One last week before the store closes definitively... Turning a page...
I am making a Flying Geese quilt with a friend, we make 4 geese of one fabric and she gets 2 and I get 2, it is going to be a fun quilt full of memories!
I usually work 7 days a week but decided I needed a day off this week. My back is telling me to rest... So I decided to work on my mystery quilt!
Have you followed us when we were doing it earlier this year? If not, we now sell the full pattern on the website...
I love it! I quilted one already! And I have another one to quilt, I can't wait to finish mine and quilt it!
|That's the one I quilted|
|That's one of my blocks!|
I love that quilt. We reproduced an antique one of course! It is just beautiful!
It has been a long time since I last wrote on this blog... sorry
So here are some recent news: I decided to go Montreal for Mother's Day, I had a wonderful time with my daughter Sophie! The weather was beautiful! Flowers were gorgeous! I spotted a quilted coat! The next morning a skunk looking for food... Very nice weekend!
Not quilting related post but...
I hope you've been watching the Olympic Games! As I was watching the closing ceremony I wondered where will it be next and to my surprise I saw they are going to take place in Paris, France in 2024!!!
Then I could not remember why the announcements were in French, then English then Japanese so I looked it up and found:
..., the founder of the IOC and “father” of the modern Olympics was a Frenchman, Baron Pierre de Coubertin. He saw the Games as an embodiment of noble ideals with a role in promoting peace and cross-cultural understanding.
In addition, he believed the competition itself, the struggle to overcome opponents, was more important than winning.
I'm so glad the Games happened! Amazing athletes from all over the world!
Beautiful closing ceremony!
Good morning, if you are in need of a baby quilt and don't want to sew, I put some baby quilt for sale on the website, check it out!
The other day, I went with a friend to visit the Quilt Museum in Cedarburg, WI. Beautiful exhibit! Sorry I am still not very good at organizing the pictures, I can't figure it out...
The weather is now nicer. We have had a lot of rain and scary storms but now everything is back to normal beautiful summer!
