Dirndl Susi

The 9th block in the American Impressions block series was supposed to be a Southern Belle or a Sunbonnet Sue. Both patterns which would fit in nicely with the Virginia theme underlying the soon to be finished American Impressions Sampler....

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...

There are, admittedly, sources telling other tales, but we prefer this one and find it most suitable for our necklace which was made from a piece of bali fabric in pinks and only the slightest hints of grey and purple – in short, the colours of dawn...

Needle Book

Needle Book

... we decided to create a needle book. Our version is really easy to make, and extremely useful. Our outer cover is a work sample left over from the picture series made for “Crazy Quilting by Hand”, but there is a great variety of other options: a piece of fabric with an interesting pattern, an orphan block, a Confetti picture and much, much more...
