Jutta and Johann have been working together for over two years setting up the platform for their new independent and international online quilt magazine Quilt around the World (www.quilt-around-the-world.com). Johann concentrates mainly on the technical issues, but is very involved in the design process of every project Jutta tackles for Quilt around the World.
Johann is Austrian and started quilting in 2010. In his spare time, he loves doing dangerous things: mountain climbing, skiing, hiking through the wilderness and motorcycling.
Jutta is Bavarian and started quilting in 1996. When she isnât quilting, she enjoys reading, going to the movies, swimming, travelling, or trying to keep up with Johann on almost vertical hiking trails or ski slopes in the Alps.
For some years, fabric manufacturers have offered pre-cut fabric strips, also known as Jelly Rolls.
One of these tempting rolls fell into our hands last time we went fabric hunting. Precut fabric strips can be used
for many patterns, e. g. Log Cabins, Rail Fence blocks or for
making a Lasagna quilt which has become very popular in Europe recently. Here, we want to present an interesting alternative use of Jelly Rolls: An abstract geometric "ColourPlay" design for a triptych wallhanging solely made
with precut fabric strips and inspired by the famous Bauhaus artists and architects.
