What kind of quilt would you like to share with us?
My first large blanket, made with a panel.
For whom and why did you make this quilt?
I love the online shop, where I like to stroll around and get inspired. One day my son got up extra early to look at the fabrics with me in my office. It was not long before he discovered the fabric with construction site motif! I was pregnant at the time, and immediately began quilting a new blanket, which I gave to my son for his third birthday.
When did you start and how long did it take to complete?
I finished the quilt just in time for his birthday! I did the cover by hand in just three evenings watching TV. The quilting on my old sewing machine was exhausting!
What do you like most about this quilt?
On the panel i highlighted only the most important details, so they feel good. I also like the appliqués particularly well.
What kind of materials did you use?
The panel ‘Under Construction’, the black fabric ‘On the Road Again’ (tire tracks) and 2 Unis – one in black and one in cheddar.
How can we find you on social media?
On Instagram – Feerin’ handmade.
How long have you been quivering and who or what has caused you to start?
I started 4 years ago, but made a longer break during the first 2 years after the birth of my son.
What experience in your time as a quilter has touched you the most?
I think the world of patchwork is very open, regardless of the style.
Do you have any good advice for beginners?
At an exhibition I was once so impressed by the quilts of a lady that I had to tell her that my creations look pale beside hers. Then she replied that she’s just a couple of miles of thread ahead of me. I think of this sentence every time I finish a reel 😉
