QUILTERS: from Nantes and Amsterdam

 Renée from Nantes, Joes and Elsbeth Wallenburg from Amsterdam came to Paris for the craftshow, and we've spend the whole saturday at my home.
We had lunch , and after that i opened boxes, bags , more boxes and bags to show them quilts, finished or not, and piles and piles of tops , blocks , stuff....
Thereafter we went to the marché St. Pierre and i was happy to guide them and they found some true treasures and gems.
I was lazy for making pics, -i was feeding them and showed them my treasures LOL- but if you go to Elsbeth's blog, you will see some older work...

This could become the layout for the blocks i showed in my last post.
This Way? Small sashings? And if yes, any idea for the color?

Something very different ; this is the wall of a very derelict building in my street.
The wall art makes it at least intriguing: it changes often and i will be back with pics of the frequent changes/.changes,it'a protected areawith big problemsin the sub-soil, so it may take ages before something happens ,and it might collaps too

It sounds like a fun day with friends! Love the blocks and I think a small sashing of red would look lovely.

Ik vind je quilts héél erg mooi Will. Had ze al gezien bij Elsbeth maar hoe meer foto's hoe liever wij dat hebben. Jij kan als geen ander mooie stofjes combineren. Gr Liliane

It is always nice to have friends drop by for a spell. I would love to see more of the fun you had but I can't find Elsbeth's blog. Could you please, point me in the right direction. Thanks.
The stars are beautiful and yes, I would add sashings, very small, beige or cream with pinky cornerblocks ... maybe. Thanks for sharing.

The blocks are beautiful and I agree with the others that a thin sashing would set the blocks off.

Het is zo leuk om al jouw quilts te zien, nu bij Elsbeth op haar blog, maar hopelijk toch ook nog eens in het 'echie'...

Your star blocks are so pretty. They will look great no matter how you put them together. I'll look forward to seeing what you decide to do with them!

Looks like so much breathtaking fun. What about a small, pale sashing?

Salut Will, Tu trouves encore des tissus intéressants à Montmartre, toi ?
La rue de Steinkerke n'est plus qu'une gigantesque boutique à touristes, quel dommage !
