I am going home! Only two days left and we will be on our way with a short stay in Paris. We are heading west to Brittany, hence the flowers (Hydrangea is a kind of national flower there where most of them are blue and huge 4 meters high and 4 meters wide). My Hydrangea don´t get that big and turn all pink, still I like them.
Before I go, I will show two small quilts I made to try a method to make curves without sewing round seams. It is a folding method where a lot of pieces are made out of a square folded diagonally in two. When you fold back that diagonal, it gives a curve as it is on the bias.
The first quit is machine sewed and machine quilted with a variegated gold thread which sparkles very nicely against the black fabric.
The second one is machine sewed and machine quilted in the ditch.
I hope my explanations were clear! It is hard to explain in a few words and without being able to show face to face.
If any interest is there, I could make a tutorial but first after my holidays!
I will be gone about three weeks without computer. I will try to take some pictures though as I have a few quilts in France as well which I haven´t photographed with my digi camera yet.
I wish you all a nice month of July.
