I am SEW ready for this Quilt!


I managed to cut out all of the pieces for my newest quilting project. It's been too long since I've completed a bed size quilt and I so love these French inspired fabrics!

Hubby & I made our first trip to Paris this past September and we fell in love with the City of Lights!
We enjoyed walking thru it's beautiful streets,parks and pathways.
So I've chosen to name this quilt - Strolling thru Paris.
Next week I'll begin sewing the blocks together.
This should prove to be a fast & fun quilt to assemble.

every Quilt tells a story...

  4. I can't wait to see this quilt. Black, white and red are colors I long to work with but am a little scared. And I also love Paris and France and European things.

  7. Sometimes I think the hardest part is cutting out all the fabrics, the fabrics look so enticing ready and waiting to be pieced.
