Miniature quilt Team 123. My partner is from Canada and I live in Texas. Carole & I discovered many things in common. The one thing we did not share was that she is a professional quilter while I am not. Oh mercy she is a professional!! No pressure, right?
Well, I found Carol to be a delight. We both live in small towns that have a river and a special bridge. Her town has Inuksuk which are rocks stacked originally by the Aboriginal people, while our town has the International Rock Stacking competition.
We choose “Happy” as our theme. I wanted to design the project myself, but in the end I used a pattern by Kathryn Patterson called “The House That Kaffe Built” published in the 1997 McCalls. This smaller paperpieced. version was published by McCallsQuilting.com in 2011.
It just seemed perfect for my partner. It is houses made with Kaffe Fassett fabric, a designer I knew my partner liked. I had just completed a project with his fabrics and loved the colors in his designs. Plus she and her husband have built a new home and moved into it in 2017. Now I am sure I choose the right project for my partner even though it is not my original design
