Rathauseck Quilt

Rathauseck Quilt

If you have read the Focus on Munich article, you will know where the inspiration for this quilt came from. If you haven't, let us tell you that, in the very centre of Munich, there is a long established shop where you can buy designer clothes, and also, at the rear of the building, all kinds of haberdashery and knitting yarn. The shop is called Ludwig Beck. In their marketing slogan, they call themselves “Ludwig Beck am Rathauseck” which means “at the corner of the town hall”.
