The stash of the hexagon blocks is coming, slowly. I thought I'd make up the last 3-4 blocks while I was traveling, but never found uninterrupted time. I got one done, and two started though. Now, if I could hone in on that layout for the blocks, I'd be getting somewhere...
Here's an earlier post if you want to see more quilting photos.
From the Bride's Trousseau quilt won a best machine quilting award! It won a 1st 3 weeks ago at AQS's Syracuse show, while I was away in France. I am very surprised how well this little whole cloth quilt has done. The competition in Grand Rapids must be fierce. My Bouquet Royale did not even place. Try again next month :-)
I will leave you with some pics from the gorgeous open markets of France. The veggies and other are endless, and so very lovely to look at.
these are actually a tomato
needs no explaining! Yumm!
All kinds of seafood
One of my faves...olives
There are markets of fruits, meats, nuts, dry beabs and every kind of cheese you can imagine. Not being a cheese-eater, though, I naturally have no pics of this! I probably should have taken a picture of the wine sections at the markets too...it goes without saying that there were many! And prices for many 1/2 bottles were in the 2-3 euro range...cheap! A glass of wine is cheaper than a can of coke, by close to a dollar!
