I was born in Germany, Black forest, and grew up with my three siblings. We were a funny “gang” and my grandma sewed a lot of clothes for us children. I always set down next to her old PFAFF and felt so comfortably. She once told me: When you are tall enough to get your feet down to the pedal, I’ll teach you sewing too. Maybe this was one of the best things anyone could give to me. So I started sewing at the age of six and I hope I mustn’t end before I’ll die :-). Of course as a German girl I’ve never heard about quilting. I just sewed my own clothes, loved to have unique things to wear. When I had to decide which profession or study to choose it had to be something creative and I decided for Interior Design. But more and more I was drawn to all the students in the room next to me acting with needles and thread and so I ended up as a student of Textile Design. I became mother of three wonderful children who fill my life with their laughter, adventures and individuality. In my mid age it happened that I stumbled in a bookstore about a wonderful pictured quilting book and was hooked at once. I had to try it my own and got hopelessly addicted to patchwork. Of course there are always a lot of projects I’m working on simultaneously - as every quilter does.. I needed fabrics, lots and lots of different fabrics to dive in. And so it came that I could not longer keep me back to start my own little online shop with quilting fabrics (and this means I can take pieces of fabrics at any time right here in my house - what a feeling) .

It’s like a law: as a Textile Designer I had sooner or later to create my own line of fabrics. And so I did - it led to my roots of Interior Design: When developing a fabric or even a design for a quilt the entire impression of a room comes to my mind. I see the light, the furnitures, the color concept, the style and my quilt is a natural element of this scene, fitting in harmoniously. I like clarity in a room, an environment of simplicity where you are surrounded by only the things you really need and love, where you can relax, find your inner peace and balance. So my quilts are kind of this reduced, pure and clear style. They show as much color to give your eye a juicy catcher and as less patterns to let it rest there for a while.
The one thing every quilter needs all the time? Blenders! Prints that read like a solid, but have the extra vibrancy of a texture in it. You can never have enough and the wider the color range, the better. Spotted comes with a retro texture, which we know from posters from the 50â€™s: Little subtle spots in the printed surface. With its bright hues the color palette serves especially the modern quilter excellently. Spotted is an essential collection and with all the standard precuts you have the perfect product to provide for a quilterâ€™s stash with a great color box!

A beautiful day on the beach... Azure skies, the warmth of the sun, a light wind in your hair and the gorgeous hues of blue offered by the sea. Like its name, Breeze brings all of these delights together in a fresh, youthful fabric line with a light, airy blue as its predominant color. Splashes of pale pink add a pretty, feminine feel and white and navy blue bring depth through different hues to Zen Chicâ€™s newest fabric line. The motifs of the fabric patterns offer large scale prints as with the use of multi-colored circles. These can be used in the borders of a quilt, the backside of a quilt or perhaps with a project like a fun and beautiful bag. The line also uses medium scale geometrics like stripes and sashiko stitching motifs. Small scale motifs make wonderful blenders that go very well with other fabric collections as well.
