New Quilt

A new quilt project is born: In Memory of Grandma - called like that because the sketch has been designed during the last weeks of my grandma who died last week at the age of 97. The sketch shows a first idea: a mix of stars and hexagons in the colours of a sun rise.

And the first elements are already finished... I will work it in English paper piecing method, like that everything will fit very well together. Colours are not very bright as I did not have a good light today, but the I promise to upload a better foto as soon as the blocks are on my design wall.

Flower Jane - the final

After almost 10 years I finished my Flower Jane and offered the quilt today to my parents for their golden wedding anniversery. I was very excited as I wasn´t sure if the liked it or thought it would be too much. But they really loved it and showed it around to their guest ;-)
The quilt has 4373 patches and measures about 2,20 x 2,20 m.
