A few years ago my family took a trip to Paris - a city that I had very little interest in visiting. Well, I WAS WRONG. We had a fabulous vacation that lives on in fond memories for me - the people, the food, the sites - everything was perfect. Every now and again those memories surface in my quilting, specifically the Eiffel Tower.
This is a post card I threw together a few years ago after our vacation.
Last year I created this tonal appliqued version of the tower from a upward gazing angle.
I've been working on yet another Eiffel Tower - I'm going to wait to share it with you until I'm further along - let's just say it's bigger than a postcard, bigger than a bread box as well.
Like the applique block - I'll be up loading it as a free pattern this week - should give you adequate time to get your quilt ready for Bastille Day.
