Gerda is one of the emblematic figures of Petra Prins’ shop.
She discovered quilting over twenty years ago in a Dutch crafts magazine, Ariadne, very popular at that time.
Gerda is a devotee of hexagons, fussy cutting pieces from magnificent prints and most often assembling them using the English paper piecing method. She loves handwork and also embroiders and sometimes knits.
This patchworking method allows you to make impressive mosaics.
This small marvel that evokes the famous Middle Eastern confection was entirely constructed using the EPP (English Paper-Piecing) method. The blocks, skilfully laid out according to colour, create very interesting framing effects and the fabric choice is truly elegant.
You will find this project in Quiltmania n°113 with all patterns and explanations to make your quilt.
