25 years ago, while I was a student, I learned to quilt by the traditionnal and rigorous way. Then, I began to work and quilting became a way to relax. As a full-time working mom, I moved in the countryside near Paris, I created my blog to join the quilting community and to motivate myself.
It was a great experience! I I met people from all walks of life, sometimes very far from me in France and living all over the world. I met Cécile (patchworkinspiration), we went together to Paducah! American blogs or Australian blogs taught me some new techniques and led me to appreciate mixed colors unusual in France. And I am still crazy about reading Quiltmania magazine, of course!
So, last year I decided to change my blog with a modern look, with my new tastes such as saturated fabrics for example. The work of designers like Tula Pink, Alison Glass, Pat Bravo, Sharon Holland or Australians as Blue Mountain Daisy are my favorite. I wish I could, one day, create my own quilts! For the moment, I make miniquilts and bags!
That’s why this year I wanted to make a French QAL, as Angie from Gnome Angel (AU) made it in 2016. Based on Tula Pink’s book City Sampler, we plan to make 100 blocks in 100 days between the 5th of March and the 12th of June 2017. It’s open to French, Belgian and Swiss people because we found French sponsors!
You can follow our QAL on our blogs and Instagram (#100jours100blocs)!
