First 9 Liberty DJ babies

Hello dear followers,

here are my first 9 Liberty Dear Jane babies. Today I sat down thinking about how many blocks I wanted to sew. I excluded blocks that I didn't particularly like and ended up with 132 blocks I will probably sew. The quilt will then be 11 x 12 blocks. That's for now....

I wish you all a great Sunday. Hugs.

Hello friends,

It's Blogger's Quilt Festival again!!! That's a great opportunity to show your work and meet lots of great new people around the world.

This year Amy divided the presentation in categories. I decided to present a wall hanging quilt. A little Ticker Tape quilt i made out of my Dear Jane scraps. I made it just to have a little memory of my quilt. Back and binding made out of the same fabrics as my DJ.

Quilt measurements: 12" x 12"
Technique: hand sewed and hand quilted

Don't forget to visit AMY'S CREATIVE SIDE and have a look to all the fabulous entries and have fun.

Hugs. Pink

Liberty Dear Jane in progress

Hello friends,

here are my frist 6 Liberty DJ block, sandwiched and hand quilted. They are so fun to make. As you can see on the back of each block I used the same fabric I used for the block. I took inspiration from here.

As far as I have a little spare time I'll go on with more blocks.

Have a look at this blog: CELEBRATE HAND QUILTING They have a fun Blog Hop, all about hand quilting.

Have fun. Hugs. Pink

Hi friends,

today I'll post pictures from Trentemoult. It is a small former fishermen's village. Now more an artistic community with lovely restaurants, charming houses and quiet corners. I spent my Nantes days there in a cosy Chambre d'hôtes. Every enening I tried a new restaurant for my dinner... great food!!! In the morning I took the little Navibus to reach the other side of the river and go to the center of Nantes.
Very charmant!!

Have a lovely and joyful week! Hugs.
