Impact – A finished Quilt

I shared in progress pictures of this project in several previous posts and I’m happy to be able to show you now the final result! J’avais montré des photos de ce projet en cours de réalisation dans plusieurs articles précédents et je suis contente de pouvoir vous montrer maintenant le résultat final ! While writing this post, I looked for my notes about the piecing but didn’t find anything. Possibly because I didn’t write anything 😉 So I have to rely on my poor memory … I drew the overall design to its actual size on paper and then cut… +

April Recap

Some news about what I’ve been working on since my latest post … 🙂 Quelques nouvelles de l’avancement de mes projets depuis mon dernier article … 🙂 Quilting I started the quilting on a top which has been waiting since last July.

AAA – Exhibit Review

The exhibit closed this past Sunday, so it is time now for a review of this new to me experience of exhibiting with artists outside of the textile sphere. The atmosphere was friendly on the whole and I was pleased to get to know and share with other participants. For most of them, Art is a hobby and I imagine that makes a difference 🙂 L’exposition a fermé ses portes ce dimanche, donc le moment est venu pour un bilan de cette nouvelle expérience d’exposer avec des artistes en dehors du milieu textile. L’ambiance était sympathique dans l’ensemble et j’ai… +

You can find more details on their website. The list of 24 artists exhibiting this year is here. Click on the participant’s… +

Quiltcon 2022 – Part 1

Quiltcon, the convention dedicated to Modern Quilts, was held in Phoenix (Arizona) this year and I had the chance to attend it again. It is my favorite quilt show not only for the unique quilts, the ambiant enthusiasm and the lectures (I attended eight !), but for the positive and friendly atmosphere that makes it so special. So I am going to start this recap by sharing the work of my friends. Quiltcon, la convention dédiée aux Modern Quilts, a eu lieu cette année à Phoenix (Arizona) et j’ai eu la chance d’y participer à nouveau. C’est mon exposition favorite… +

Using a Canvas – Second Part

A few weeks back I shared some pictures of my first attempt at stretching a mini quilt on a canvas. Here is the link to the post in case you missed it. Though I was pretty happy with the result, I still wanted to make the process easier for the corners and fix them better. Il y a quelques semaines, j’ai montré des photos de mon premier essai de montage d’un quilt sur un canevas. Voici le lien sur l’article au cas où vous l’auriez manqué. Bien que j’étais assez contente du résultat, j’avais quand même envie de faciliter la… +

Voici la première pièce terminée de ma série de mini quilts Impro. J’ai décidé de monter toute les pièces de cette série sur des cadres ou canevas. It was my first time using a canvas to showcase a quilt and I first went through information online. I finallly decided to start from a post dating back to 2010 on a blog that doesn’t look to be active anymore. But you… +

Boxy Pouch – Custom order

As I mentioned in a previous post, I got a custom order of fifteen Boxy pouches from one of my cousins. She filled them with home made cosmetics and gifted them as Christmas presents. Comme je l’avais mentionné dans un article précédent, j’ai travaillé sur une commande personnalisée de quinze pochettes Boxy pour une de mes cousines. Elle les a remplies avec des cosmétiques faits maison et les a offertes comme cadeaux de Noël. She decided to take the two pouches I already had on hand and, for the thirteen others, chose an accent fabric from my stash for each… +
