Nantes quilting exposition....

I have much more to share with you from the exposition from France.

Di Ford is also from Australia.  Her work is exquisite! 

This design is on one of Quilt Mania bags and I have marveled over it ever since I first saw it.

Many of her beautiful designs have a center medallion.  The majority of her designs revolve around wonderful muted fabrics....

However their are exceptions!

Her fabric selection is amazing.

I have a pattern which I made years ago which has uses this block.  Its in the pattern called, Made From Grandmas Aprons.  It is out of thirties so it had a way different look.

Stunning!  Once again it is all about the fabric.

Are you as enamored with her work as I am?

"We must be lovers, and at once the impossible becomes possible."
