Simone's Baby Quilt

After a very long absence from my blog, I am back with the last quilt I achieved.
It was a very easy and quick baby quilt to complete, though hand quilted. 
I started end of September and finished beginning of November, just in time before flying to Paris : 
last stitches the night before!

This quilt is a gift for my niece who decorated the bedroom of her future daughter using very soft colors. I first intended to sew a quilt using my beloved Liberty fabrics but, after I received the pictures of the wallpapers, I put them away and decided to try a new fabric selection.
Quite happy with it... the colors matched successfully! 

I love the atmosphere of this baby girl's room... definitely sweet romantic.

Those pictures were taken in Paris, three days before Simone's birth!

In my next post I will write a short tutorial showing pictures of the preparation of this baby quilt.

A little trip to Paris last week. And for me, going to Paris means visiting and shopping at La Droguerie, my favorite haberdasher's shop. They have their own production and dyeing of great quality yarns. In this wonderful shop you can find quilting fabrics, Liberty fabrics, all sorts of threads, buttons, beads, ribbons... as well as catalogues with their great patterns for children or adults.

I remember when this shop was created in 1975, I was one of their first customer and so happy to find cashmere yarn, out of which I knitted a sweater for the one who became and still is my husband!

Coming back to Athens I started knitting a little jacket for my 3 years old grandson.

I am as well progressing my giant hexagon quilt top.

I sewed this Fritter Frog for my one year old grand daughter who is in love with frogs. She already got for Christmas various books, toys... about frogs.
