To complete my website which is in French, I've decided to create a blog in English.

In fact, it will rather be a Gallery, as I am a better stitcher than writer ...
All my artwork from 1999 to 2007 can be found in the Archives : November 2007

I'll add regularly some views and close-up of my new pieces.

Created in 2001 for the Hoffman Challenge which theme was "Shalimar".
40% of the surface must be done with prescribed fabrics.

It has been constructed following the draft of a turkish hammam.

The calligraphy design in the top right corner is by Hassan Massoudy : verse of the XII century poet Ibn al Fared and says " What have I not yet done for Love ?"

Kaleidoscope motifs following the advices of Paula Nadelstern's book "Kaleidoscopes and quilts".

Paper piecing and free hand machine quilting.
Hand stitched butterflies and flower.
