Tour de France (Tour de Fibre)

May Britt a blogging friend from Norway, is having a "Tour de Fibre" to coincide with the Tour de France!!   This is my little bit of Tour de France for today ....  Australian Cadel Evans (in the centre) cycling his way to victory (we hope)!!    And in the "fibre" department, bottom right hand corner is my new "Red Home" book by Natalie Bird!!     Sylvia ... how impressed would Bruce be to hear that I am blogging about cycling???

I'm just playing with this gorgeous bunch of red fabrics at the moment ....

And they will hopefully one day soon look like this gorgeous quilt which is in the book ... love it!!


  1. I don't watch much sport, but I do like the Tour - ma bye it's the lycra and the beautiful French countryside. I'm looking forward to seeing your quilt, I can't decide where to start in that book.

  2. Fancy blogging about cycling! Great posts, Fiona, and can't wait to see your secret retreat stitching!

  3. Hanne and I are starting to sew on this quilt next week when she comes for a visit. I love this book. Have you bought the original fabrics for this quilt??? They bundle of fabric you have looks soooooo lovely.

  4. I love this quilt too !!
