Fabric book

Some time ago, I decided I would try and make a small fabric book from the leftovers of each 12x12 quilt in the Twelve by Twelve colorplay series. Each page would be about 7x7. Yesterday, I worked on the fourth page of the book, the purple and yellow one. And today, I did the lorikeet page.
J'ai décidé il y a un petit temps de réaliser un livre en tissu à partir des restes de chaque quilt 12x12 de la série Twelve by Twelve Colorplay. Chaque page du livre fera environ 18x18 cm. Hier, j'ai travaillé à la 4ème page du livre ("purple and yellow"). Et aujourd'hui, j'ai cousu la page "lorikeet".

Here are the five pages I made so far...
Voici les cinq pages que j'ai déjà faites...

and the related 12x12 quilts...
et les quilts 12x12 correspondants...

(a rather bad picture quickly taken this afternoon when it stopped raining for a few minutes.)
(la photo est plutôt mauvaise, je l'ai prise en vitesse cet après-midi pendant une éclaircie de quelques minutes.)
Tomorrow, I really want to start working on our new colour scheme.
Demain, je veux vraiment commencer à travailler à notre nouvelle palette.

I love the idea of making a book of the 12 x 12 blocks! That’s twice the fun!

ainsi tu garderas une version mini de tes blocs ... et combien de pages comptes tu mettre dans ton livre ?

What a beautiful collection. I love the 12x12 format. I am struggling with the 16x20 verticle constraints on the Fiberactions challenges. I guess that's why they call it a challenge!

What a great idea, and I love how well the pages correspond to your quilts -- but not exactly, which is delightful.
