Colorful quilt

I am a reader of the German journal "Patchwork Professional" and found a quilt in an old issue. Their quilt is called "Crossover". It is worked by Marianne Arens and featured in the 01/2006 issue.

It is sewn exclusively with my own hand-dyed fabrics. I used Procion MX colors.
I quilted it in a different way than shown in my inspiring example. It took me three afternoons. I made two off-center circles and emphasized several blocks, all free machine quilting.

The quilt is not finished yet. I have to make still the border -
anyway - have a look at it. It is pinned to my design wall.

The idea of the quilt lines came actually from the Quilting Arts Magazine.


  1. What a pretty quilt! It looks very complex, but then I saw the pattern. And quilting in just 3 afternoons, now I'm sure I need to learn how to quilt on my sewing machine. By hand it takes forever!

  2. This is beautiful, Anneliese. The colors are great.

  3. It's quite wonderful. The color and movement. Very eye-catching.

  4. Wow, it is beautiful, Anneliese! Fantastic colours.
    Well done!!!

  5. It is magic how the quilt lines change the original pieced quilt.
    Wonderful colors!

  6. Oh my Anneliese this is so wonderful and the colours are great too.

  7. This is a gorgeous quilt Anneliese I love the unusual design, and those coloured fabrics are amazing.

  8. What a wonderful quilt Anneliese, and your free hand quilting is so expertly done. I love all the colours you've used, and am sure this will be a bright and cheery addition to your home. I really must get out my hand dyed fabrics and do something constructive with them. Take care.

  9. Your dyed fabrics are heavenly, Anneliese. Well done on the quilt. Most intriguing design.

  10. Hi Anneliese ,
