There was a time (oh, long time ago!) when my French language was 10 times better than it is now my English. But I did not use it and I forgot probably 90% of what I knew. But this is not an impediment in loving the music of French singer Mylene Farmer.
We are ready for our third trip to Paris to see her in concerts. We have tickets for 3 concerts. I know, you think we are crazy. Are we crazy when visiting Houston Quilt Festival for 3 days ? For me, Mylene and quilting mean the same thing: they make me happy and I think these are the best things in my life. In fact, my love for Mylene is similar with my love for quilting and I really don’t understand how these 2 things came into my life the same time and how both changed my life!
So our Parisian adventure will start in 2 days. This time I did not make a new quilt for Mylene, but, you know, I have 3 sisters! And they all come to Paris. Look what I made for them!
|– large travel bags –|
Do you remember this 1” hexagon bag ?
|I made it for Oana|
|This one is for Nico/ fabric is “Sakura Park” by Moda.|
To finish it faster, I made it with bigger hexagons – 1 1/4”.
Solid fabric turned into quilted fabric – dramatic change!
And an assorted double zippered pouch.
This one with black and white hexies is for Nina; Nina helped me to sew the hexies for all these bags.And the entire black and white thing was her idea. Thank you, M, for the beautiful black and white scraps!
Ugly thick black fabric quilted and turned into beautiful black fabric .
And a small shoulder bag- for Nina as well.
I could not help myself and added a little color…
And a matching double zippered pouch for each large bag.
Which one do you like most ?
I am partial – I like mine :), the one without hexagons but in fabulous (Jenean Morrison ) fabric!
Now to pack! And hopefully schedule some new posts. See you after September 20, with stories from Paris.
