dear friends,i once bought this bookTrolle, Wichtel, Königskinder: John Bauers nordische Märchenwelt. Mit ca. 30 Märchen ,because i love to read fairytales,but the best of the book were the illustrations from a man called john bauer, you can see the paintings of him here,John Bauer Art Prints ,it is art deco style of the best,and i decided to make a quilt .so i drafted some of the pictures in my eq6 programm,and the blocks with landscapes are from photographies i made in sweden,but i had no ideas for the border a very long time,until i now began to sew the tree...and that was it!i did not need a border for the blocks,i needed a piece for the middle instead,and this is how it looks like,and there will be another border around it. some pieces need a lot of thinking! have a nice week,susi

a tree is growing

dear friends,there was a tree on a quilt in a japanese book,called quilt party 2005,i think it is from yoko saito, and i fell in love with it,there are no patterns in this book,so i had to draft it myself,until now it measures 105x125 cm, but there will be a wide border around it... have a nice week,susi
