The special gift - the personal quilt
Quilts have always been made for special occasions such as weddings, births, confirmations, birthdays - it is far more than just a warming blanket or wall hanging. It requires artistic skill, craftsmanship and perseverance. Patchwork quilts preserve memories, give joy and invite you to dream.

Below is a brief explanation of how a quilt is constructed; It consists of three layers: a front, a filling and a back. The actual quilting is the sewing of these three layers together so that slippage is prevented and the quilt has an additional plastic effect. The top can be customised using a variety of techniques, materials, shapes and colours.

In many cultures, the quilt is often even considered a family heirloom, which is given as a gift on special occasions. The fact that you can hang it on the wall, cuddle with it on the couch or let a baby play on it also makes it incredibly practical.

In consultation with you, I will design the right quilt, which will be made individually for your recipient - as a warming gift for body, mind and soul.
Prices depend on material, pattern (how small the surface should be), size. The filling and material are chosen according to the desired area of use. Feel free to contact me without obligation!
I look forward to hearing from you.

After I had learned a lot of clothing industry during my apprenticeship, subsequent studies and various work placement I noted that I have much more pleasure cutting all imaginable textile materials and putting them in a new unexpected context.

For me, the patchwork quilt is the ideal medium for merging colour, material and pattern into a complex visual mesh, thereby emphasising and preserving the beauty of this material. In order to preserve the current zeitgeist, I mainly use old clothes for my work. My attention is drawn at the visible traces of use such as patches, scrapes and holes, because they tell stories from the past life of the textiles and their wearers.

Knowing how much energy and work has to be used for the production of clothing, sustainable resource-saving use of textiles is particularly important to me.
