Almost done

I'm done with machine quilting my 12x12. I've sewn the binding on. Now, I'm taking a little break and auditioning some spicy embroidery threads.
The baby quilt is almost ready to leave for Japan. I just have to add a small label to the back. The quilt is about 32 by 36 inches.
I've started hand quilting this table runner at my quilting group meeting the other day.
I think most of these fabrics come from Japan, but I remember I bought the border one in China 3 years ago.
Enough blogging for now. It's time to go outside and to see if my tiny baby rocket and lettuce are doing fine. :-)


Here are some of the fabrics I'm using for my Twelve by Twelve Spice quilt...My quilt will have nothing to do with spices, except for the colours...
Last week, after lots of sketches, and also a few bad nights, I started cutting up the fabric and sewing the quilt top.
I'm doing an abstract landscape.

I even made a kind of pattern for this quilt because I wanted to stay close to my last sketches.
And today, I've been quilting...
I'm not sure yet if I'm going to use all these threads, but they sure look yummy, don't they? By the way, just in case you want to know, I don't like spicy food, but I love these colours!

The giveaway winners

Thank you everyone who left a comment on my last post. Little GD was here today after daycare...And she picked the two winners...
Congratulations Natsumi and Angela! :-)

Voici enfin le petit cadeau que j'avais promis pour fêter le 5ème anniversaire de mon blog.

Il y aura deux gagnants tirés au sort.
Et, la semaine prochaine, si tout va bien, j'aurai un autre cadeau à mettre en jeu, cette fois pour mes lecteurs européens uniquement.

In other news, I'm starting to think about the "Spice" colour scheme for my next Twelve by Twelve quilt. Here are the fabrics I have selected so far...
Je commence à penser à mon prochain quilt Twelve by Twelve. La palette de couleurs est "Epices". Voici les tissus que j'ai choisis pour l'instant...

I've got an idea. I did a little sketch. It doesn't have anything to do with spice. But why not? As long as I use the given colours, I'm ok, right?
J'ai une idée, j'ai fait un petit croquis . Cela n'a rien à voir avec les épices, mais tant que j'utilise la palette imposée, pas de problème!
And, here's a picture I took in Wales, because I keep seeing chartreuse everywhere. This is just for you Gerrie! ;-)
Et pour terminer, une photo prise au Pays de Galles, parce que je continue à être obsédée par la couleur "chartreuse". Spécialement pour toi, Gerrie! ;-)
