Paris for 5 days in the Elsass i took a suburb train and joined my quilting buddies for the first bee after the summer break. A little surprise: wall paintings at gare du Nord. Gare du Nord is an area with an important Indian community and i suppose the paintings had something to do with that. It's not my cup of tea, but the colors are vibrant, and nothing was tagged by stupid jerks yet.
So arriving at the bee at Monique's, i found the serial knitter quilter busy with her japanese box filled with a project she's working on for years now LOL. She said that if i put her head on the blog, she'll kill me.....
next to Sylvie with her beautiful repro quilt, finished or close to and pulling out the basting threads
Progress on my swirls, i made the corrections where necessary, finishing the top is easy peasy now....
And also the Mountmellick is coming to an end. 4 Little star blocks to make and i would like to hear what you think about the outer border.
It's a rather dramatic pillar print from a Moda collection of Barbara Brackman, the nineties if i remember well. That means that ALL the fabrics, exept the appliquéd flowers and the background of the fourth border as well as the background for the stars, came out of the scrapboxes and the boxes-under-the-bed.
As i said, i'll be in the fast train for Strasburg tomorrow morning, and i will meet Lori de Jarnatt who comes with her DD from the US.Joes, Ellen and Isabeau will pick me up in SMM. I count my blessing and i'm grateful, take care!
PS: I couldn't leave without mentioning the fabulous meal Monique put on the table, a curry, clairette de Die, cheese and a dessert straight from heaven.... so dinner was a cup of tea and an apple!
