Busy weeks have passed.....

... and I have accomplished sooo much! After my 3-day-trip to Prague (where I visited the Patchworkmeeting) I was so inspired and creatively stimulated that I started right away with a quilt that I had wanted to make since I had that book.

I wrote about  previously, A Quilters Mixology by Angela Pingel - I  love those curves, waves and patterns. But never dared to make it because I haven´t done any curve sewing yet. At QuiltCon in Austin I bought a ruler with Convex and Concave curves so I finally had no excuse not to try!

I love the Medallion Baby Quilt in Angelas´book so that´s the one I chose. There were several things that I had to try out first: pinning the curves completely before sewing but that was too much effort and didn´t turn out well. So I tried with three pins only (the same bad result), in the end I did it without any pins at all and...... it turned out great! I watched a video on Youtube a couple of months ago where a lady did the curve sewing without any pins and to be true, it really was the best way for me, too.

That´s the Medallion Baby Quilt from Angela Pingels´ book.

And here´s my version:

I love to hand-quilt....


As the babys´name is Sinah I think the Love Ring pattern is perfect with its´ oriental curves and waves.
