I worked on finishing tops again, here they are:
the pineapple is from linen, only plaids and i'm searching for a border, hoping to find some in my neighbourhood and i want it on the cheap......
The courthouse steps is ready now, with a border of antique, never used blue fabric, intended for aprons, once bought in a yard sale, still crisp and a bit shiny.
The start for this top was a buch of fourpatches, and the setting was inspired by an antique quilt from Pennsylvania shown on Bonnie Hunter's blog.
The pink fabric is , if not antique, very old double pink , lovely with the chrome yellows and greens.
The big scrapbox is flowing over and as i'm preparing some blocks for the NEARLY INSANE quilt, i pull out bits and peaces.
Like last year i met Monique Brams again, who's still working on her hexagon quilt and showed me the progress and her well organized work box.
She's a real trooper and takes her hexies with her whereever she goes.
I tried to catch her attention, but no......
Sue from the UK, her blog is called I SEW QUILTS, myself and Linda from Australia, QUILTS IN THE BARN.
Nantes is not only quilts, but also about food, good meals and like last year, i went with Joes and Isabeau to LA CIGALE, for a delicious dinner.
And i came home with this, some fatquarters, borderfabrics, another 2 metercut of borderfabric and the two smaller pieces are antique , purchased at Joe and Mary Koval.
Happy mother's day from a sunny Paris, but chilly again...
