Lovely Quilts by Carmen Bickle

Portrait of Carmen Bickle

Hello, I am Carmen.

In my main occupation, I held the position of CEO in various software companies. To find balance in my professional responsibilities, I devote myself to various creative hobbies such as sewing, patchwork, painting, and DIY projects.

Patchwork holds a special place in my heart, and my inspiration for it came from my mother, who admired the intricate patchwork quilts in American films. As a token of appreciation for my mother, I tried my hand at patchwork, and ever since, I have been enthralled by this craft. Essentially, I am a self-taught enthusiast, but to further refine my skills in this art, I regularly attend classes offered by the Patchwork Guild and international workshops.

Since May 2023 I am a certified course instructor of the Patchwork Guild Germany.
