The CREUSE convention

So i'm back from a wonderful weekend in the Creuse, central France. Friday wweather was realy bad: storm and rain all over the days. We had food and wine for the whole stay, so we started sewing straight on, and we did it the BONNIE HUNTER way.

Some of us, we were six, are very experienced with machine piecing, others less, but at the end
we had 180 blocks, and, believe me, there was also time over for eating, drinking, and LOL!

I think that Bonnie's blocks are great for such a gathering, progress was quick and we all went home with nearly enough blocks for a quilt.

Of course we also did some sight seeing, more tomorrow!

Reactions from all over the world and lovely comments come onto my blog: be sure i value your attentions and i'm very happy to share my love for quilts with you! Happy quilting ladies!

Oh, the quilt blocks look so wonderful, Will, and it seems you all had a great time, too. And looking at your earlier posts, I really love the crumb diamond blocks, too. Thanks to Tonya for pointing us your way!

Those blocks look fabulous together! The different sized parts make them look really fascinating. All that sewing and a good time too!

I was at this week-end in CREUSE. The beautiful house of Michele was like a plant in the "sentier" a famous place in Paris.
We were so busy but the result is here : we finished last week-end six quilts.
