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… +

Balance

Have you heard about Curated Quilts mini quilt challenges ? Their latest challenge is about exploring the idea of ‘Balance’ using stripes in the design. Here is my submission, ‘Balance’. I approached the theme with the concept of ‘communicating vessels’ in mind. It measures 15.5″ x 15.5″. Avez-vous entendu parler des challenges de mini quilts organisés par Curated Quilts ? Leur dernier challenge porte sur l’idée “Equilibre” en utilisant des bandes comme éléments du design. Voici ma proposition, “Balance”.

Curated Quilts Challenge

I guess current events also turned your everyday life upside down. But let’s look on the bright side … Having to stay at home when you are a quilter and fabric hoarder is not a big punishment 😉 Hopefully quilting allows to distract a bit from all this anxiety. J’imagine que l’actualité a aussi bouleversé votre vie de tous les jours. Mais regardons le bon côté des choses … Devoir rester à la maison n’est pas une grosse punition pour une quilteuse et collectionneuse de tissus 😉 Heureusement le patchwork permet d’échapper un peu à toute cette anxiété. Have you… +

Quiltcon 2020 – Part 1

Hey! I am back from my trip to Quiltcon that was held in Austin – Texas this year. Not totally recovered from all the excitement of the show and jetlag. I feel a little less like a zombie today anyway … Quiltcon is a great show but most importantly a place where you can catch up with friends. I had three quilts in the show and my LOVE quilt was the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot with my friends Kathy, Sarah, Marla and Sophie. Hé! Je suis de retour de mon voyage à Quiltcon qui avait lieu cette année… +

A few new projects

Despite the heat … I got a lot of work done on two quilts I would like to submit to next Quiltcon. Malgré la chaleur … J’ai bien avancé sur deux quilts que j’aimerais soumettre au prochain Quiltcon. Bold design and bright colours for the second one as well ! Un design fort et des couleurs vives pour le deuxième également ! I designed these two projects completely on my computer and even chose the colours while designing. So I was in need of a bit of improvisation … I don’t know where these blocks will lead me or even… +

Quiltcon 2019 – The fun part

I hope you won’t be bored of seeing my face since it is a lot-of -me-pictures kind of post … 🙂 These four days at Quiltcon have been a whirlwind ! The fun already started at pre-registration, the evening before the show opens, since I met a few friends while waiting in the queue for getting my name tag. The ceremony awards was held right after and I was particularly anxious to attend it. I got an email ten days before to let me know that two of my quilts were awarded. I was surprised to receive the first prize… +
