I was at a small quilt show yesterday. After the long Covid pause it was great to get in contact with other quilters again and to look at quilts and fabric.
Here are some of the quilts shown:“Begegnungen” (“Encounters”) by Roswitha Schmit – a striking modern quilt.
“Und jeden Tag geht die Sonne auf” (“And each day the sun rises”) by Zuzana Cider.
This was a full size quilt but imagine that one as a baby quilt – it would be perfect.
“On such a Winter’s Day” by Roswitha Schmit.
Snow is not a common thing around here so when it fell Roswitha grabbed her camera and went for a walk. The pictures were printed on fabric and sewn into a quilt. Buttons, sequins and strips of organza add the shimmer and glitter of snow. A beautiful quilt!
Elisabeth Zechmeister did this 365blocks-quilt.
For a whole year she got a quilt block pattern each day but sewing them took her almost 4 years. What an effort – but well worth it.
Another eye-catching quilt by Roswitha Schmit.
“Let the Sunshine in” by Zuzana Cider.
Little fabric squares sewn into strips make a great impression. The colors of the fabric correspond perfectly with the fall colors outside.
And last but not least this is “Fireworks” by Roswitha Schmit.
She is a master in foundation piecing and this was one of a few mandalas exhibited, each one more stunning than the other.
All in all a small show but well worth the visit. Thank you to the Flic-Flac-Quilters for their efforts!
