Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks

To my eyes quilts are textile landscapes - mountains and valleys in lively colors, enhanced by the magical effects of light. This is doubly true for landscape quilts.

Waldspaziergang

I saw women working on a quilt for the first time on a US campground in the seventies. They explained that the quilt was to be a wedding gift for a friend. They were all contributing blocks as well as quilting to the project.Since that day the thought of a quilt of my own would not leave me alone. However, not until 1999 did I find the time, money and opportunity to take a quilting class.This is the result:

Lone Star

Quickly more quilts followed, first based on the designs of others, then on my own.I have learned many techniques from books and magazines and I have experimented on my own. I also continue to take classes with well known quilt artists. I mostly design wall quilts based on my own photographs, but I also create traditional blocks and large-sized quilts.

Over the course of time I specialized on paper piecing patterns. In addition I developed some useful tools and many tips.

My professional background has come in handy in developing my own classes which I have enjoyed teaching since 2003.I am motivated by the thought that not all my accumulated knowledge and skills will one day pass away with me.Therefore I pass on as much information as possible to the participants of my workshops and I am always happy to help out and answer your questions.

I live with husband and cat in a small town in Germany at the eastern edge of the Ruhr Area. I am a grandmother of three and that is why I know that quilts are very durable even when they are loved and washed a lot. I hope this will apply to me too.
