Its amazing how the change of season has an impact on my productivity.
The height of the sun in the sky, the lovely golden light and warm - but not too warm days.....
lots of baking
Im in designing heaven
I'm currently working on 3 quilt designs for a few fabric houses, sorting out my own cushions that are being sold on my etsy store & taking commissions for quilts.
I have also been playing around with the idea of modern fresh fabrics in traditional patterns
I have sample blocks strewn all over the house.
I was also reading Denyse Schmidts new book "Modern Quilts - Traditional Inspiration". The images are lovely and quilts beautiful. Denyse talks a bit about her love of contemporary furnishings and design and how she felt that bedding wasn't being showcased in the same arena.
I nearly fell off my chair!
It was like she had read my mind.
I know you can buy some nice bed linen and bed covers - but nothing beats a patchwork quilt.
Here is yet another look at my cushion panels that I have designed and had printed.
I have been to Paris three times in the last three years, its lovely to go back.
I always stay in St Germain des Pres - I have all my favourite spots, the florist in the cushion panel below being one of them.
