last time, i visited london, i brought back a big roll of different material, all cut in the same size of stripes from old cloth and curtains etc. all in cotton, all different patterns and colors. out of this, i made the following quilt and hand embroidered all the fields wich have been in “boring” uni-colors

the backside of the quild as well as the other halfs of my square patterns have been in a wonderful, havy and old linnen, i once found in a shop here in berlin.

please be aware, that the picture in my banner is done while working on this quilt. as it has been very timeconsumming, i had my cat going mad on me, allways working on the quilt and not on HIS pleasure, so he was sitting every now and than IN the quilt, to wach me :-)

Material Notes

recycled cotton in different patterns and colors

    This is incredible. I really admire the patience it must have taken to complete this project. I have actually never made a quilt because I just think of the hours it takes and then back off! Well done :)

    Very nice. I am sure that it is very satisfying to finally complete it.
