|Gabriele Bach: Krokus - Liebe zum Fruehlingsgarten|
Love is a very difficult theme and I spent a lot of time thinking about it. But when I saw my little garden in the sunshine, it was clear for me, what I wanted to show in my quilt. I love my garden, especially in the early spring when it is full of crocuses and snowdrops. The crocus is a wild sort and they become every year more.
For my quilt I had the idea to show the flower with a wide border. I admire often the hand embroidery in other quilts and this time I wanted to use seed stitch to present the wealth of crocus blossoms in my garden. I have self- dyed embroidery yarn, which waits to be used.
Every year again I admire the crocuses in my garden and I am very happy that I made at least a quilt with the crocuses.
I used mostly self-dyed cotton and embroidery yarn, pieced and quilted with the machine and made the embroidery by hand.
