Six more Flowers

The weather has been very nice this weekend here in Lux.
 And as I'm not much in to gardening, I enjoyed  sitting outside in my garden (not in the sun, though)
doing some Flower Garden, they are really fun to make.
I have not still decided whether I appliqué on a background or piece them together.

I also basted a top and used Sharon´s  technique.
On her webside you can find all sorts of free classes which are very helpful.
Quilting is easy with this basting, you don't have to start in the middle, just start at the top or the bottom.
 I have used this technique twice before and it is perfect.

Happy quilting.

Festival in Lux

Going to the Quilt Festival in Wilwerwiltz (Luxembourg) yesterday,
I was amazed to find Masako Wakayama and her quilts there.
She is a well-known international quilt artist who opened her Quilt shop
 "Crib Quilt" in 1987 in Tokyo, Japan. 
 She also has a fabric line called "American Country" which is absolutely gorgeous.

In the picture above Masako is showing us how to use Punch Needle,
unfortunately the needles were sold out.

Hear are some pictures I took.

The pictures do not need any explanation, they just speak for them selves.

Here is the link to Crib Quilt you can find the English up in the right corner.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Take care and happy stitching.


Civil War Bride

Well  - block number four, I'm so proud of myself.
I thank the ladies in the  CWB group, they give me so much inspiration and courage.


Tin and Hexagon

I went to OEQC in Veldhoven last week. It was really good. I got more of  "Den Haan & Wagenmakers" fabric for my Snowball-quilt and I also bought some fabric for my Hexies.

The show was great, the theme was "Rhythm" and next year the theme will be "Blues".

I hope it is the color blue not the feeling blue. Maybe both.

I went to Rotterdam as well and at the Tuesday Market I found this Tin,
I had to have it, I don't know what it is about Tins, they always speak to me and say "pick me".

One more hexy flower done. This beautiful fabric was sent to me from my Secret Pal.
Every month I get a package from her with beautiful fabrics.
Twice I have got "Marimekko" which is absolutely gorgeous.

Until next time, happy stitching
