Shall i start with the progress on quilts and the start of Mountmellick? It's Di Ford's stunning mistery quilt, she made for QUILTMANIA.
Kits are available and i see beautiful samples on blogs , but i do it my own way with stuff from the boxes.
Appliquéinge is not easy for me and it's quite a challenge, but while working , i feel more and more at ease.
The chintz flowers came out of the Dutch stuff box , and seem bigger then the ones on the print for the kit.
The leaves beside the corner hexagons must still be appliquéd , but that's easy peasy compared to the start.
I love the blue border , and on the second pic you see the preparation for the second border , which is ready and sewn on while i'm writing.
The six pointed hexagon blocks are a gift from my quilting buddies in Paris and i will go on making more blocks in order to get a top at the end.
I saw the block on a Pinterest pic and fell in love wth it immediately.
Triangles will separate the blocks , perhaps off white.
We had an early spring this year in France , and i spend a few days at the seaside with DD and the little sweetie, who is taller as i am now , and hates to be pictured all in once.....
On very sunny and warm day i walked from St. Pair to Carolles , to join Vauban's stone cabin , but the weather wasn't clear enough to see Mont St. Michel unfortunately , and the quiet roads and hidden beaches , the greenery and tiny flowers were a feast for the eye.
I have a brand new computer , Windows 8 , and i don't feel very at ease with it now , but i must admit there is a huge difference with the seven years old Dell, and at least i can upload photo's , learn something new every day...
Now looking for a Word initiation....
Take care you all and greetings from Will V in Paris
