crazy blocks with a more intricated center, i just regret i did not take more detail pics. i think it's also a good project for a group quilt, with the crazy block nobody can't go wrong.
Then let the best quilter of the group make the center, LOL
A star of Bethlehem, i made one too , long ago.
Will show you one of these days.
Vive la France!
We had a gathering at Sylvie G's, she lives outside Paris , has a real garden and we all love to go there, and most of the time we also go to a fleamarket.
I bought buttons this time, for a snip and when back home i separated the mother-of-pearl buttons from the rest.
As you see at the pic, there were quite a lot of them.
This is my friend Gérard Lemire, a joiner who lives in the neighbourhood.
He directed me to Mr. Lopez, who brilliantly restored my found chair, you see below.
The reason i present you these two guys is that there are less and less artisans in town.
They have a hard time to find affordable workshops, and as soon as one closes, it is replaced by trendy garment brands, small restaurants,chinese take aways, you name it!
So hoorah for these unsung heroes, who do a wonderful job!
black fabric with a zest of purple for grannies aprons, no longer made.
I payed 15 euros for it, not exactly cheap, but very hard to find and never used.
Allover 2 yards i think.
I appriciated your comments, you'll hear from me soon, tomorrow i will meet some good quilting friends.
