“For this pendant I used a convergence pattern inspired by a quilting template,” says Switzerland’s Sandra Trachsel. The colors buzz against each other as the stripes alternately grow thinner and fatter.
What draws you further in are the chunky areas of color outside the center square. There’s much to deconstruct and reassemble as you study how the pattern works. Sandra must have been a quilter in another life.
Sandra’s work is always impeccable. congrats Sandra!
Cynthia – she’s from Switzerland, btw…. 😉

What beautiful, precise work Sandra does! I’m particularly smitten with her bargello designs and others based on quilt patterns. Her pieces look flawless. Thanks for sharing.

Such a lovely and deceptively simple design! Beautiful.
Annie Pennington ,
Lovely! Here’s a link to quilter Ricky Tims, who wrote the book on Convergence quilts. You can definitely spot the inspiration in Sandra’s pieces! https://www.rickytims.com/quiltgallery/harmonic-convergence-quilts
Annie, this link doesn’ t work. I would love to learn how to do this. Are there any tutorials or classes to take to learn how to do this?
Impeccable is indeed the word.
Sandra Trachsel ,
Thank you for featuring my work here and thanks for the kind comments.
I added the name of the quilter, Ricky Tims, to the description of the pictures on flickr.
Color play at its best! Love Sandra’s work.
