IMQE 2017 Finding North

When I was assigned my partner, I had no idea the connection would be more than just a partner in quilting. From my first, "Hello from Germany!" email, before we even started on ideas for our quilt, we were getting to know one another as a fellow quilter, as a person from another country and lifestyle. As Silvia stated: We are very similar quilters but the difference is “the salt in the soup”!

 

We decided to use the same collection of batik fabrics so our quilts would complement each other. However, our quilting styles would be "the salt in the soup" that makes each one special.  I have combined a traditional star block with an untraditional paper pieced star, along with flying geese and hand quilting and named it "Finding North". Finding our way to friendship, understanding, and sharing in our love of quilting.
