Who doesn't know Cécile Franconie in France? You may probably know her from her famous blog Facile Cécile. Cécile is the person with whom I had embroidered the chickadee. Do your remember? This is the embroidery I turned into a quilted vase.
Cécile's house in the quilt exhibition was different from the other artists. Her house was a corner of her booth. Trying to get close was really difficult whatever the day and the time as there were so many people! You can really see that the book launch was a real success! And a well deserved one, IMHO. The book is filled with projects and creativity. The book looks like her so much. Cécile's works are like her, I think... modern with a touch of traditional or should I say traditional with a touch of modernity? Each project is spring-like with all the blooming embroidered flowers.
Look at the atmosphere and presentation of her creations. It reflects Cécile's world perfectly.
When making a project from another designer, here Di Ford's Mountmellick, she transforms it to make it a very personal version. Have a look below at this quilt. Don't you like? I LOVE it! I also love the version of one of Cécile's friend.
Cécile's version is the first photo below, her friend's is the second.
Everything is lovely, from the choice of fabrics to the embroideries decorating the blocks.
A beautiful presentation of charming quilts, creative boxes, pouches and so much more. A vintage feeling in a modern world.
Have you seen her mini Ipad case with 1/4 inch inch hexagons? OMG!!! This is such a beautiful case. Click here if you want to see it ;-)
And here is the link if you want to browse through the pages of her book.
Two more posts will follow about this quilt show before resuming posting about my works ;-)
Until next post,
