Posted on August 26th, by Amy in Featured Quilter. 10 comments

Happy Friday everyone!  Today’s featured quilter is Miriam.  Miriam posts about her sewing adventures at berlinquilter, and I hope you enjoy getting to know her better!

1. When did you begin quilting?

I began quilting about a year ago.

 30´s Double Wedding Ring Quilt Made with Aneelas Pickledish Quiltalong

2. Why do you quilt?

I see quilting as an art, like painting, but because I can´t paint, i make my artwork with the wonderful fabrics which are out there.

3. What is your favorite quilting tip?

I have no special quilting tip, but as I am a fast sewer, I love chain piecing!

 Poem Quilt

4. What was your inspiration for your Quilt Festival quilt?

My inspiration for the poem quilt was my love for poems, words and little sayings in all kind of arts. What also inspired me was my very personal desire for the real love which I am sure is out there for everybody!

5. Do you sew other things?

I am a fashion designer with a little shop in Berlin, Germany. I sew apparel everyday. I can´t imagine my life without sewing and creating.


Thanks for sharing Miriam!  I love your poem quilt – the colors are fantastic, as is the poem itself!

Feel free to nominate a quilter that you would like to get to know better, by emailing me.  I look forward to the features each week – I hope you do too!

  1. I don’t know if you would consider a quilt guild BUT I attended our last evening and the Downers Grove, Illinois quilt guild was there selling raffle tickets for their quilt. This quilt WON first place at the Paduca (sp), Kentucky show for group quilts. It is STUNNING and belongs in a museum it is so beautiful. Stunning is the only word I can think of to describe it.

    Here’s their link.

    I’m pretty much a novice at this type of quilting and am totally intimidated.
