Hand applique curves

It sounds my trip to Austin for attending Quiltcon was ages ago and, if I think about it, it is less than two months … Have you also lost track of time lately ?! We are now nearing the end of five weeks of isolation and almost got into rut … The second week had been hard for me though since I felt a bit down. Maybe in reaction to the overflow of energy I felt the first few days … 😉 Il me semble que mon voyage à Austin pour assister à Quiltcon Ã©tait il y a des lustres et, si… +

Luna Lovequilts - Hand applique circles - Work in progress


February 2020

Work in progress

I was sick for a few days last week and stayed warm, under a quilt. I was able to hand stitch meanwhile anyway … J’ai été malade quelques jours la semaine dernière et je suis restée au chaud, sous un quilt. J’ai quand même été capable de coudre à la main pendant ce temps … A lot of circles were appliqued those few days and I could join the units together over weekend. I have now finished two out of the four parts of this top. You can read more about the techniques used and the source of inspiration in… +

Quilting retreat

Every two years the Club du Léman organizes a three day workshop. Two classes in different fields are usually offered, Patchwork and Textile Art / Mixed media. There is also the opportunity to attend as a quilting retreat and this is the option I chose this year. The class with Katie Pasquini Masopust was called Fractured Landscapes and though you can stylize the picture you chose as a basis, the final result is too pictorial to my taste. The second teacher was Eszter Bornemisza, a Hungarian artist who works with mixed media (fabric, paper and printing). I really admire her works… +

Luna Lovequilts - Top finished, inspired by Latifah Saafir pattern released in issue #12 of Simply Moderne magazine


August 2018

Next logical step

This quilt top is mostly inspired by a pattern designed by Latifah Saafir which was released in Simply Moderne magazine. You can see a picture on my original post. Ce top est en grande partie inspiré par un modèle de Latifah Saafir qui est paru dans le magazine Simply Moderne. Vous pouvez voir une photo sur mon article original. With a few changes though … The original has only one background colour (I used three different fabrics) and the curves are machine pieced (I used hand appliqué). I changed somewhat the layout for my needs too and grouped the half… +

Luna Lovequilts - Hand sewing project using Gleaned fabric collection by Carolyn Friedlander

A new hand sewing project

I have been thinking of an easy to take with me hand project for some time now. I started a few but wasn’t crazy about the beginning and gave them up rather quickly. I even tried EPP seeing so many projects on the Internet. But I didn’t really like this piecing method. Je réfléchis depuis quelques temps déjà à un projet main, facile à emporter avec moi. J’en ai commencé quelques uns mais je n’ai pas été emballée par les débuts et je les ai abandonnés assez rapidement. En voyant tant de projets sur Internet, j’ai même essayé l’English Paper… +

Quilty 365 – Top #4 finished

The fourth and last quilt for my Quilty 365 project progressed at last ! Le quatrième et dernier quilt pour mon projet Quilty 365 a enfin progressé ! I finally went for a print designed by Carolyn Friedlander, Crosshatch white on white, for the background fabric. J’ai finalement opté pour un imprimé de Carolyn Friedlander, Crosshatch blanc sur blanc, pour le tissu de fond. I started to quilt it earlier this week and chose an even grid quilting design. It isn’t worth a picture at the moment but I hope to make some progress in the afternoon and be able… +
