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....
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.
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.
today I'd like to
show you some pictures of a very traditional religious festivity here
on S. Miguel. The festivity is called Nosso Senhor Santo Cristo dos
Milagres and many many people are coming to visit it.
That was last Sunday.... and today we had the great adventure of Whale Watching!!! And we have seen a lot of dolphins, orcas and whales...
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.
