on work hidden for long times in boxes and plastic bags: i finally finished the little baskets, and i know i wouldn't without the help of my friends. This felt like a never ending story, but it was on my list of ufo's for this year.
I like the finish of the two borders and evry fabric i used came from stash.
I preferred the darker border, but i just had not enough of it.
The churn dash top is a different story: sixteen of the blocks and antique turn of the century, and formed with the sashing a poorly sewn top . The browns of the sashing, a lovely fabric, was so week i could easily tear it . So no way to re-use it. Unsewing the blocks was a hell of a job because of the sewing thread the maker used. I've spend long long hours on it.
Then i made some new blocks of matching repro fabric and joined them all with a more sophisticated sashings.
This top is not me at all. It's something between Gee'sBend and Gwen Marston, made from a paperbag filled with strips , It still has to be framed, but i think it will be nice when quilted. I just can't recognize myself in this top.....
It mesures only 7 by 9 cm, and it was difficult to find someone who could frame such a small painting.
I'm over the moon and told him i want a REMBRANDT for next year....
Take care you all fellowquilters, spring has still not sprung here, and cold is coming back.
I saw i had 200 followers since last week, i can't believe it.
Thank you for your interest in my quilts , i'm so happy to share and follow you too,
