Welcome to my entry to Blogger's Quilt Festival!

First I would like to thank Amy for hosting the wonderful Blogger's Quilt Festival twice a year. It is amazing how many wonderful and talented bloggers show their work - it's pretty easy to find a lot of inspiration. Than I would like to thank YOU! If you followed the link at Amy's - welcome to my little corner of blogworld, I feel honored you are spending some of your precious time over here. And if you visit me frequently - thank you for friendship and your encouragement on my way, it means a lot to me.
And here's my entry this fall! The inspiration came from one of my Journal Quilts, I loved it so much that I wanted to do it bigger. I guess you could say it's a wholecloth. I embroidered on black cotton, using white and orange yarn. The quilting was done with black thread. It's not a big quilt, it only measures 10" square. I mounted it on white canvas. And I think this could be the first one in a series ... this kind of line-stitching fascinates me!
Thanks for visiting me - now jump over to Amy's and enjoy all the other wonderful quilts !
Zuerst mal "Danke" an Amy, die zweimal im Jahr dieses wunderbare Blogger's Quilt Festival veranstaltet. Ganz viele wunderbare Quilterinnen und Bloggerinnen zeigen ihre Werke - es ist so einfach, jede Menge Inspiration zu finden. Dann möchte ich dir danken, liebe Leserin (loder ieber Leser) - Danke, daß du mir ein bißchen deiner wertvollen Zeit schenkst, das bedeutet mir sehr viel! Und nochmal DANKE an all die, die mich schon ein ganzes Stück hier auf meinem Weg begleitet haben - das freut mich, sehr sogar, und es spornt mich immer wieder an.
Jetzt aber zu meinem Beitrag zum Herbst-Festival: er entsprang meinen Journal Quilts - einer davon gefiel mir so sehr, daß ich ihn in einer größeren Version sehen wollte. Man könnte ihn wohl als Wholecloth bezeichnen - auf schwarze Baumwolle habe ich mit weißem und orangenem Garn gestickt. Gequiltet wurde er mit schwarzem Garn. Der Quilt ist immer noch nicht groß, er ist nur ca 25 cm im Quadrat. Abschließend habe ich ihn auf einen weiß bemalten Keilrahmen montiert. Und irgendwie werde ich das Gefühl nicht los, daß dieser Quilt der erste in einer Serie ist - diese Art Linien zu sticken fasziniert mich doch ziemlich ;-))
Nochmals - Danke für deinen Besuch ! und jetzt empfehle ich dringend einen virtuellen Sprung auf Amy's Seite, um ganz viele wunderbare Quilterinnen zu entdecken ;-))

Huhu, Frauke,

dass mir der Quilt / das Quiltlet gefällt, weißt du ja schon. Aber dass ich immer gern bei dir vorbeigucke, muss auch mal gesagt werden. Danke also dafür, dass du immer so fleißig postest.

Kathy said...

This is a very nice stitchery/quilt. Journal quilting can help fiber artists learn so many techniques.

I love the starkness and yet the flow, the sense of space.

What a fun idea for a quilt project, i love it. I found your blog from Amy's post, but I am glad I stopped by. Can't wait to see what you create next!

Beautiful hand stitching!

Allie said...

This is really a stunning quilt! The effect of the embroidery on the black background just makes it perfect!

Sharon said...

This is so wonderful! I like all your stitching, it gives it quite a "look". I like mounting little quilts on canvas too! I hope to do more of it in the future.

And I agree with Becky - it does remind me of Aussie Aboriginal designs. Cool!

Maureen T. said...

Frauke, you're quilts are stunning! You have such talent. Thanks for your comment on my blog about the writing on my chalkboard. It's very true that as artists we really need to lose our fear of being wrong.
