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.

Festival of Quilts - The IBS1 Gallery

What a wonderful, wonderful experience! Our first really big show nearly blew us off our feet and we are still overwhelmed by the warm welcome and the keen interest so many quilters showed for the IBS1 quilts and for our 2nd International Block Swap.

Tomorrow is the big event - 17 quilts from our first International Block Swap will be exhibited at this year's Festival of Quilts in Birmingham. If you are at the show, do come and visit us at stand O12! On the first day, Anke and Johann will welcome you because Jutta is still on the road, but will be at the show from Friday till Sunday.

Jutta took some serious advantage today of the exceptionally hot and sunny weather we have been enjoying (well, not always enjoying!) lately. She took her Sunprinting equipment into the garden and did some experimenting on new angles for one of her favourite techniques to put colour on fabric.

If you are really interested in Sunprinting, we suggest that you keep your calendars free for early September 2014. What would you say to a week of Sunprinting in the south of France?
