A lot of stitches and so many more to come

The first picture is a detail of a page from the book for the exhibition Cyber Fyber
The second picture is my dream a quilt I am working on
When I started my blog 3 years ago, I came accros an artist, Martha Green she makes wonderful Crazy quilts and she has her own way of making these quilts.
I wanted to make a quilt like that,

Have a wonderful time in France! I just had to stop by and comment on the colors in the second quilt, this may sound off the wall, but they remind me of Ancient Incan art!

What a lovely quilt. I like it when the use of a limited number of colors pulls a crazy quilt together.

I enjoyed reading this article you sent us to...the difference between "sane quilters and crazy quilters"...loved it.
I have made one crazy quilt, no two, and they were great fun. Yours inspire me to do more! I like all the work you show here.

Emmy je maakt echt prachtige dingen. Vooral die quilt onderin vind ik mooi. Die kleurencombinatie is goed en het naaldwerk nog mooier :-). Ik vraag me altijd af hoe je het toch allemaal zo snel voor elkaar krijgt. Het kost mij uren om überhaupt iets met de hand te naaien. Ik doe het vooral omdat ik het leuk vind om te doen, maar snel gaat het bij mij niet. Ook vind ik de variatie in je steekjes mooi. Ik heb een aantal boeken met voorbeeldsteken, maar ik vind het vaak lastig om te bepalen welke mooi zijn op welk moment. Al doende leert men denk ik. Jij heb je deze techniek in elk geval al goed meester gemaakt.
