The name of my miniature quilt is "Enchanted Houses".

Wunderful cuffs from the early 1920s, textile embellishment for simple dresses - I was given them a while ago as a gift. They came in an old cardboard box, carefully pressed, yellowed from the years of lying around unused. When I looked at them, they changed into roofs. Together with a few hand-dyed fabric scraps which I received from an textile artist friend, the enchanted houses came into life. The colour purple emphasizes the unreal, the floating state between day and dream.
