couples quilt

Material Obsession
It's a Couples Thing!
One Thursday a month Brigitte Giblin arrives at Material Obsession with a suitcase full of fabulous, quirky tops and quilts made with her French flair. She has a natural style with colour that is at once captivating. Whenever possible I sit in to learn a bit about applique and to absorb a bit of her interpretation of antique quilts. The Couples Quilt (loosely interpreted with love) pictured here is a result of these classes. It's still a work in progress but one I have to admit is growing on me as one of my all time favorites. Stay tuned for more on the quilts being done by the others in the class next month. k
