I love to put people in my quilts and a French girl was fun! They always have beautiful eyes and style!
Here is my Giverney quilt....I adored the flowers and drama there..color and bauty! Timeless Treasures offered me some fabrics and I chose from TWO lines...actually three. I mixed them up to create this fun quilt that I plan to hang in my entryhall. France is a beautiful place with many stories...jsut right for someone like me!
After I sent my quilt away to be quilted, I found some broken pearls that I bought in Provence...they were the perfect touch for this pretty quilt....wish you could see it in person. Timeless Treasures did fabric in such pretty designs and it was really fun to work with. Anyone who loves France would find the same thing.
I put a sign in that said "please do not pick the flowers"- this sign was everywhere in the French garden....who would dare pick a flower?
I also wanted to show you a Kantha blanet (made from old Sari's and quilted by hand). I bought this for a tablecloth for Autumn. The color are amazing and the light giving quality is just up my alley, I have been painting some things like this with light. Hopefully you will see a new fabricline from me one of these days...I know many of you are waiting. :0) Color and light will be my aim. Here is the table with some glass pumpkins I bought....I also added an old antique bowl with Halloween candy in it for fun.
Just wait until you see my red and green Kantha quilt I bought for Christmas table or possible a tree skirt...I want to put a small tree in an old wagon I have.... To see more of the Timeless treasures French quilt, go to Mary Lou and Whimsy too. I am on my way to Quilt Market in Houston for a few days. My husband is laying low as we found out today he will have surgery for his prostate cancer on Nov. 20th and he will come home on Thanksgiving. I guess that will be something to be thankful for RIGHT? Next I will be adding wonderful quilts from the Market show! Can't wait. Look for that Timeless Treasure French and bright fabrics!

How Fun your Giverney Quilt! Lucky you to get special fabrics to pick from! Wish you would have a workshop or class in the K.C., Mo. area. How can I send you a picture of my Story Art Quilts? I've been wondering about your husbands surgery,praying all goes well and he will come home Thanksgiving. A wonderful home coming day!

Lovely embellishments with the pearls.

Your sari quilt top/table cloth is lovely also thanks for sharing the idea.

All the best to Mark in his recovery.
