New Improv Project

I started last week a new project which is a series of Improv mini quilts. I decided to explore HST pattern (Half Square Triangles), inspired by a few quilters I follow on Instagram. The list below is probably not complete but I listed the one who came to my mind if you’d like to have a look at their work. J’ai commencé la semaine dernière un nouveau projet qui est une série de mini quilts Impro. J’ai décidé d’explorer le motif HST (triangle demi carré), inspirée par quelques quilteuses que je suis sur Instagram. La liste n’est probablement pas exhaustive… +

Quiltcon submissions

I received great news last week! All my five submissions into next Quiltcon have been accepted! My Spotlight quilt will be on display in the Piecing category. Actually I had great expectations for this quilt. I thought that if I had one quilt accepted that would be this one. J’ai reçu une super nouvelle la semaine dernière ! Mes cinq soumissions pour le prochain Quiltcon ont été acceptées ! Mon quilt Spotlight sera exposé dans la catégorie Piecing. En fait, j’avais de grandes attentes pour ce quilt … Je pensais que si un des mes quilts était sélectionné se serait… +

Small projects

I finished a few small projects using the Flurry Christmas collection from Ruby Star Fabrics that I spoke you about in my two latest posts. J’ai terminé quelques petits projets avec la collection Flurry Christmas de chez Ruby Star Fabrics dont je vous avais parlé dans mes deux articles précédents. Two cushion covers and three mug rugs. Deux housses de coussin et trois mug rugs (tapis de tasse). I also made three small fabric baskets matching the mug rugs using the Pot Cozy tutorial by SOTAK Handmade. J’ai également réalisé trois petits paniers assortis, en utilisant le tutoriel Pot Cozy… +

Second Quilting Retreat

I had the opportunity to attend two quilting retreats this past October! One at the beginning of the month with my friends of Patchmania group and the second one organized by the Patchwork du Léman, in St-Maurice (Switzerland). I really enjoyed spending time with old friends and got to know better the other attendees.Again I chose to work on small projects, mixing piecing and appliqué. J’ai eu l’occasion de participer deux fois à des vacances patchwork au mois d’octobre ! La première au début du mois avec mes amies du groupe Patchmania et la deuxième organisée par le Patchwork du… +

Quilting Retreat

I spent last week in South of France with my friends of Patchmania group. For this quilting retreat, I decided to work on different small projects, alterning machine piecing and hand applique. I made this small top which will be turned into a table topper. J’ai passé la semaine dernière dans le sud de la France avec mes amies du groupe Patchmania. Pour ces vacances patchwork, j’ai décidé de travailler sur différents petits projets en alternant assemblage machine et appliqué main. J’ai réalisé ce petit top qui deviendra un dessus de meuble. All these prints from different collections by Carolyn… +

European Patchwork Meeting 2021

There were definitely less vendors than usual but one of my favorite shops in Europe, Quiltcabin (Germany), was there … 🙂 Il y avaient clairement moins de vendeurs que d’habitude, mais une de mes boutiques préférées en Europe, Quiltcabin (Allemagne), était présente … 🙂 And now some favorites … In the exhibition Light The World curated by SAQA, I was attracted directly by this quilt, Fiber Optics, made by Maria Shell (USA). Et maintenant quelques coups de coeur … Dans l’exposition Light The World organisée par SAQA, j’ai été attirée directement par ce quilt, Fiber Optics, réalisé par Maria Shell… +

Spotlight – A finished quilt

Put your sun glasses on, here is Spotlight 🙂 The palette was maybe subconsciously influenced by the two Pantone colours set for the year 2021. Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, a bright yellow. Mettez vos lunettes de soleil, voici Spotlight 🙂 La palette a peut-être été influencée inconsciemment par les deux couleurs Pantone définies pour l’année 2021. Ultimate Gray (gris) et Illuminating, un jaune vif. This quilt is a mix of machine piecing and hand applique, like I did for my Gelateria quilt.I used two prints, from two different collections, designed by Latifah Saafir. The brick print is from Grafic, a… +

Patchmania Exhibit

Our exhibit closed last Sunday. I spent as much time as possible on site for the length of the exhibit and then had some catching up to do at home … Now that everything is pretty much in hand I can share with you a few pictures.A challenge was to mix my Modern Quilt style pieces with traditional quilts … Finally my Gelateria quilt got along pretty well with Nina’s quilt 🙂 Notre exposition s’est terminée dimanche dernier. J’ai passé le plus de temps possible sur place pendant toute la durée de l’exposition et j’ai donc eu du retard à… +

Moonlight – A finished quilt

You maybe remember the big rectangle cushion I made this Spring. I decided to use the same design, though a bit extended, for my submission to next Quiltcon Fabric Challenge category. Vous vous souvenez peut-être du grand coussin rectangulaire que j’ai réalisé ce printemps. J’ai décidé d’utiliser le même design, un peu étendu, pour ma soumission au prochain Quiltcon dans la catégorie Fabric Challenge. I used all four colours of the challenge though in small quantity. Now I have some concerns about my quilt totally fitting the theme since the top contains mostly neutrals. Well, we’ll see … J’ai utilisé… +

Upcoming Exhibit

Hey ! It looks like we will finally be able to set up our group exhibit later this month. It was initially planned for August 2020 but, like many other events, we had to postpone it to 2021.We regret though to have to give up our usual opening reception which is a very friendly and festive moment but also very busy. Unfortunately it would be too difficult to follow the rules on hygiene and social distancing in this context. Hey ! Il semble finalement que notre exposition de groupe pourra avoir lieu à la fin du mois. Elle était initialement… +
