Today, I'd like to show you the three books I have on my nightstand. They are all VERY inspiring.
It also has patterns of 29 of the heritage quilts designed by Kim McLean. It is definitely a must-have!
This book by Brigitte Giblin is also very inspiring with many reinterpreted traditional quilts. The exhibition in Nantes was wonderful and I keep looking at the quilts in the book. Some of them have made their entry in my to-do list ;-)
I made the Sunburst block in class with Kathy. This will be a small wall hanging. I will next make the big Sunburst quilt. I also dream of making the quilt on the cover.
As I mentioned in the title, I am a bit frustrated these days. All my quilting stuff has been packed 10 days ago because I have started a major home renovation. So there are piles of boxes everywhere and I have neither space nor time for any quilting or stitching these days... and it's going to last a little while. Not mentioning the dust and noise!! As I am doing part of it myself, I know that most of my summer vacation will be spent painting!!! It is fun though and very nice to do the last part of my house renovation and to know that it is going to be just as I dreamt it would be.
Yet, I'll try to get some sewing done when I feel like it. So, my plan this weekend is to sort a few WIPs and store them with my sewing basics into one box I can have access to and if I have still some energy in the evening, I'll grab my fabrics and needles.
I will not be posting a lot in the coming months but will be reading your blogs from time to time. And if I manage to have a few blocks finished, I'll post a few photos.
Du grand Bleu !
