Incertitude 5 and 6

Here are "Incertitude 5" and "Incertitude 6"...

"Incertitude 5" is 47cm by 47cm, and "Incertitude 6" is 17cm by 47cm.
I will update my gallery very soon.

The next top is almost ready for quilting...


I see it as a transition to another series for which I plan to use my indigo fabrics.

March

A little snow... then some sunshine and even springtime temperatures for a couple of days...
Today, it is cold again and windy, and we even got a few snowflakes this morning...

I think I'm done with my series "Incertitude".
Here are numbers 2 to 6...
I'll take a better picture as soon as we get some sunshine.

As I still have got a lot of these printed faces, and I'm not yet completely tired of them, I'm going to try and work a little more with them.
But I definitely need a change in colour scheme, and I also want to use the indigo fabrics I dyed before the winter.
Here's how my design board looks at the moment...

February

The sun came out today. So maybe it is time to take the blog (and myself) out of hibernation.
I spent most of my free time this winter sketching, still having fun with the selfies and other exercises.
I'm also studying  Japanese again.

Last week, I finished another little quilt in the "Incertitude" series.
And this is how my design wall looks today...
The plan is to make a fifth quilt using the printed face on the right.

I had the next mosaic ready some time ago, but apparently, I forgot to post it...
... and the next picture too...

Brussels and Brugge

Last week, I was a tourist in my own country, thanks to a friend visiting from abroad...
One day in Brussels and the next one in Brugge...

We were so lucky with the weather...
And now, back to my design wall...

Blue

The weather last weekend was absolutely beautiful and I decided on a whim to try and prepare an indigo vat. First time I did this, but it worked really great.
I dyed cotton thread and fabric. I had tied some of the fabric pieces shibori-style. No stitching as I did not have much time to prepare the fabric. Just folding, crumpling, clamping and so on.
Next are my new blue fabrics and threads.
The vat still looks good a few days after using it. We'll see if I can have one more dyeing session before the weather turns too cold.

More pictures of the show

The weather was a bit better yesterday for the final day of the quilt show. Not sunny, but mostly dry...
The 2016 challenge of the European Quilt Association was also exhibited at the show. The theme was "Greetings from..."
Next are two pictures of my group's exhibit...
The quilts that are not mine are by Yvette Winand and Martine Chapuis.
It looks like it's now mushroom season in my garden. This morning, I spotted dozens of them in the grass. Here's a very colorful one...
