Blue

Wood squills

In the Romantic period, the Blue Flower was a symbol for love, longing and striving for the infinite. Later, she also represented the yearning for distant worlds or things far away; as well as Wanderlust (the love to travel). Anyone wishing to find the Blue Flower needs to be willing to hike long distances; he must be a "Wandervogel" (migrating bird). At least that is how an old German folk song states it.

I do not have to look far for the Blue Flower in the spring - they are growing in my front yard.
Wood squills are very delicate, but gradually the little bulbs spread over a large area and now form a blue-green carpet. Very beautiful!

To give you a chance to find a Blue Flower too I present you with this little princess.

News in a nutshell:

Tribute to Mary Simon

Another project finished: Tribute to Mary Simon

The appliqué was done fairly quick, but I could not decide on a finishing solution. Last year I finally added a border to the lush Baltimore block and quilted it. I think he looks very beautiful!

Refilled. Have a look!

I am happy about every photo you send me of a finished project made after my samples! Unfortunately there are times when I do not find time to edit and add them to the respective galleries. Lately pictures were hung in these galleries:

Year of Flowers and Flowerbed
Spring Awakening and Spring Mystery 2011
Tulips and Petrilla, the chicken

Inspired by the National Parks

US National Parks in Quilts

USA has more than 50 National Parks. Not all of them are as well-known as the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone NP, but each park protects a spectacular landscape. The national Park Service, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary, ensures that nature is protected and that visitors can explore via secure paths. A very important task. For the anniversary, many quilters created a quilt covering one aspect (landscape , flora or fauna) for each of the parks.

My topic is the Rainforest in Olympic National Park in the northwestern United States. My quilt is a vertically hanging landscape quilt - paper pieced of course. Please understand that I cannot show pictures before the book about the quilts and the parks has been published. This will be the case in the early summer of 2016.

Information about the National Park quilts and the planned exhibitions can be found on Site in English these pages. A small glimpse of some quilts can be seen there as well.

Next Exhibit:
January 21 - 24, 2016 at the Site in English Road to California (entire collection),
Ontario, California
