How lucky I was, arriving at my summer place in Auvergne last July, to find there was a quilt exhibition... and what an exhibition... absolutely wonderful!
Here are shown reproduction quilts, hand pieced and hand quilted, in an absolute respect of the tradition. Perfect work of meticulousness in the details, so impressive! Some of those quilts are a life achievement! Congratulations to the artists!!!

Here is my last post before leaving Greece to spend the summer in France. Despite my troubles after injuring my spine, I managed little by little to finish hand quilting this baby quilt for my seven months' old grand daughter. It is the reason why the quilting is rather basic...

You can find HERE my Log Cabin tutorial. 

HERE the references for the measurements of this baby quilt and the fabric line I used.

Wishing you all a beautiful summer holiday!

Green Shawl

Loving the pattern of this shawl, I knitted a second one. Here is THE TUTORIAL.
I did this one larger than the first one, I needed then 12 balls of the wool shawn HERE.
The crochet border is slightly different.
This is the easiest pattern possible : garstitch all along starting from one side corner, increasing every row and when the middle is reached, decreasing every row. The crochet border and the fringes are  optional.
So pleasant to knit watching TV!!!
