The story behind is a little special: as i worked for long years in a Paris' quiltshop, i had the opportunity, while staying at Houston Quiltfestival, to go to Market and assist my boss when she chose the new fabric collections.
Then David Peha asked me to make a quilt for the next market with Roberta Hortons fabric collections.
I really enjoyed this and was amazed he trusted me to that point, allthough he had never seen a single quilt of mine!
I could chose whatever i wanted and this came out.
Roberta Horton then chose the quilt for her book SCRAP QUILTS, the art of making do, and thereafter AQS decided to make gift wrap paper with it.
It was a lovely adventure for me and a nice souvenir from Quilt Festivan 1995.
You might think this is the block, but no, only the quarter part of it is!
RH called it a lend and borrow.
It was a very poor one filled with a sad kind of junk.
Not a single piece of interresting kind of fabric or some buttons,
But all of a sudden i saw this:
an ARABIA RUSKA fire proof porcelain casserole.
I payed 3 euros for it, a misery.
The thing is that when i came to Paris in 1970, a had a nearly complete service of this, but you can imagine that after all those years...........
And even last week i broke a little plate among the leftovers, so i'm more than happy.
this week i will make only hand piecing, no sewing machine on my table.
Weather is grey and sad here, and will stay so for the rest of the week.
Happy quilting ladies, and welcome to my new followers,
Will V in Paris
