Quiltshow Part 2

On to the next batch from the Quiltshow in Lüneburg!

These next few quilts are based on work by an Austrian architect and artist named Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser (born as Friedrich Stowasser). Go ahead and google-translate his artistic name, just for the fun of it!

 These were really 3-dimensional quilts, with opening window shutters, puffy plants, etc.

This tree is the reason why you don't need to throw out any fabric, ever. Not even the tiniest pieces. You just chuck them onto background fabric and sew allover it. If you use different green pieces, you get a tree. How cool is that???

 Detail of the door.

 Very intensive and detailed quilting. It really made the coloured shapes pop out of the quilt.

 I liked the arrangements of the quilt. They weren't in close rows like I'm used to. There was lots of space to step back and get the 'big picture', but also get up close to see the details. 

So simple, yet so nice!

The middle quilt is the Storm at Sea pattern. It always amazes me how variable this pattern is. Never made it yet. It's also on the to-do list. 

One more batch to come! I'm also busy quilting, yay!
