The Best Form of Flattery!

I LOVE receiving mail like this!!

I got an email and pictures from Danièle, a long time reader.  Danièle only speaks French…so after translating her message, this was the gist of her email..She loved the little Red Schoolhouse Quilt that I made for Claire so much that she went on the hunt for similar red fabric.  She doesn’t own a sewing machine so after cutting out the fabric, she hand pieced all the blocks…and voilà…the sweetest School House Quilt is born!image

Quilters who hand piece blocks AMAZE me!!  Imagine not owning a sewing machine…Shutter to think!  Isn’t this quilt gorgeous!  I love it!!

And here is another of her creations…incredible!  Again all hand stitched!  Boggles my mind!


Thanks SEW much for sharing , Danièle!  Your quilts are works of art that you should be VERY proud of!  You have flattered me beyond words…you made my day!!

Have a magical Monday and Happy Quilting!~P


  1. I can't imagine not having a sewing machine but Daniele certainly can make that hand sewing needle fly. Years ago, I met a woman who has stitched a two piece suit by hand. It look amazing but must have taken her a lot of time.

  2. I'd love to completely hand piece and hand quilt a project but it's a simple pipe dream. :-) Her quilts are wonderful - wow!!!

  3. Very sweet quilts, especially to have been hand pieced. Thanks for sharing ;)

  4. very flattering for you! the hand piecing is amazing!

  5. Beautiful-Such dedication and talent. She is to be admired.
