IBSquilts

All quilts or quilt tops made from blocks from our first International Block Swap

Jarmila's Quilt

Jarmila's Quilt

Jarmila from Slovakia added a large Mariner's Compass as central motif and created a beautiful medallion quilt with the blocks of her IBS team as a frame...

Yukiko's Wallhanging

Yukiko's Wallhanging

Yukiko from Japan decided that she would rather adorn her walls with her IBS blocks than make them into a quilt. What a great idea! And what a brilliant idea to group them together to represent the four seasons!

Brigitte L's Quilt

Brigitte L's Quilt

Brigitte belongs to a very creative team - after Elke and Brunhilde, she is the third from this team to send us a picture of her quilt! And they seemed to work in sync without knowing it - we received their e-mails within a few days.

Brigitte chose a 3x4 layout for her quilt and framed each block in a beautiful green which again is set off by red and white corner sashing squares and red and green borders. As you can see in the picture, it is a fairly large quilt which will keep Brigitte and her husband warm during the Swiss winter.

Brigitte on her IBS experience:

Brunhilde's Quilt

Brunhilde sent us a cheerful picture of a very particular treasure hanging from her clothesline. We sure would like to be the ones to collect the laundry in her household... Whether she would get back her beautiful 3x4 IBS quilt is quite another matter

Elke's Quilt

Elke's Quilt

Elke's quilt, actually her first quilt, because we know that she must have a second package of IBS blocks stashed away somewhere ;-), sports a 3 by 4 layout with narrow red sashing. The white and red borders pick up the light background in the blocks and create a very harmonious overall effect...

Monika's Quilt

Monika's Quilt

Monika from Austria added two blocks to her team's blocks to create this extravagant quilt layout. Framed in a lot of bright red which is set off by smaller blocks, the result is a powerful and lively design which perfectly integrates the diverse blocks....

Gabriele's Quilt

Gabriele's Quilt

Gabriele made her quilt based on a 3 by 4 quilt layout, framed the blocks with dramatic-looking black sashings with red corner squares and gave the quilt a white border, again with red corner stones...

Cordula's Quilt

Cordula's Quilt

Cordula chose yet another very interesting layout for her IBS quilt and included flags for each country represented in her IBS block team. The idea to include the flags was both Cordula's and her daughter's, but Cordula says that creating the flags was more work than sewing the quilt top!

Sigrid L's Quilt

Sigrid L's Quilt

For her IBS quilt, Sigrid from Germany grouped the blocks into colours: the left column of her IBS tryptich contains all the purely red and white blocks, the middle column feature blocks including also blue and the right column carries three blocks with a more autumnal colour scheme...

Ulrike T's Quilt

Ulrike T's Quilt

Ulrike from Germany sent us a "real" picture of her IBS quilt along with a real and really beautiful letter. In a time where we all communicate through e-mails, text messaging, social networks and what not, it is an extraordinary pleasure to get "real" mail for a change! And pictures of finished IBS quilts are nearly as good as receiving block packages... or is it the other way round? ;-)
