Handquilting would be a too tough job , batting is not a good option too , or perhaps some light flanellette.
The borderfabric is sturdy , a heavy cotton for upholstery or curtains , so it will end up as a tied quilt , now looking for a backing , let me see what's availabable at the marché St. Pierre.
Then the second border of Mountmellick , still without the little flowers on the beige corners , but that will be a matter of hours ,waiting for the third border , the next issue of Quiltmania should arrive within days.
The third border will be mainly appliqué too i was told.....
went to my junkshop , and found this antique cashmere shawl , i suppose the background , a sad shade of antracite gray , was once black , or maybe a dark green.
I imagine the for corners a a center for a medallion quilt , and the smaller parts worked in blocks. There are no holes in the parts i want to use ,but it's OLD ,so even if it will be a quilt one day , it has to be treated with care.....
Payed a euro for it , good deal huh??
And with the cashmere shawl this pillowcase came home and i use it, because nothing can compare the soft feel of real linen....
I went to Nantes yesterday, had a wonderful day and will show you pictures from the fair.
Have a good weekend , Will V in Paris
