Happy Friday everyone!  Today’s featured quilter is Miriam.  Miriam posts about her sewing adventures at berlinquilter, and I hope you enjoy getting to know her better!

1. When did you begin quilting?

I began quilting about a year ago.

 30´s Double Wedding Ring Quilt Made with Aneelas Pickledish Quiltalong

2. Why do you quilt?

I see quilting as an art, like painting, but because I can´t paint, i make my artwork with the wonderful fabrics which are out there.

3. What is your favorite quilting tip?

I have no special quilting tip, but as I am a fast sewer, I love chain piecing!

 Poem Quilt

4. What was your inspiration for your Quilt Festival quilt?

My inspiration for the poem quilt was my love for poems, words and little sayings in all kind of arts. What also inspired me was my very personal desire for the real love which I am sure is out there for everybody!

5. Do you sew other things?

I am a fashion designer with a little shop in Berlin, Germany. I sew apparel everyday. I can´t imagine my life without sewing and creating.


Thanks for sharing Miriam!  I love your poem quilt – the colors are fantastic, as is the poem itself!
