6. Europäische Quilt-Triennale in Heidelberg-Ziegelhausen
click for more information. It is running till the end of the year.
I show you only a few of 46 wall hangings - don't be disappointed
more photos will come soon.
In this little old church the exhibitons are displayed. There are three
floors. We are sitting in the middle.
Looking up one can see the fantastic roof timbering
of the little church - so well restored.
And it is here on top where I saw the well-known "hand" of
Elsbeth Nusser Lampe.
|Sosme Flowers - Eslbeth Nusser-Lalmpe, Germany|
Above and below: It is one of my favorites.
I made a class with Elsbeth some three years ago
together with my patchwork friends -
so no wonder I feel drawn to it - it was a wonderful class.
The panels are beautifully sewn.
|Mellowo Yellow - Elizaabeth Brimelow, England|
Love that one - I saw real good silk, lovely colours
shapes out of the garden - I could live with this one
for years I think.

And here at once
is the winner of the show of 45 exhibits.
|Luftschloss - Susanne Klinke, Germany|
The Escher-like contruction is very well sewn - my
compliments - the addition - very contemporary - albeit
very well made, coloured pieces of tulle made up the faces
handsewn together on a fluffy background.
She won the 1. prize. You can see a glimpse of Susanne Klinke
on the right. She just changed to the other side when I pressed the
I am making quilts, too, and I want to live with them.
I would not necessarily allow political themes around me.
Why do you think I like this? This detail? A lovely
way to insert a piece of lace into good old real patchwork.
I don't need what was on the left and right side of it. But
lets say it is contemporary.
There are about 40 more objects - many of them printed,
painted, on gaze, some were meticulously sewn - with
quilting machines, collaged, three dimensional.
Gabi Mett made a wall hanging with many cards:
Only part of it is on my photo - It was so crowded there
II could not be in the proper distance to take it all.
|Erzählt mir eure Geschichten - Gabi Mett, Germany|
Only a small detail of this rather large quilt, sewn (quilted)
all over - it looked like one black piece of fabric. However,
there could have been seams. The wall hanging is rather large
and I had again the problem of the distance.
I assume it was done on a longarm quilting machine.
|Struktur und Raum 4 - Urte Hanke, Germany|
Awe-inspiring! The note says: Cotton, painted with acrylic paint
... 178 x 181 cm. so you can imagine how large this is.
I will stop here -
The shown exhibits are textile works of art created
in excellent craftmanship -
Sparkling wine was offered - we did not drink any -
having to drive home about 50 km.
Back along the river Neckar direction Heidelberg.
A narrow valley - I took the photo through the closed car window
at a speed of 70 kmh. Well done my little iPhone!!!
We reached Heidelberg and I could catch a photo of the very
famous old bridge looking back - all through the car window at a
speed of 50 kmh.
More photos will come soon ....
