Finished :-) A flirt with ÖQ Block of the Month from 2011

At last.....
In 2011 http://oresundsquiltarna.blogspot.se/
had a Block of the Month series made by Britt-Inger Jönsson and Karin Persson.
I used only some of the blocks, and named the result "A flirt with"...

The flowery fabrics I bought in Paris, the series " Romance de Paris "   made by  Diane de Obaldia.
She has the most wonderful small shop in Paris, http://www.lerouvray.com/index.html
Visit it if you are in the area of  Notre Dame, on the other side of the river....

For the backing I used muslin, and the binding are put together with bits and pieces left from the piecing. In the corners I used a small single wonky star, the original are 4 in one block. For some of the blocks I changed the size,  and some I used more then once, to fit into my setting. All blocks I used are in the original.
Finished size: 65 x 52,5 inch. ( ca. 165x133 cm)

So, the result:


 
 


I quilted in "the ditch", and some extra in the card trick blocks. The borders are free hand quilted, and the label are embroidery. :-) (you can almost see it...)


This a  blurry picture of the original, but I don't have any other one, sorry :-(
Just so you can see, its a lot of blocks I did not use, this time. :-)


 
Have a nice week, and hope the sun are shining on you as well. :-)
