Quilt National 11 -- inside out

How interesting that two quilts in QN '15, taking almost the identical approach, were both from
German-speaking Europe.

Beatrice Lanter, hinten VII, orange (detail below)

Not sure this technique is as mind-boggling as it was twenty years ago, but still an interesting twist on the traditional pieced quilt.  Both artists are members of the obsessive-compulsive school of quiltmaking, with their individual pieces less than an inch across, and you have to admire the concentration it took to complete these rather large quilts.

I'll be a party-pooper and say that I might like to see what the other side of these quilts look like.  Also I'm sorry I didn't illegally peek at the back to see how these were quilted.


  1. Dear Kathy, I really enjoy reading all about the Quilt National Quilts. Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one enjoying the texture on the back of quilts. I REALLY am intrigued by the back of my hexagon project. I'd really hate to cover it up.
