IMQE 2017 - Team 345 - From me to you

Be part of an exhibition an meet somebody with the hobby patchwork. That was my goal! My partner and I quickly realized that we have a lot in common. After sharing pictures of our patchwork quilts we agreed to buy the same fat quarter package with beautiful batik fabric in the colors we love with the possibility to use more fabric. We also decided not to specify any design or block pattern.

But our friendship couldn't have been better! We participate in the life of the new friend and write what we are doing, send pictures and postcards. An absolutely great unique friendship!

Design: In the time of getting to know each other I wrote a poem "What I would like to do with you". The lines of the poem are framed by different block designs. "I wanna send you some stars" - the friendship star (six inch finished size) sewed from a picture from Judy Martin. "Sitting in a sea of roses" - that's what the big flower bowl stands for. Flowers cut out of the fabric flower print. Trapunto behind the big pink flower in the bowl and the pink dotted heart. So that the text of the poem merges with the background, I decided for a light background with additional fabrics for a scappy look.

Batting: Thermolam

Quilting: Stitch in the ditch or nearby the ditch with color matching yarn, free-motion around the flowers.
