share it with friends, is such a blessing,
and there's nothing like some new (long-term) projects
to focus your mind on the bright side of life...
First of all, look at my blog header.
You might remember I saw that beauty in a French quiltshop in Paris
and I shared a picture with you...
Well, Jeri loves it, too!
So she kindly proposed to design the pattern, calculate the yardage,
and help me find the right solids color palette. Isn't that sweet, indeed ?
Sharon will be joining us, as well (after her big moving).
Some weeks ago, I posted a comment to Rae Ann ,
about her lovely 30's repro fabrics quilts...
She proposed to share a lovely pieced/applique pattern with me,
(and some of those 30's repro fabrics, that I love)
Ain't I lucky ?
And here's the BIG fellow that will keep me busy
for the coming year (s ?)
Actually, it's the reproduction of an Antique Quilt
that Guute recently adapted with EQ6.
Originally, she intended to share her pattern on her blog,
but the demands of enthusiastic quilter friends were so numerous (more than 100!)
that she decided to create a Yahoo Group (see the logo on my sidebar).
You're all welcome to join the fun!
I'll be starting handpiecing mine by end of July, when returning from vacations.
This will give me time to think about my colors scheme,
and collect some repro fabrics...
"Those good old hexies" are another long-term,
handpiecing project that I love.
I've been part of The Great Heaxagon Quilt Along for some months.
This is a fantastic hexies lovers blog, created by sweet Robyn
If you love hexies and got some spare minutes,
don't miss a visit, it's full of inspiration!
I'm using bright K.Fasset fabrics, on a black background,
and will bring my tin box with me on vacations...
Aaah, my sweet little blue fella's!
This lovely quilt was designed by the talented Nanette, from Freda's Hive
(pattern available on her Etsy shop, see her sidebar).
Mine is just about being a flimsy, and I love it.
You'll soon be seeing it ;>)
