Fixed! Friday 13

Welcome again to the next part of Fixed! Friday.

Taking a short coffee break from panic cleaning (surprise visit on Sunday). So I’m a bit in a hurry.

This week’s un-quilt:

Triaxial

Inspired by a drawing I found in a volume of Spektrum der Wissenschaft (Science Spectrum). I later learned it is an ancient pattern, Grünbaum/Shephard have it, too. I made the woven diamond using English paper piecing and appliquéd it onto the background fabric . Because of the light colour I used a thin polyester batting/wadding.

‘Spektrum’ drawing

from Grünbaum/Shephard

Made from cotton fabrics between February 2000 and November 2001 from 968 pieces, this took me 143’15 hours to make. Size is 114 x 202 cms.
