The Singer FW was purring

the whole weekend to finish the frugal quilt and as the weather was as bad as can be, i was glad to stay home and sew.
The soft red Moda fabric blends in nicely with the muted colors of the triangles and comes from my stash.
The borders are more or less dicted by the amount of left over triangles.
I'm happy with the result and the size of the quilt.

I went to my Paris bee on wednesday knowing i would have a surprise, but i've been spoiled beyond my wildest dreams.
Instead of blocks, we usually make blocks for each other, i asked for doll quilts, made with orphan blocks from my fellowquilters: 
the first is from N, she made the improved puss-in-the-corner.

H made de adorable pumpkin quilt,

C the turn of the century hole-in-the-barndoor

And last but not least the cashmere- yes, cashmere- woolen logcabin, made by A

Am i spoiled or not???

Greetings from Paris, a lot warmer than last week and some sun this morning, Will V

I love your new frugal quilt. I think it turned out beautifully! I am working on a Bonnie Hunter pattern, Star Gazing, from her first book. The doll quilts are wonderful!

Ja, dat mag wel verwend genoemd worden. Wat een leuk idée ! Die cashmere stofjes zijn erg mooi. Oude overhemden ?

Bonjour! What wonderful and talented friends you have. I love the cashmere wool log cabin quilt. I've saved recycled wool (from old clothing) for nearly twenty years, and now I'm inspired to finally cut into my treasured stash! Thanks for sharing.

p.s. I forgot to mention I love your frugal quilt, especially the French General red border. It really framed the blocks nicely.`
