Quilting in progress

I hadn’t a lot of time for quilting this past month but I managed to find a few hours here and there anyway. Je n’ai pas eu beaucoup de temps pour le patchwork ce dernier mois mais j’ai quand même réussi à trouver quelques heures ici et là. I am still not halfway through the quilting on this project but I am progressing a little bit at a time. Je ne suis pas encore à la moitié du quilting sur ce projet mais j’avance petit à petit. The inside of the arrows will be quilted with diagonal lines. A lot… +

Luna Lovequilts - Improv curve quilt - Top finished


July 2019

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… +

Luna Lovequilts - My submission to 2019 Festival of Quilts in Modern Quilts category


July 2019

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… +

Luna Lovequilts - A finished quilt top - Diaspora pattern designed by psbquilts - Snap to Grid collection by Kimberly Kight


May 2019

Pattern testing

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of testing ‘Diaspora’, a pattern designed by my friend Pachy @psbquilts. Il y a quelques semaines, j’ai eu le plaisir de tester “Diaspora” un modèle dessiné par mon amie Pachy @psbquilts. While at Quiltcon last February I bought a bundle of Snap to Grid collection by Kimberly Kight for Cotton and Steel Fabrics that I was very anxious to use. So I decided it was the perfect fabric pull for Pachy’s pattern and combined it to matching solids 🙂 For the background I used two Essex Linen fabrics, Charcoal and Black. A Quiltcon… +

January 2019

Work in progress and publication

Even though I planned to do it I did not post anything last week. Some of you maybe thought I was unwell but it was just laziness 🙂 So here is a round-up of my progresses these past two weeks. In addition to finishing a secret project I will talk about mid February, I worked on three projects that are on my FAL list. I am almost finished with #1, binding four mini Improv quilts. More details about this shortly so stay tuned ! J’avais planifié de le faire mais je n’ai finalement rien posté la semaine dernière. Certains ont… +

So Dearly QAL #8 and finished top

And here is the eighth and last part of the So Dearly QAL hosted by Gosia at Quilts My Way. Et voici la huitième et dernière partie du So Dearly QAL organisé par Gosia de Quilts My Way. To be honest I had a couple of troubles while making this part … Pour être honnête, j’ai eu quelques problèmes dans la réalisaton de cette partie … I only had one seam to stitch when I realised that the two sections were not the same size … How could it be possible when working with Paper Piecing ?! It took me a while… +

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 - A finished quilt top - Inspired by Camille Walala's colours and graphic patterns

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… +
