Amy is hosting her wonderful and inspiring Quilt Festival again. In the very last minute I decided to participate again, as it was so inspiring last time I did.
This year I would like to enter a quilt which has been quite special to me this year.
It is my Gees Bend and Andalusian inspired Quilt.
I really love this one and am proud to share it with you readers. I hope you like it like I do. And I just can encourage everybody to dive right in and do the free motion quilting. IT IS POSSIBLE!
Now I am off to look for all the wonderful quilts which are shown in the festival.
Some Stats of my entry (No. 568)
Quilt measurement: 45"x65"
Technique: Improv Piecing
Quilting: Freemotion quilting by me on my "Elna Quilting Queen"

So I picked up some Anna Maria Horner fabrics and started a Diamond Hexie thing which is going to look awesome when it is done. I can´t wait until I have all six diamonds finished. Just two more. I can´t wait. I am itching. Tomorrow I will be on a arts and crafts fair here in Berlin and when in a ( unpossible) moment there are no people who want to buy cute scarfs and supercute underwear (have a look here!) I will have a few minutes to go on stitching. I love that about EEP. Always possible to take on the go.
So wish me luck for the fair tomorrow ( need money for more fabric...;-)), and have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

The attempt to repair it myself (do you see the "tools" on the left side of the picture?) didn´t work out. And now it is at the mechanics. It will be about fifty Euro. About twice as much as I paid for it at the thriftstore (including the table). Lucky me.
Unfortunately it will take at least two weeks. Poor me.
So up to more English Paper Piecing.

this post? Again I have the feeling that I want to go, get the vaccum cleaner and wipe the house (this would be really neccessary by the way...).
Is it the fabric I choose? A wonderful Cool Wool in teal and the Drops fabric by Tula Pink. I don´t know. Or is it me, who let every garment look like a duster? Well let me not be unfair to myself. There are definetely things I look awesome in and even the 60ies housewife look starts to please me.
When the other Tova dress comes out of the washing machine I will show it to you, I like that one much better.
This is it for now,
What are you working on at the moment?
Do you like everything you make?
