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... (30 August 2011) --- Free until 1 September 2011!---

Anpfiff (Kick-off)

Anpfiff (Kick-off)

It wouldn’t be exaggerated to call Germany a football (soccer) crazy country. When there is a major tournament, such as World or European Championships, social intercourse seems to stop for the duration. It is no longer possible to meet with friends or to get seats in your favourite Biergarten unless it doesn’t have a huge screen for the football fans to glue their eyes to.

... As Germany is host to the ladies’ 2011 Football World Championship, we thought it only right to honour all football playing women with this large-sized felt bag resembling a football pitch... (27 June 2011)

Die 5 Grazien (The 5 Belles)

Die 5 Grazien (The 5 Belles)

The 5 Belles were inspired by our latest acquisitions for our Accuquilt GO! fabric cutter. Among the available dies, there are several very pretty flower designs and we wanted to try them all in one project. Should you neither own an Accuquilt GO! fabric cutter with the dies used here, nor have access via one of your quilting friends, don’t despair: We have designed five “graceful” flower motifs for you to download (see next article in this book). And you could of course always design your own Belles of the meadow... (26 June 2011)

Labyrinth

Labyrinth

Scraps have played a prominent role here at Quilt around the World almost from the very beginning. You only have to read the articles in the Scrap Management book (A book at Quilt around the World is a set of instructions with its own table of contents. Most books can be found in the projects section, but most articles in the technique section are also organized as books.) and you’ll know that we are really passionate about really small shapes cut from leftovers “normal” people would probably throw away...

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”.
