them are feedsacks.…

Free pattern - only until 1 September...

Hello everybody,

"Interactive" quilt ;-)

Hello everybody,

although this picture seems to be a little wobbly and definitely needs to be taken again, I hope you can see enough to make out the "interactivity" in this "quilt". It consists of nine individual framed quilts which can be turned and interchanged when hung on a wall. I have been thinking…

Fabric Sculptures

Hello everybody,

as summer decided to take an extended holiday from his duties, I felt I needed something else to gladden my heart and warm my spirit... This is what I came up with: a fabric bowl made with the help of a balloon, a lot of scraps and a fabric medium to harden the fabric…

A little late for 4 July...

Hello everybody,

although I am not American, I do feel quite impressed by Martha Washington's personality and character! I'm currently reading her biography and this helped spark the inspiration for this quilt. The portrait of Martha Washington is done in a variation of Redwork: I used a backstitch and…

A Smart Way to Store a Smart Phone... ;-)

Hello everybody,

it is a little embarassing: I dont' really know what to do with our phone (a so called smart phone of the fruit persuasion ;-), but at least I made a nice cover for it...
