I had no troubles with putting the blocks and borders together and love the soft touch of the blocks.
The very dark brown background is - i think- a mix of linnen and wool but nothing was mentioned about the composition.
There is a big leftover for a skirt or a pair of pants, so the final spending is still 5 euro's.
Not to bad i think.
I've started with the cutting of the flying geese, from the same fabrics, and can now close the lids of both the boxes.The fabrics are too heavy and rustic for a traditional quilting and thin crochet yarn seems a better option.
She showed the boxes from her latest book and it was the most interresting part of the show.
Hardly quilts, some in the commercial stands, ,but i was not inspired .
I had to go there for a special reason, but spending 12 euros entry fee ?
I won't go there next year and i long for the februaryshow.
Strollers, suitcases, and people schlepping schleppers make it even to a dangerous experience.....
COSABETH PARRIAUD will expose her wall art at Galerie ARTE VIVA in Gent, Belgium,
