Introduction During the last a few months, I have preferred to paint, but quilting has become one of my passions, and I'm sure I will come back to it. In Germany, we don't have a quilting tradition. This is why I start in this art like a kid. My craft was painting, then embroidery my grandma taught me. After 30 years of neglecting it, I took it up a few years ago, and in Dec 2008, I started quilting. All my work is hand sewn and quilted because I like the quiet atmosphere of hand work. -- I'll try to answer your comments in the blog. -- Bio: Born from a family with Baltic German, Estonian, and Russian roots. Studied Arts and Education. My English may not be perfect, and I love to be corrected -- and to learn.
