Stretching a quilt on a canvas

Here is the first finished piece of my Improv mini quilt series. I decided to mount all the pieces of this series on frames or canvas as the finishing method. 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… +

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… +

Teaching Improv and Curves

I spoke about it in several blog posts since the beginning of the year … And at last, it happened ! I teached my two day class about Improvisation last Friday and Saturday. J’en ai parlé dans plusieurs articles depuis le début de l’année … Et c’est enfin arrivé ! J’ai donné mon cours d’improvisation sur deux jours vendredi et samedi derniers.  Curaçao quilt Ten participants worked on the four different motifs I used in my Curaçao quilt and my four mini quilts. Dix participantes ont travaillé sur les quatre motifs que j’ai utilisés dans mon quilt Curaçao et mes quatre mini quilts. Isabelle I love… +

On my design wall

I kept exploring further free form curves lately. Dernièrement, j’ai continué d’explorer les courbes coupées à main levée. Some of these blocks will probably remain exercises … Certains de ces blocs vont probablement rester au stade d’exercice … While others will be developped and included in a larger project, Alors que d’autres seront développés et inclus dans un plus grand projet, And a couple of them will be finished at the actual size. The two small tops below are about 16″ x 16″ and I will turn them into cushions. Et quelques uns seront terminés à leur taille actuelle. Les… +

Sample blocks and more

November is just around the corner and this week I had in my calendar to prepare my upcoming Improv class. Novembre approche à grands pas et, cette semaine, j’avais mis au planning de préparer mon cours Improvisation. My intention was to make sample blocks that I thought would be useful for understanding the assembly process. Mon intention était de réaliser des blocs de démonstration, que je pensais être utiles pour comprendre l’étape d’assemblage.  Still on track … Encore sur les rails … I tried a colour combination I had in mind for a while and started to deviate from the… +

Improv curve top

You maybe remember the improv curve project I shared last week. After having pieced a few more blocks I thought it was a bit boring and that it needed a little something like the addition of an extra colour or a print. Vous vous souvenez peut-être du projet de courbes improvisées que j’ai montré la semaine dernière. Après avoir piécé quelques blocs de plus j’ai trouvé qu’il était un peu ennuyeux et qu’il avait besoin d’un petit quelque chose comme l’ajout d’une couleur supplémentaire ou un imprimé. A medium blue solid was an option but I finally went for this… +

Quiltcon from home

Quiltcon is in full swing in Pasadena at the moment. I had to cancel my trip to California but hopefully I am enjoying the event somewhat through social medias. Thank you so much everyone who shared pictures of my two quilts hanging at the show and who sent me such lovely comments. Quiltcon bat son plein à Pasadena en ce moment. J’ai dû annuler mon voyage en Californie mais heureusement je profite un peu de l’événement via les réseaux sociaux. Un grand merci à toutes les personnes qui ont partagé des photos de mes deux quilts exposés et qui m’ont… +

Improv curves – Top finished

Earlier this month the goal I set for January One Monthly Goal was to complete a top with my improv curves blocks. Not only my goal is achieved, I am thrilled about the result ! :-)) Au début du mois, le but que je m’étais fixé pour le One Monthly Goal de janvier était de terminer un top avec mes blocs courbes improvisées. Non seulement mon but est atteint, mais je suis super contente du résultat ! :-)) At that moment only nine blocks were pieced and I had envisioned the two plain borders in Essex Linen fabric. I finally settled on… +

First quilt trunk show and class teaching

Blogging is very convenient … You can speak about what you love to do while being behind the scenes.

Your public is right in front of you and you can’t hide behind your computer screen ! Bloguer est très pratique … Vous pouvez parler de votre passion tout en restant derrière la scène. Si vos lecteurs s’ennuient, ils peuvent simplement passer à l’article de blog suivant… +
