FETE DES MERES



Bonne fête Maman!




Sunday is mother´s day in France, so here are some flowers for my dear mum.




I discovered that place through my yahoo quilt group and I found it so inspiring that I had to make a cup of tea straight away! Next time I make one, I will change (read: try to improve!) some details like the size or the fitting of the zipper.

I started a new project too! Yes I know, I need a new project like a hole in the head but I have to try to get rid of some of my fabric before it gets bad!

The blocks are 6" x 6" and easy made. My plan is to make a 8 x 12 blocks. I am just over the half now.

I will finish it before I buy the batting for my scrappy delectable mountains quilt so that I can purchase 2 packs at once, hence saving on shipment costs. That is what I told myself anyway for starting a new project!

I still haven´t heard of Margaret about my new 4SQS. I hope I will receive the name soon so that I can start.

Oh no, yet a new project!


I wish you a nice sunday, wether it is mother´s day for you or not!

Hi Gwen, I really like your new scrap quilt. What a lovely idea to use the scraps. This block would also make a nice table runner for x-mas.
I will keep it in mind.
Enjoy the weekend.

Happy Mother's Day!

I just love those little stars. They go so quickly and look like a million! Even my mom commented on mine, when I showed them to her the other day.

Your tea cup is simply beautiful, no wonder you "had" to make it.
