comprenez-vous?

Lately I have mostly been enjoying watching Les Rita Mitsouko videos on YouTube and listening to FIP radio streaming from France.

I have also been making a sort of kaleidoscope quilt top thing from ‘vintage’ [second-hand] sheets.

This is the first time I have

– used a rotary cutter. Much faster than using scissors!

– used sheets as a patchwork material. It’s quite thin to work with, but the benefit is that both sides have the same print, so you can get the mirrored effect in the pattern pieces.

– made such a big patchwork.

Also, things came out of the kiln!

We are visiting Dublin this week, and it will be the first visit for me! I’ve been fortifying my liver in preparation, with not a great deal of success. Au revoir!

    somehow I had always thought you were a (large scale) patchwork pro. I read so much about patchwork/quilting online…in my head it’ll be so easy and I just need to make a start at it! in truth I haven’t used my sewing machine in about six years and I need to buy a foot pedal for it as I have lost mine and also I was never very good at it before anyway…..and my plans of ‘learning this summer’ (how many times have I made that resolution??) are somewhat stymied by not begin in Scotland for most of the summer. silly Helen.
