Quilting for Summer

Flower Power

May 2014
sihe: 67 x 78 inch
machinepieced and machinequilted

The flowers of this quilt were block of the month paper piecing patterns in 2014/2015.

Designing these patterns I wasn't so lifelike as usual but let fantasy flowers bloom. This way I could make use of my colorful patterned fabrics.

The pattern is available in my patternshop and you can take a look at each  single block there, too.

Roses and Stars

December 2012
size: 44,5 x 57 inch
handqppliquéd, hand- and machinepieced, machinequilted

Sewing this quilt I combined my love for roses and eight-pointed stars. The roses are handappliquéd, the stars are english paper pieced by hand. All other sewing and quilting is done by machine, so the quilt gets finished in time.

The pattern is available in my patternshop and you can take a look at each  single block there, too.
