Came home frustrated if not to say angry, and all of a sudden remembered i baught this book not so long ago:
the choise was easy peasy, i've cut a sheat of paper the right size, folded,designed and in less than 5 minutes i had my template.
I will think twice from now on before running to a shop!
After all, that's what quilters did a hundred years ago, right?
Btw, Paris is becoming a DESERT for quilting, the interresting shops are or in suburbs or in the country side.
So back to oldfashioned quiltmaking, the way i learned in the early seventies.
These blocks deserve better than staying in a plastic bag. I made them with my old quilting friends, all i have to do is choose the background fabric.
How about poison green?
There is just one row missing, so the balance is not nice.
As seam allowances are comfortable, i will change the setting in a straight furrow.
That will not take me ages to do.
Handsewn all over, i think that quilting is a better option than tying,any experiences with that?
All the fabrics seem in very goos condition, no browns.
I'm grateful for your kind comments on the hexies, and yes, i will change the center and save the second for a medallion quilt!
Have you been on Betsey Telford's website lately?
She sells antique quilts, and going through her collection is like turning the pages of a beautiful quiltbook.
Go and see and enjoy!
you all have a nice weekend, a mountain of ironing is waiting for me!
