Behind The Scenes

Behind the Scenes gives you just that: a peek behind the curtains of Quilt around the World. You will have the opportunity to get a glimpse of the making of Quilt around the World, our smaller and bigger successes and what in a film would be called an 'outtake'. You will, for example, be able to watch Johann sewing his first quilt block or Jutta getting desperate in the midst of piles and piles of scraps that refuse to get organized.

EQ8 Workroom - Live Online Classes

EQ8 Workroom - Live Online Classes

What we would never have thought possible before Corona is now part of everyday life for many of us: work meetings and school lessons, family reunions and exhibitions, even entire quilt festivals are currently taking place in virtual space.

Also we at Quilt around the World have already made some surprisingly positive experiences with the first EQ8 software courses via video conference using MS Teams and have developed special EQ8 course concepts for newbies and advanced EQ8-users. At the moment, we offer these courses especially for our German-speaking community, because for many non-native quilters it is not so easy to find their way around the English EQ8 Software. Besides, there are already many very good courses in the English-speaking world.

Virtual Exhibition: 10 Years Quilt around the World

10 Years Quilt around the World #virtualquiltexhibition #quiltshow

Unbelievably, Quilt around the World celebrates its 10th anniversary this autumn! Looking back on all our past and present activities, putting all the participants' beautiful and outstanding work on the walls and thinking of the friendships with quilters from all over the world made the setting up of "10 Jahre - 10 Years Quilt around the World" a rather festive experience....

Visit the Artist: Brigitte Lüthi

As for the entire planet, Covid19 made fundamental changes also to the quilting world. No shows, very little possibilities to meet other quilters, closed quilt shops. This is a sacrifice we all have to make. At the same time, we keep telling ourselves that we should be grateful for all the little joys and opportunities we still have.

Much more than little joy was involved in our private visit to Brigitte Lüthi's workroom in Ebnat-Kappel in Switzerland...

Colour Dreams - Color Grab meets EQ8

Colour Dreams #patchwork #aninspirationaday #colour

Over the last weeks, we have occasionally shared results from Jutta's new "playground" - the Colour Dreams quilt designs. If you haven't seen these previous posts, please go to "Colour Dreams - Autumn Leaves" which is the first "chapter" in this adventurous colour experiment.

Now there is some progress - we are pleased to invite you to follow our tutorial showing how to combine results from the app "Color Grab" with the patchwork design software EQ8.

Colour Dreams - The Autumn Leaves Story Continues

It started out as a little playing around on Jutta's telephone. Now the "story" auf the Autumn Leaves photo takes up speed - the fabric for the quilt project "Autumn Leaves" have been purchased!

A Bucket Full of Oranges...

Octagon Patchwork Block #patchwork #octagonny #aninspirationaday

As you already know, we really like octagons (see also the sneak preview of "Octagonny"!). And, as it happens, we also love fresh orange juice. This is the reason why we buy oranges by the bucket which we also consider to be reasonably sustainable because you can reuse the buckets afterwards...

With archiTEXTure, We celebrate! and our Bauhaus Special, you might think that there is already a lot going on on the Quilt around the World stage for everyone to see. Behind the scenes, we are cooking up some more exciting ideas which will be front and centre next year. One of these projects will be "Octagonny", a series of octagon blocks to be published in a two weeks rhythm on our brand-new online learning platform. As usual with detailed instructions and step-by-step diagrams so piecing these exciting blocks will be a piece of cake!

Finding intriguing colour combinations is one thing. Playing around with technical gadgets yet another. But how can such accidental findings be advanced to become a beautiful quilt?
