I GÅR - I DAG - I MORGEN

Mit værk til I går- i dag - i morgen til jubilæumskonkurrancen i Dansk Patchworkforening 2011 lever sit eget lille liv. Det startede med at det blev belønnet som "runner up" af dommerpanelet.

Efterfølgende blev det udtaget til at være med i Canada, hvor Dansk Patchworkforening var inviteret til at udstille i forbindelse med Ailsa Craig Community Festival som udstillede 110-125 danske quilts mm.

Så var det med til Nordisk Quiltetræf i Ålborg

Nu skal den så til Le Jardin du Cure i Sydfrankrig. Det er 3. gang der afholdes udstilling der. Det er et internationelt kursussted og netop i år er Dansk Patchworkforening inviteret til at udstille 15 danske quilts.- Jeg er godtnok med på et afbud, men alligevel..... 🙃

 

Yesterday – to day – tomorrow.

My name is Lisbeth Svenstrup. I have always been creative, but mostly used my creativity together with children. This is the first time ever I have participated in a competition. I am an absolute autodidact patchworker.

It started in 2005, when we moved from Denmark to Hungary. I had to give up my job inDenmarkand follow my husband. Therefore I started to learn my self patchwork from books I had bought. 2 years later I discovered the Danish Patchwork organization, joined them and thereby got there magazine. 

The same second I saw the competition theme in our magazine, I knew how I would make it – That was if  I were to participate! My concern was; if I had the skills after just practice by my self?

Then the next magazine came and I read an article from one of the judges appealing to everybody to give it at try. And in a moment of bravery I signed up. A few days later I received the material, and I started to search on the internet fore events in each year from 1986 to 2016. That was so much fun!!

In the plaid each color shows a type of event. The events are divided in these categories:

  • Culture/sport
  • Disasters/war
  • Economy
  • Everyday life
  • Environment/society
  • Predictions/warnings
  • Politics/ personalities
  • The royal Danish family
  • Treaties
  • Transport/communication
  • Weather and natural phenomena
  • World space

Sewing and embroidering of the plaid was also fun. But then came deadline, and I had to decide if I were to bail out or participate??? But by then I found a Hungarian patchwork group.  They encouraged me. 

The doors patchwork can open are amazing. My plaid was rewarded as an upcoming, I have started to work for the Danish patchwork organizations magazine and my plaid is selected for this trip toCanada. I am so proud and grateful. Thank you so much!

Hejsa. Jeg har ingen butik. Billedet er fra en butik i Australien. Jeg har beskrevet det i Dansk Patchworkforenings medlemsblad, Kludemagasinet.
