Foulard III // 4 and last !

I'm making good progress with my Foulard series and have completed number three. Some fabrics are the same as in I and II. But I've chosen a much darker one for contrast. While number I and II have a more subtle light to dark contrast, in III and IV the contrast is much stronger. Today I can show pictures of Foulard III. It will take another week or two and number IV will be completed too.

190 x 150 cm

You can look at my page Quilts for better comparison within the series.

Foulard II // 5 and last !

I guess I'm confusing you with my Foulard series. I am working on them in parallel steps and since I show pictures of the progress I keep switching back and forth among them. Sorry if I'm making it hard on you but this is just the way how I work. You are on the journey with me if you keep following me. You can always go to my Quilts page if you prefer to see only the finished quilts.

Here now and for the first time pictures of the finished Foulard II:

As of now I've completed Foulard I and II and I'm working on the binding of Foulard III.
Foulard IV is waiting and wondering what kind of backing it will get. Me too.

Foulard III // 3

Made progress on quilting Foulard III.

And attached the binding to the front.

Just need to finish hand sewing it to the back and Foulard III will be completed.

Foulard II // 4

I finished quilting Foulard II and I'm working on the binding right now.

I also basted Foulard III and will start the quilting later today.

I'm liking the current setting in my sewing studio. Foulard II on the sewing table being bound. Foulard III on the table, basted and waiting to be quilted. Foulard IV on the design wall waiting and wondering what kind of backing it will get. Love this stadium!

And today I leave you with autumnal greetings from my home town Basel...

... and my little garden.

Have a great week!
