Online Quilt festival, Spring 2009


There is a quilt festival going on.
Don't worry, you don't have to travel. You can see them all here.
Did I tell you about one of my favorite quilts which I made in 1994?
It is a hand applique quilt in Baltimore style. The patterns are from the books of Elly Sienkiewicz. The border pattern is my own.
I made this quilt because I liked the old patterns so much and at that time it was a challenge for me to make such a quilt. Many different applique techniques are used here.
I have hand quilted it in two months because it should be ready for my first exhibition in the Netherlands in November 1994.
The size is 139 cm. 54,5 inch square.
My second favorite quilt can you see here. Also hand sewn and hand quilted.
It seems I had much energy in 1994 :)
