Anyway, have my sewing mo jo back now, and decided to use a KF jelly roll from the Quilt exhibition- wanted to do a sixteen patch quit for a long time- so sit back and see the missing weeks in pictures!
Art Deco Piscine Musee
textile books galore in the museum
Get an eyeful of these hunks!
want this cabinet in my lounge!
gorgeous shuttles, came close to slipping one in my pocket but I restrained myself!
Lille is a lovely town, plenty to see, only an hour and a half from London by Eurostar!
Needless to say we found a fabric shop and I got my hands on 5 pieces of french linen prints- must post a picture later. Not sure what to do with them yet.And of course, a couple of liberty prints- only I could go all the way to France and get a British fabric!
And here is the small quilt top I made this weekend- if you look too closely you can see a few misalignments- I realise the need for accuracy the smaller the pieces, and I have a habit of stretching the fabric with the iron instead of pressing, however, hand made quilts dont need to be perfect in my opinion.
