1. When did you begin quilting?
I started quilting 16 years ago. A friend of mine showed me a quilt and I loved it. She gave me a book about quilting and I found a picture of a quilt that I really fell in love with. So I started quilting without any experience. I bought books about quilting, took quilting classes and have been quilting ever since.
2. Why do you quilt?
I just love to work with different fabrics, I enjoy the variety of colors and patterns and I think, meanwhile, I can’t live without quilting anymore.

4. What was your inspiration for your Quilt Festival quilt? (above)
Actually there was no inspiration. I saw a quilt like this in a quiltshop in Uelzen and was fascinated. The pattern of this quilt was a real challenge and I fought that if I manage to sew this quilt, this would really be a big step forward.

5. Do you sew other things?
Besides quilting I also love embroidery.

6. Anything else you would like us to know about you?

4 years ago, I started with English Paper Piecing and love this very much. I once saw a hexagon quilt with 12000 pieces and decided I wanted to sew my own. So 2 years ago I started with my hexagon quilt “La Passion”. I`m almost done with it and when it is finished it will consist out of 17000 pieces. It is my own design and the pattern is available on my blog.
