Town at the sea
















96cm x 136cm

hand dyed cotton, commercial cotton

freemotion quilted on a Longarm Machine


I lived a long time along the baltic sea in a small viallage in Germany. Some houses stood direct at the harbour.

The houses in the quilt are free cutted. There is no template behind them. That makes them all individual. The fabric for the houses I hand dyed myself. To cut and sew without a template makes the work very authentic. Also the quilting is done freehand.
