        Such a nice variety!. Your birds on a wire quilt made me smile. I had that pattern saved for some fabric I have. I think I'll go see if it will work.

        Thanks for sharing!

                A beautiful representation of your skills and creativity. Your period clothing is incredible.

                      Can you tell us the story about your costumes, why you make them?

                        I'm happy you like the stuff I have sewn in the last years. There is so much more but only in the traditional way, paper, two big folders full of photos.

                        Of course I can tell you the story behind and it's easy for you to follow. Look at my avatar, I introduce you to my great grandparents Kurt and Marie Brandenburg.
                        This photo is the root of all my interests in costume making. I loved the photo, it was taken around 1895, and when I was a child I always thought I want to have a dress like this. It needed a couple of years before I started to make a dream come true. In 2002 bought my first corset and started sewing, first 1890 and 1895. Than we had a weekend in a Western Town "Pullman City" in the Harz and I decided to sew some dresses from the 1860. So now I have around 20 ore more dresses, teagowns, reception- evening and/or ballgowns. All with matching hats or flowers/bows for to dress the hairstyle, bags, fans, gloves etc. all what you need to build up an authentic look from the time. We are a German wide group and organize meeting our self. Unfortunately because of things in life change actually it's only once a year or all two years. That's a mess because once it was three times a year or so. This is the reason I have not sewn a dress in the last five or six years because I have enough on hand. Still have nice authentic fabric around to start. This year we wanted to have a meeting in Czechia with a reception, dance, walking in the park etc. but because of Corona ......... ☹ hopefully we can met next year.

                            Welcome to the Forum, Peggy! Thanks for sharing your wonderful work. I think my favorite of your quilts is the ABC, and I'm in love with that cow!! Did you make that from a pattern?
