[BQF] mini quilt entry: The Modern Crest

The Modern Crest | veni vidi vicky

Entry to the Mini Quilt Category of the Blogger’s Quilt Festival Spring 2015.

The working titel for this mini quilt was ‘Texas meets Germany’. I sewed it up for a awap partner who resides in Houston. The mini quilt turned out to be a fusion of medieval medallions and crests (think German castles) and a Texas inspired colour palette.

I wanted for the binding to add to the theme and after nixing the idea of tassels I made a ton of mini pom-poms on a whim and added them to the finished binding.

This quilt it by far my favourite finish of the past 6 months, and I’m still a little sad I had to part from it. So I’m glad I get an excuse to show it off again by entering it into the Blogger’s Quilt Festival of Spring 2015 ;-) Go check out all the other beautiful entries in the various categories and vote for your favs!

    Had to pop through and say how much I love this – from the pattern to the irregular shape to the pom-poms – the whole piece just sings! Well done and best of luck in the Festival!

    Loving the addition of the pompoms to this mini! It’s so unexpected, and fun! I can understand why it was hard to part with — it’s really lovely!
