A fresh wind

Have a look at those gorgeous tiles: an entire wall in the entry of a Paris building from the turn of the century.
Normally you can not enter a building without knowing the doorcode.
Doorcodes are a disaster for me, i'm soooo curious, but i do agree, for safety it's necessary.
As the postman just came out, i slipped inside and took these pics.
The hall was not large enough to take the whole wall, but i'm happy to show you these details.
Jugendstil period i suppose.

A junkshop find from heaven knows where, the background is velvet, punchneedled, bold colors.
Folk art from eastern Europe?
I payed 1 euro 50 for it, which is quite a good deal i think!

Just a litle bunch of nine patches, but not a clear destination.
Always good to have at hand on a rainy winterday.
I had a subscription for swatches at Vintage and Vogue for quite a long time, and i used some of those to make them.

I made this top last week:
the blocks were made a few months ago, with dutch fabric from Den Haan en Wagenmakers.
The big triangles a junkshop find, kind of chinoiserie.
The sashings were destinated for the crumb diamonds i showed a while a go, but his seems a far more better use to me.
I'm happy with the blended effect, inspired by a quilt from the American Museum in Bath, UK.
I was happy to spend a moment with you, but go back to the clutterfight right now for an hour or two.

A little bird told me that you are a sucker for courtyards/entries. I am too. I love seeing what lies behind those huge doors. Unfortunately these days sneak peeks are getting few and far between.

The quilt top is beautiful.

Prachtig, de tegeltableaus.
Heb je op wacht gestaan tot je er in kon.
En je quilt is ook een beauty.Zou het nooit kunnen bedenken om die stoffen te combineren maar het is super mooi.
