I'm falling behind with my blogging about my visit to Christelle's house...that's because I've been busy sewing...more about that later.
Back to show and tell.
Christelle did what every quilter should do when another quilter visits their house for the first time...brought out all her wonderful quilts to share. It really was so fun to see so many pieces of her work. She really has gotten an amazing number of quilts done...because all but one of them was hand quilted. You'll see what I mean for yourself!
These first two are Crabapple Hill Studio designs.
Snow Days...so wonderful to see this in person...I've admired the pattern on the internet.
And Calendula Patterdip's Cottage. Over the top embroidery work. It is crayon tinted. And can you see all the spiderwebs in the quilting?
Home Sweet Home, Blackbird Designs.
Designs from the Buggy Barn book, "Farm Fresh."
Personalized with a French and US flag since Christelle is French and has lived in the US. One of my favorites of hers. Blue quilts always grab me.
I think this is machine pieced but it is definitely hand quilted.
A series of patchwork quilts...
I should have taken some notes for all the quilt pattern names.
Yes...still all hand-quilted.
Hey...I know the pattern for this one! Midnight Silhouette from Blackbird Designs. A show-stopper.
I'm going kind of fast through these...
Look for the heart hidden in the storm at sea blocks.
Some Japanese Daiwabo fabrics. This is Christelle's largest quilt... it graces her son's bed.
I think this was a pattern from Primitive Gatherings magazine.
Many of you will recognize this pattern, Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice. This is Christelle's first machine quilted piece. There is a learning curve so we won't be critical at all on the wobbly places...part of the charm of a homemade quilt!
And finally...a batik quilt! Joy, designed by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts. Not quilted yet. I do love this one. The red and green colors are so bright. Perfectly pieced.
There is more to share about our day together in Christelle's hometown, Rambouillet, but I will save that for another post. Tomorrow Christelle is coming to Paris and we have a little outing planned. Can't wait!
