Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

Blogger Quilt Festival

This is my entry in the fall version of the Blogger Quilt Festival…….

We spent a wonderful July morning at the Eiffel tower, taking loads of photos from the top. Afterwards, we sat on the grass and enjoyed looking up at the tower

Once home my husband put these photos onto his computer as a screen saver. I devised the idea for this quilt as I watched the photos scroll past.

The Eiffel Tower and scenery photos are printed, but the lower part of the quilt is made using machine “Air Applique”.

The girl is daughter, Jenny, and I am particularly happy with how her hair turned out!!! Although, the first words out of her mouth were “you made me look fat!!!”.

  1. OMG! That is fantastic! What an inspiration! And I love the way you sketched and surfed the web to find what your wanted when you weren’t allowed to photograph it. Good for you!

  2. This is really beautiful. I’ve been to that palace as well, but not inside. We were accosted so badly by people who wanted their pictures taken with Western women that we never made it inside!

  3. What a great quilt–I love your composition and you are right, the hair looks good! My brother and his wife are going to Paris in two days. One day I hope to get there. Glad you get to enjoy the Eiffel Tower in a quilty way :). Thanks for sharing your quilt's story.
