Which is what I’ve decided to call the the quilt for my sister.
Aimée means loved. It is also, coincidentally, pronounced exactly the same as the name of the village in France where my sister lives, although the spelling is quite different to look at.
It’s working quite well for me; I’m loving the way this little quilt is coming together. The dark grey with white spots is not sashing, it’s a flange strip, just to add a little variety and texture. I’m really loving the Toile de Jouy print in duck egg blue, too, and am quite proud of the mitred corners, which I normally avoid like the plague. But the layout demanded it, so I knuckled down. I’m thinking about a few options for the next row out.
I’ve done hearts and pinwheels. Time for something else, I think…
