I finished appliquéing and embroidering on my father's quilt top yesterday night. I sill haven't removed the chalk markings and it is all creased, sorry about that... But at least you can get an idea of what I've been working on!
My parents just redecorated the kitchen in their countryside house (in a very rural area). They painted it white and the walls now need some adorning with bright colours. This is what I have had in mind in making this quilt...
This was my first try at patchwork appliqué and even though I found it tricky at first, I must say that I am finally happy with how the stitches turned out.
Everything is appliqué but for the beaks and the chick's legs, which are embroidered (satin stich and chain stitch).
Next step tonight: quilting and (hopefully) binding the quilt.
Tomorrow: starting on the quilt for Hélène, whose birthday is today!
Thanks everyone for the lovely comments. You can't imagine how encouraging they are - they gave me wings to finish the quit top yesterday night!
You need to know that my sister being only a year younger than me, we are very intimate... She has always been my very, very best friend. And she'll be living in Paris starting next November!! She'll be an intern in Neurology (she passed the exam this Summer and I'm so proud of her!) and she chose to work in Paris so we could be together again.
