Big Quilts

by Heike Schaefer

I did a lot of different quilt sizes. Some quilts are wallhangings and some are to use on the couch or to cover the bed.

Modern Quilts

by Heike Schaefer

After doing the traditional quilts over years I started to experiment. I tried to make my own designs. Then I started to dye my own fabrics. So the quilts changed again more and more. The next step was to quilt by machine.
