Stitch Me Club Part 2 and a quilt top waiting to be quilted.

Part 2 of the Stitch Me Club has been a real pleasure : stitching the inside of the project, stitching a flower for a scissor fob and sewing a fabric flower that will hold a pair of scissor in the case. This is the perfect project to give a go to techniques you had never tried before. That was the case for me as I had never used the English paper-piecing method for Grandmother's Flower Garden... and my first impression is that it can be very addictive!!!!

Natalie is a great designer and this project is like attending an online class. You get help whenever you need it, step by step photos on how to do each technique. I hesitated to do it as my to-do list was way too long but I do know now that I would have regretted not to have participated to such a wonderful project.

Once again, sorry for the bad quality of the photos with my phone which, unfortunately do not make justice to the projects.


And for the quilt top of the Mystery Quilt2 of Born To Quilt, the borders are sewn and it will be quilted this fall/winter as soon as my daughter's quilt is finished. Here you can have a close-up view of the fabric I used for the borders and the one I will use for the binding.

It was a bit windy this morning!!! May be a better view...


Until later,

  2. The mystery quilt looks fantastic - I felt a real sense of achievement when I eventually finished Vero's design - and imagine you felt the same. Mine is still waiting to be hand quilted - I guess I will sit and do this by the fire in the winter months! I love your blog - you are so creative!

  4. bonsoir David,
    ton quilt va être superbe. J'ai hâte de voir le quilting. Je réfléchis à celui de mon " a little porch time" de linda hall.
    Je t'envie pour ton prochain voyage, visiter la célèbre boutique de Véro est une étape incontournable pour des amoureux du style country. J'ai habité en Bourgogne, malheureusement c'était au début des années 90 et je ne connaissais pas encore Born to quilt.
    Je crois que Nataliejo habite également en Bourgogne... ;-))
    bonnes vacances à vous quatre.

  8. Hexagons have taken over with all my friends but I'm not being swayed. I find as soon as I put a quilt on the line to photograph the wind starts. Nice to see someone else has the same problem. Haven't started making any of the bags yet from the Yoko Saito book.

  13. Bonjour,
    J'ai découvert votre blog par le biais de celui de Nathalie ( atelier perdu). Votre quilt mystère 2 est magnifique. J'ai honte mais je n'ai réalisé que la moitié de ce superbe modèle mais entre temps j'ai participé au quilt camp de Véro en avril et j'ai craqué pour beaucoup de nouveaux projets.
    Bonne continuation !
