DMC has commissioned me to make a small crazy quilt commemorating the trip to France that I won in their recent Stitching Memory contest. It is to be about my memories and impressions from the trip...and
what a pleasure this project is already!
When I was in Houston I found some perfect reproduction French border fabric at Lancaster Traditional Fabric's booth. (If you love unusual repro fabrics check out their site. Their booth was awesome.)
Next I created the background piecing for that center space.
Once they were pinned, I sewed them all down.
It was such a pleasure to use a variety of DMC's threads to lay down my seam treatments.
So now the background is finished and I am ready to add the next layer.
A project from my first book, the "Sister's Scrapbook Page", will give you an indication of where this is headed....
