Hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Can't believe we are in December already! And that it's been a month since I've posted-- EGAD...
I have done some sewing, I'm happy to say.
I'll call this my November mini! It's the baby quilt I decided to make for our newest grandson, Aiden. This was a panel I found over the summer; I sashed each block, although you'll probably note that one of the blocks doesn't match. I RAN OUT of the panel blocks... so I scrounged around. Can you find it?
And I found this great boy fabric for the backing! Kids love to play with cars and now he'll have a track!
I went to my small quilt group last week and worked on a quick quilt I saw at my LQS so I bought some cute dalmation fireman fabric and whipped this up for a small boy.
I've also been plugging away at Barb's star swap (funwithbarb) and am half-way done!
My tuffett has been getting lots of use from the grandkids. They sit on it, lie on it; Eli even turned it over and sat on the bottom!
I had promised to post pictures of inspiration I found in beautiful paintings in Paris. There was a fabulous Dégas exhibit at one of my favorite museums, the D'Orsay, which was a former train station in an earlier life. This is the entry hallway! There are spectacular statutes up and down that are truly breathtaking. Even look at the ceiling!
The colors that Dégas interspersed amongst his dancers was fabulous, in my opinion.
Quilt patterns everywhere:
I'm still struggling with my Moda Blockheads II, not feeling happy with the "finished" product... hope to get to that this week...and will definitely post more this month!
