Awaken to Chanel with a Chanel Quilt

Posted in Decoration & Design, French Quilts, French Travel, Paris Shopping, Therese Waddell's Quilts with tags , , , , , , on April 30, 2011 by Therese Waddell

Bonjour everyone,

I hope you’re all well. Thought you might like to take a wee peep at one of my recently finished quilt designs. It was inspired by my first glimpse of the Chanel shop in Paris a long while ago. Remember https://myfrenchawakening.wordpress.com/2010/02/13/awakening-to-chanel/

The beautiful art of Chanel is so inspirational for me in many ways. With its classic simplicity in line and shape, inspiration took hold of my french awakening and I could think of no other title for my Chanel inspired quilt design than simply “Chanel”.  I can only hope that Coco would have been pleased in some small way. So here it is….

My Chanel Quilt pattern is definately one for the girls this time, especially those interested in fashion with a bag fetish! The colours are bright with a  contemporary youthful feel, which harks back to the words of Coco Chanel herself…

“I am not young but I feel young. The day I feel old, I will go to bed and stay there. J’aime la vie! I feel that to live is a wonderful thing.”


Quilters Alert:  Choose your favourite fabulous fabrics for this one- I’ve used vintage brights from my great aunt’s fabric stash!

This pattern and many more is available at my quilting website:

www.quiltingthejourney.com

The SALE price is $25 for those of you who would like to purchase the pattern.

Do enjoy and live wonderfully!

Best Wishes,

Au Revoir,Therese

Awaken to more quilts- French style!

Posted in French Affair, French Quilts with tags , , on April 25, 2011 by Therese Waddell

Bonjour everyone,

Paris inspires me constantly as you already know. It’s so romantic with an abundance of high fashion and flare, my french awakening could not be stifled and I set out designing my ‘Paris Nights Quilt’. I do hope quilters and non quilters will enjoy this French inspired quilt.

The pattern is reversable as you can see. I’ve used a gorgeous silk and velvet backing (for those fanatics who enjoy the fabric details.)

My ‘Paris Nights Quilt’ and many other quilting patterns can be bought online (it’s on SALE) at  www.quiltingthejourney.com

Feel free to browse anyway. Have a great day everyone! x

Au Revoir,
Best Wishes,

Therese Waddell

Awaken to French Inspired Quilt Making

Posted in French Quilts, Therese Waddell's Quilts with tags , , on April 2, 2011 by Therese Waddell

Bonjour mes amis,

Je suis desole for my absence. I’ve been busy like you. My excuse is making quilts. French inspired quilts. Like this one…

And the funny thing is, once I start designing and making, my french awakening to quilting just  can’t seem to contain itself.

I’m certain you know the feeling. Others may recognise this as a relentless excuse not to re enter the real world but I’m happy with that.

Enjoy your busyness whatever it is and come rescue me if I submerge indefinately.

Au Revoir,

Best Wishes, Therese Waddell
