Still need to re-hang my group of antique French letters
since switching my console for my canape!
In the process of stitching 18th century French Flamme Ikat from
antique fabric guru Wendy Lewis onto old needlepoint pillows…
Earlier post about Wendy here
A wide selection of blues she has on Ebay here
Detail…all hand quilted, hand stitched…
Even though I paired my small quilt with the pillow trim
in a post over a year ago here it’s taken me a year
to have the courage to cut it into pieces.
Wendy currently has a beautiful 18th c Flame Ikat pelmet here
Now THAT I could never cut!
One of Wendy’s most incredible 18th century quilts here
She’s in a wonderful new (old) house and it’s worth perusing
her stock just to get a glimpse at her home around the edges!
More gorgeous quilted blues… from an earlier post here:
The bed is dressed with a boutis (French quilt) in
motifs inspired by les Indiennes de Nimes and flags de procession
chines rest on the headboard above each pillow…
Which led me to this little Les Indiennes hand blocked, quilted pillow …
I suppose it’s those extra few stitches…and the tie back…and the bit of blue…
More Les Indiennes here
Keeping busy, and fussing around with my blog templates
so all might go poof. If so, carry on without me!
