I got my match for my first mini quilt swap last week. My partner seems very open-minded towards what I make for her. I think we have a similar “style” we like, even though she listed some designers that aren’t my favourite.
My idea at core is to make a modern crest. Crests are something I associate with castles, knights, fairy tales; all of which are a part of Germany’s past. I love the thought of a little nod to where the quilt was made, as it’s headed abroad once it’s done (I hope that doesn’t give away too much).
I think solids work best for this idea (but then I usually think solids work best…) and I wanted them to be a bit fairy tale-y. So there’s a mint and a light pink.
I hope the design works for my partner (I will ask around on instagram), so that I can start figuring out how to piece this. Some basic math gave me 2” HSTs and Flying Geese, so I’m thinking paper piecing might be the way to go. If one of you has a tip to share about how to approach this, please share with me!
