A wonderful quilt full of love... It started with a model from Kate Spain (Joy: http://www.unitednotions.com/fp_joy.pdf), but I decided to change the fabrics and used Horizon (http://www.unitednotions.com/fcc-horizon.pdf), also by Kate Spain. It took me so long time... Spanning over at least 1,5 years... Even for the binding... The quilting was done in south of France (http://www.quilting-petitar.com/nos-r%C3%A9alisations/)... And they did just an absolutely wonderful job... I was so inspired by a course from Jacquie Gering (Creative quilting with your walking foot from Craftsy) and I asked them to do something similar which was probably much harder than what they thought because they aligned lines on the pinwheels... Also my white fabric was a very old linen sheet from my grand mother (Marie, from "Le moulin de Lancette"). It was very difficult to work with for quilting... But I'm so glad that it is now included in this wonderful quilt! The background fabrics from Linvosge (mer du sud http://www.linvosges.com/fr/la-chambre/linge-de-lit/linge-de-lit-fantaisie/mer-du-sud/) and was unexpectedly so well suited. The pictures took time but it was worth waiting to be in Bretagne!! The colors and the weather were just what I needed. Thanks also to my models in front of the quilt and to my husband who is fighting with the wind behind the quilt... Love of my family is so important!
