Fall is making great progress and now you can feel that winter is near.
I made my first snowball two weeks ago when
we were at the mountains wandering.
A lovely cloudy day!
In the studio, it hasn't happened much since Rikstäckets annual meeting,
but a quilt was finished just in time for the exhibition.
This is the quilt that I started to think about for more than a year ago.
I started but threw everything away and started all over again.
Crazy but necessary!
I needed to take on the project from a new different angle.
I have worked with both piecing, fabric paint and transmission of images.
It has been very exciting.
This is Design What?
I don't think my relative ( SnickarPer) Carpenter Per ever pondered the words design and shape. He thought about the function and availability of materials. Today is this worn ragged wooden chair a fond memory in great contrast to today's cool design...tomorrows antique? Old and modern ... rag rugs and carpets in modern expression. The rag rugs are quilted and the modern printed with fabric paint.
Quilting Design all over the quilt!
I have a special feeling for chairs :) and this is one of several quilts on the theme .... maybe there will be more? Happy Quilting! Margreth
The reason is that I lost my mother in may. I miss her a lot every day...thoughts and memories. I have so many things to thank her for. One thing.....
It's my mother's doing that I have become a good craftsman.
She's the one who inspired and thought me how and we shared the great joy that it brings to create something unique. THANK'S MOM!
Well after a while life goes on......even though you don't believe it. I had promised to participate in an exhibition in Kaxås, Offerdal. Offerdal is where I grew up. This is where Lisbeth Genstrand runs a shop with interior and clothes on their family farm. A lovely place! Atelje Lisbeth
You are greeted by a stunning view over the countryside
a Welcome billowing in the wind ...
...you know you found the right place.
Jämtkviltens local group West has combined their quilts for an exhibition and I was invited to show some of my quilts. Here are some of their great work!
My ambition was to at least show you one new quilt
but it was not finished....... so it became golden oldies being exhibited.
Look at this!
Lisbeth and my Red Cottages in the bakgroud.
In one room hangs Cat Walk and Coltsfoot.
It is a little short on space in the house so the stairwell may also be used for exhibition space.
Well... if you are passing by....
please check Atelje Lisbeth and revel in lots of quilts and great stuff to buy in the shop.
The exhibition runs until Sunday July 7 at 12.00-15.00
