Twister (Cut-Sew-Cut-Sew)

Twister (Cut-Sew-Cut-Sew)

This pattern which is known under different names and is based on a "cut-sew-cut-sew" process, has lately gone a little out of fashion in the quilters' scene.

Finishing the Spitzenstuecke Quilt

Spitzenstuecke

It was clear from the start that with its irregularly scalloped edges, the Spitzenstuecke quilt couldn’t just be finished with a “normal” binding. We decided that the quilt needed something “lighter” and a bit different from the usual narrow fabric strip cut on the bias...
