Awaken to Chanel with a Chanel Quilt

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

  1. Lovely work, Therese!

    But having a quilt like that it might be an incentive to go to bed and stay there.

    • Thanks Richard- very kind of you, though I’d have to say that under a quilt like this brings me to ponder all sorts of French adventures and sleep is usually the last thing on my mind! All the best, Therese
