60° Double Grid (Quilting Motif)

60° Double Grid (Quilting Motif)

The 143 Pyramids quilt is quilted entirely by hand which we found quite appropriate for a quilt consisting largely of original 1930s fabrics. However, the very lively prints which make up the entire quilt centre made it clear from the start that a complicated quilting pattern would be casting pearls where they couldn’t be properly appreciated. A little research into typical 1930s quilting patterns showed several grid solutions which we changed into a double grid based on the omnipresent 60°...

Spitzenstücke Assembly

Spitzenstücke Assembly

The Spitzenstücke quilt consists of four major blocks of differently sized rectangles which don’t present a huge challenge, as such, as most of the sewing is straight piecing. The only difficult part is the set in pieces in block A. If you don’t like setting in pieces, we suggest that you simply cut shape A into two pieces to make the sewing easier. Measurements are given for the version with the inset piece...

Fabulous

We love shawls. We have loved them ever since we discovered how feminine, yet practical a light shawl can be: draped over bare shoulders in late summer when an evening breeze brings on some shivers, wound around a neck in early autumn to improve the warmth of light jackets, or just flung over a shoulder to smarten up a simple outfit at the very last minute.

We also love sunprinting. Especially using plastic fake lace table cloths. So we thought that a light fake lace cotton shawl would be just the thing to wind up a very satisfactory sunprinting season. The result is “Fabulous”, although we say it ourselves...

Interactive 9Patch

Interactive 9Patch

...for a long time we have wanted to create a quilt that can be changed by the people looking at it! It took us some months to come up with a concept that might achieve the desired effect and this is the result: A huge Ninepatch “block” made up of nine small, framed quilts whose (machine quilted) quilt lines seem to travel across the space between the individual blocks...

Four – Ships

Four – Ships

Sesterces are meant to be quick creative activities which allow us to try one or more techniques in a small project. For us, this usually serves the purpose of focusing our minds on whether to include new techniques in our Techniques section or not. The “Four – Ships” Sesterce is a great example because it uses three different colour manipulation techniques: Sunprinting, frottage and stencilling... (8 August 2011)
