A few weeks ago, Lynne from Lily's Quilts whose day is longer than 24hrs, started a group for British Quilters over on flickr. We exchange pics, discuss stuff and generally get to know each other a bit...............being involved in this led me to start my Mystery Quilt which is keeping me on my toes whilst I have no "real" classes...............then Lynne came up with the Brit Quilt Swap! We have been spending time making mosaics to sort of show our dislikes and our preferences....and then last weekend we were allocated our secret swap partner. We have to keep it a secret and try to find out what they might like from their flickR photostream and their blogs...........I haven't got a huge amount of info from my stalking but think my partner likes stars.........so I couldn't stop thinking about Mariner's Compass - not a star as such but some years ago I did a workshop and made a wallhanging with a compass and flying geese which I quite like and I rather fancied pushing myself a wee bit and drafting my own. My first thought was to make it asymmetrical but then I literally had a mini eureka moment and sketched out this -
I haven't decided on colour or fabrics yet, just playing around with different brights - I love the way using two extreme values on each segment gives such a 3-D feel.
So, partner - am I anywhere close?
