Wheels – finished

Finally! It’s quilted, it’s squared up, it’s finished. And if it were only two centimeters wider, it wouldn’t have fitted the wall in my hallway between the doors.

Finished size is 111 x 142 cms. The pattern comes from the Fall 2013 issue of Burda Patchwork Quilts & Applizieren and is designed by Evelyn Zuber (original title ‘Mother Earth’).

It’s entirely hand pieced using the English paper piecing method, the center stars in each wheel are hand quilted as well as the rust and grey pentagons in the two big wheels. The binding was machine stitched to the front and hand sewn to the back.


Circle of Friends – UL 20

Another finish today. This time it’s Circle of Friends.

The top is machine pieced. I’ve hand quilted simple circles with three different GĂŒtermann Sulky threads.

Finished size 72 x 72 cms

Welcome to the next part of Fixed! Friday.

Last working day before I’m having two weeks off. I hope to get some serious business done – my list of projects is endless. With a little luck, I will at least finish one or two of them. And yes, patchwork is on the list, too. 😉


From Pattern On Pattern by Ruth B. McDowell. Original size of the smallest triangle was 7.5 cms/3″, but I reduced this to 2.5 cms/1″, because otherwise I would now be the owner of a really huge piece.

Hand quilted with gold, silver and copper metallic threads.

Started 1994, finished September 1995, 107 x 93 cms, 792 pieces

Next week on Fixed! Friday: Kristall

Welcome to the next part of Fixed! Friday.

Another week without patchwork. I did some knitting at work because the boss had taken a couple of days off. Also some more rearranging of my blogs, hoping to start my photoblogging again on the weekend.

Cabin Lights

The pattern comes from Quiltmaker magazine #39. One of the few pieces I have ever quilted. I used silver and gold metallic threads for my hand quilting.

Made between July 1995 and July 1997, 81 x 81 cms, 792 pieces

Next week on Fixed! Friday: SchrÀge Typen

Fixed! Friday 33

Welcome to the next part of Fixed! Friday.

Still nothing new on the patchwork front, but I finished knitting a scarf (and started two new ones). Still have to weave in the ends on this one and a couple of others.

Bargello Quilt

I’ve started this way back in 1992/93. One of the few quilted items I made so far. It keeps me warm on cold days.
