Baby quilt for the Christmas market

I made this babyquilt for the Christmas market of Sarzay Creatif. I became a member of this club and every year they organize a Christmas market. This year I did not do summermarkets so there are a lot of small things left to sell.
The baby quilt measures 1,25 x 125, rather big for a babyquilt but it could also be used as a playblanket for a toddler.

I also started to crochet a pillow cover for the market, I only need to crochet another 16 granny's!

And of course, I also quilted my poststampquilt. 

My cat 'bibiche' also likes the quilt....

So this week I was rather busy!

AMAZING kitting and crochet ART in France

No words only pictures.

The photos were taken in Clermont Ferrand by Zabeth, she is a French 'Newyorkaise', for the last 30 years.  We know each other by Ravelry and she sent the pictures to me to publish.

What's on the line?

Last winter I started a poststampquilt . It is machine pieced and because my sewing machine is in the attic, in summer it was too hot to sit there.
Last week I finished the piecing.  
I used a lot of different fabric: some reproduction fabric, some colorful charmpacks from Moda , some  scraps , so the result is very scrappy....

I do the quilting by hand with a variegated perlé 8 cotton thread from Valdaniin the brown/orange/terracotta color range. 
I just started.

After a really Indian Summer week we now have gloomy weather with a bit of rain. Real stitch weather!!

I love autumn colors....

I love all those autumn reds, orange and yellows, although there are less than last year. Due to the dryness the amelanchier lost most of his leaves already, it's a pity because they, usual , are very colorful. 

There are still roses in bloom.....

And my precious little cyclamen. I planted them year after year and for the first time They seem to be happy under the trees....
