This amazing quilt was made by a young artist from Iceland named Siggi Eggertsson!
“For my graduation project in The Iceland Academy of the Arts I made a quilt,” she writes, “based on my childhood memories. The size of it is 2×2.5 meters, and it’s made out of 10.000 pieces.”

Her work features “oversized women, with curves, who transmit a special positive energy,” says Chime. “Beautiful and happy with their own bodies.”
After July, Chime’s work can be seen at The Hackney Wicked Art Festival.

I recently completed a BTEC certification in Pattern Cutting Level II. I first became interested in pattern cutting during my work placement here at Anna Scholz. It has been a long journey and I’m still a long way from being as talented as our in-house pattern cutter, Stefanie; but I have learned a lot!
Thought I’d share a few photos of me modelling my final project. Our assignment was to design a garment, draft a full production pattern and sew the garment. I made a little party dress with an intersecting bodice dart (pretty fancy stuff, eh?) and side pleats that match up at the side seam.
Note of interest: the side pleats on my dress are directly inspired by one of Anna’s dresses in the upcoming Autumn-Winter 2010 collection! Anna’s crepe jersey dress with side pleats is definitely something to look forward to– we’re all in love with it here at the studio.
My design?…Well, I don’t think it will burning up any runways anytime soon. But I did enjoy making it.
