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


September 2018

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 - 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… +

So Dearly QAL #5

Like every second Monday of the month, it is my turn to share a part of the mystery QAL hosted by Gosia at Quilts My Way. Comme chaque deuxième lundi du mois, c’est mon tour de vous montrer une partie du QAL mystère organisé par Gosia de Quilts My Way. This part #5 is almost a reverse image of the third one and I placed the colours in the same way. Cette partie #5 est presque l’image inversée de la troisième et j’ai placé les couleurs de la même manière. My friend Mireille is still sewing along and sent me a picture… +

Luna Lovequilts - Hand appliqué half circles - Mixing Gleaned and Polk collections by Carolyn Friedlander


August 2018

Work in progress

I have been waiting for Carolyn Friedlander new Polk collection for a while and ordered some of the prints as soon as it was available in shops. J’attends la nouvelle collection Polk de Carolyn Friedlander depuis quelques temps et j’ai commandé quelques imprimés dès qu’elle a été disponible en magasin. The designs are similar to the Gleaned collection which I am using for this project and thought I maybe could mix the two collections. So I had put the project on hold while waiting for my order to arrive. Les designs sont similaires à la collection Gleaned que j’utilise pour… +

July 2018

A bit of everything

The two wall hangings, Neon and Eclat, and the Baby quilt I recently shared here were actually completed before the beginning of June. Apart from my So Dearly QAL project I didn’t sew a lot these past weeks … I managed to make some progress on this appliqué project though and love how it is turning out. Les deux panneaux, Neon et Eclat, et le Baby quilt que j’ai montré récemment ici ont en fait été terminés avant le début du mois de juin. A part mon projet So Dearly QAL, je n’ai pas beaucoup fait de couture ces dernières semaines … J’ai quand même réussi à avancer… +

So Dearly QAL #3

Have you already downloaded and made your third part of the So Dearly QAL hosted by Gosia at Quilts My Way ? Avez vous déjà téléchargé et réalisé votre troisième partie du So Dearly QAL organisé par Gosia de Quilts My Way ? While preparing this blog post yesterday afternoon I realized that I had a few mistakes in my block … I had used colours instead of background fabric for the three pointy pieces at the top of the block. I pondered upon the best way to correct it for a while and finally decided to start over since I had no motivation to… +

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


May 2018

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… +

So Dearly QAL #2

If you are sewing along with us you probably have already seen part #2 of the design that Gosia at Quilts My Way revealed last week. Here is my ‘sherbet’ colour palette version ! Si vous participez avec nous, vous avez probablement déjà vu la partie #2 du motif que Gosia de Quilts My Way a révélée la semaine dernière. Voici ma version avec palette de couleurs “sorbets” ! Already an idea of the full motif ?! Anyway it is better to use only one fabric for all lime green pieces labelled ‘B’ on the assembly diagram so that your central motif stand out… +
