Inspiration Series #2

My first Inspiration post featured improv quilts with free cut pieces. In contrast this one is all about geometry and clean lines, another style that I love in the Modern Quilting movement.Mon premier article Inspiration présentait des quilts improvisés avec des pièces coupées librement. A l’opposé, dans celui-ci il s’agit de géométrie et de lignes nettes, un autre style que j’apprécie dans le courant Modern Quilting. *** I started following Gosia’s blog, Quilts My Way, when I stumbled upon a picture of her Jam and Jellies quilt somewhere on the Internet. I loved the design, colour choice and simplicity of… +

Inspiration Series #1

When I started this blog in Spring 2015 I created a ‘Inspiration’ page in which I listed some of my favourite blogs and websites related to quilting. And actually I have never updated it since then … I had a look at it a while ago and realized the list no longer reflected my inspiration. Instead of refreshing it I decided to write a monthly post featuring quilts that I particularly like. That way I keep the initial idea of sharing my sources of inspiration while making information more dynamic. Quand j’ai débuté ce blog au printemps 2015, j’ai créé… +

Three more tote bags

I was so thrilled with my new tote bag last Spring that I directly cut pieces for making three more of them. And these pieces were waiting since then …Au printemps dernier, j’étais tellement emballée par mon nouveau sac que j’avais directement coupé des pièces pour en réaliser trois autres. Et ces pièces attendaient depuis … I always have a lot of fun choosing fabrics for these small projects.

Group exhibition

Only five days to go … Our group exhibition will open on Saturday 2 September and will run until Sunday 10 September.

A misunderstanding within our group when designing the poster that we only could correct for the digital format. We hope to have some visitors for our last day anyway … 😉Plus que cinq jours … Notre exposition de groupe commence samedi 2 septembre et sera ouverte jusqu’au dimanche 10 septembre. Si vous êtes en Suisse, vous avez peut-être… +
