I've been humming "I Love Paris" while cutting out the fabric for this quilt I'm making for Yvette's petitite cousine en Quebec province. She sent me fabric with sepia-toned postcards which I felt was too somber for a little girl. So I have added scraps of pink in various shades along with some other more colorful Parisian-themed fabrics. It's going to be bright!
The postcards aren't quite square and are odd-sized, so they present a bit of a problem while cutting. Do you think it needs sashing? I'll show it to Polly for her opinion, too, tomorrow when she's here for Thanksgiving.
I hope to finish soon and then I'm planning to stitch in the ditch with some simple outlining of the motifs in the center of the postcards. I may have to quilt it in sections which is OK. Hope she likes it - I'm not planning to finish until early 2015. Yve is the only person I do any commissions for - I just can't say "non" to her.
