Firmament

Firmament

The design for the Firmament quilt was created during a particularly boring meeting at one of our former employers which, as usual, didn’t have any useful outcome. Except of course the Firmament blocks and quilt setting!

The quilt block and the quilt are wonderful for using up a huge quantity of scraps. This version of the quilt uses up a total of 1,288 multicoloured half square triangles, 912 background half square triangles and 240 half square triangles and 148 squares in black... (12 June 2011)

SommerSonnenStrahlen

SommerSonnenStrahlen

The SommerSonnenStrahlen quilt (“Summer Sunbeams”) was inspired by the colours very often associated with summer: blue for the sky and perhaps also for the sea and yellow for the sun. This is such a happy combination that it rarely fails to attract dreamy gazes and closer scrutiny... (24 May 2011)

Harlekin Assembly

Harlekin Assembly

The Harlekin quilt has a horizontal setting with 16 Harlekin blocks that are separated from each other by 5” (12.5 cm) wide pieced sashings. We have set the blocks in alternating orientation, i.e. in one block the diagonal runs from top left to bottom right and vice versa.

The quilt centre is framed by two borders with corner squares. The inner medium blue border is 2” (5 cm) wide, the outer border cut from burgundy red fabric is 8” (20 cm) wide.... (originally published on 24 February 2011)

Harlekin

Harlekin

The design process for the Harlekin quilt started with the multicoloured striped fabric we used in the four patch blocks. We had only a very limited quantity of each fabric which had been sitting in our stash for quite some time. Moreover, before this project, we had not found working with striped fabrics very easy.

We complemented the striped fabrics, which by the way are Kaffe Fassett fabrics, with cotton fabrics which have a different coloured warp and weft threads. The effect is stunning: The colour seems to change when you look at the fabrics from different angles... (originally published on 27 January 2011)

Ocean Waves Quilt Assembly

Ocean Waves Assembly

In our version, the Ocean Waves blocks are set diagonally which means using half and quarter blocks to fill the gaps on the sides and the corners. This quilt has no sashings and therefore lots of seam intersections. Care is needed to insure that all the triangles join together nicely.... (7 January 2011)

Ocean Waves Quilt

Ocean Waves Quilt

The Ocean Waves block is very close to Jutta’s heart. Not only is she again and again drawn to quilt patterns that later turn out to be variations of this beautiful block, but guess which block featured on her birthday in her perpetual quilt calendar?

Lady of the Lake Quilt

Lady of the Lake Quilt

This quilt came to us as an already finished vintage quilt top. It is not very remarkable and very far from being of museum quality....
