Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? Especially when we’re still stuck in this winter of frigidly cold temperatures. But no, I’m not going to Paris. However, I’ve started a new quilt that is already named. And its name is Springtime in Paris.
It’s going to be made using these three shapes. Once I decided I was making it, I had some fabrics printed in no time. A few minutes after this shot was taken I was stitching.
And the first two blocks are done. It’s an incredibly quick block to stitch. I would have had more done except I need to print more so that I have more variety in the peels. So today I’ll print more of the shapes I need.
Pressed and seams graded.
Why is it named Springtime in Paris? Two reasons. First, I’m using the gorgeous Paris Flea Market fabrics. It only took me almost a year to figure out what I wanted to make with them. Secondly, I’m using the Eiffel Tower variation in the Inklingo Orange Peel Deluxe collection. That is clearly one of my favourite collections as this is the third quilt I’ve made using it. I think it’s all the curved piecing that draws me in every time.
