Birgit Schueller intentionally put holes in her quilt, Hole Cloth. Find out why and discover other different design elements she used to create her quilt.

Hole Cloth was on display at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2018 as part of the Abstract Small Exhibit.
It might be a little bit difficult to tell, but the holes are the black areas (the curtain shows through) on the quilt. You can see it more easily in the detail photo.

These are more cutouts than holes. Love this idea - like a lace, but close up.

What a beautiful quilt. Original and the quilting is spectacular.

Absolutely love this, my kind of quilt, especially the holes, which I have done a few times in my own work. Love being able to see through the quilt. Quilting is amazing too, and love the thread colour changes. In fact the whole quilt is fascinating.

The photos of this unique and wonderful quilt leave me wondering how the edges of the holes were finished.

Very uniquely creative with the holes in the quilt and the quilting reflecting the pieced parts of the quilt. Also like the color changes of the quilting thread. WOW!

What an interesting idea. It works so well with her other design elements, including the amazing quilting.

Well done, but I hope this is a fad that does not catch on!
