Luna Lovequilts - Modern mini quilt - Stretched on a canvas

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… +

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… +

Luna Lovequilts - Rainbow quilted pouch in progress


February 2021

Work in progress

Anyone else experiencing a lack of motivation at the moment ?! Anyway … I started to work on several small projects like these front panels from the Norfolk Pouch pattern by SOTAK Handmade. I had to put them aside though because I am waiting for a zipper order to arrive and also for my fabric labels that are still in the designing step … Quelqu’un d’autre ressent un manque de motivation en ce moment ?! Bon … J’ai quand même commencé à travailler sur plusieurs petits projets comme ces panneaux du modèle Norfolk Pouch de SOTAK Handmade. J’ai dû les… +

Machine straight line quilting

? ? ? First, just a quick note to mention that a few people left comments recently that I am not able to answer to. I don’t know why but it has happened more frequently these past months … If you wrote a comment and never heard from me it is probably because your email address is hidden and then I have no means to contact you.

New project – Inspired by a mural

When I posted my list of projects last week, I put first a new project inspired by a mural I saw in Nashville. I made a lot of progress over the weekend and here is what it looks like now !

J’ai beaucoup avancé pendant le week-end et voilà à quoi il ressemble maintenant ! For the first time I decided to draw the whole design to its actual size on paper. This quilt will be… +

A finished top

The colours and shapes of this project are inspired by Camille Walala work. She is a French based in London artist, graduate in Textile Design though she works at the moment in other fields such as Interior Design or Street Art murals. Her bright block colours and graphic patterns make me smile ! You can have a look at her colourful world on Instagram or her website. Les couleurs et formes de ce projet sont inspirées du travail de Camille Walala. C’est une artiste française basée à Londres, diplômée en Design Textile bien que en ce moment elle travaille dans… +

Luna Lovequilts - Tutorial - Hiding quilting thread ends

Hiding quilting thread ends

Earlier this week I had a discussion with an IG friend on how to hide threads when machine quilting. She thinks this topic could interest other people and suggested that I share my method. And this suggestion was very welcome since I haven’t really significant progress to blog about this week 🙂 I only pieced some extra blocks for my improv curves project and I am now joining them together. Cette semaine, j’ai eu une discussion avec une amie Instagram à propos de comment arrêter les fils dans le cas du quilting machine. Elle pense que le sujet pourrait intéresser d’autres… +

How I choose a quilting design

For some projects I settle on the quilting design already during the assembly step. But if I have no particular plan I sketch a few designs before getting into the quilting. I took a few picture to show you my process. Pour certains projets, je suis déjà fixée sur le design du quilting lors de l’étape d’assemblage. Mais si je n’ai pas d’idée particulière, je dessine quelques possibilités avant de me lancer dans le quilting. J’ai pris quelques photos pour vous montrer ma démarche.
