more paper piecing

Some time ago I have seen the “Et Dömsche” block by Dorthe from lalala patchwork quilting & more and I knew exactly for whom I wanted to make it! The “Et Dömsche” is a nickname for the cathedral in Cologne/Germany.

I thought directly of my sister-in-law and her husband, they live near Cologne and are big fans of the city.  I decided to make 2 placemats using the block pattern.

I have used colorful fabrics designed by Alison Glass from here 2016 collection.

As an extra to the block I have added the German name for Cologne : Köln. The letter patterns are by Sheryl from Temecula Quilt Company – Little Farmer, all posts labeled Little Letters. All letter designs are free and have a nice tutorial. Thanks for sharing!

My sister-in-law was really exited when she received the placemats as it was a total surprise to her. (But actually it was a postponed Christmas present.)

Happy quilting,
