Before I went on vacation I have asked Nicole if she likes those lampions and if she is interessted in to sew one. I have received the pattern from Baloo a member of the Quiltfriends - big THANK YOU.
here is a pic of some simple lampions made by members of the Quiltfriends
I want mine to match the colors of my livingroom, so I went with blue and green fabrics
Nicole picked colors to fit to her daughters room
we started with the zigzag border - it took quite some time to make those
Antonio, he kept us company this one evening - and no he´s not buzzed ;-)
Nicoles is one the left and mine is on the right - nope we dont really have an idea why we have different sizes. The pattern was in cm and we only had inch-rulers and mat - propably the mix-up happened at the conversion
all the parts
can you tell that it was quite a bit windy in TX?
this ist the best pic with a second of almost no wind
The following pics I had to borrow from Nicole - somehow I dont have them. Nicole had a cord with light attachment in reserve and look what the lampions look like when they are glowing ;-)
I think we did a great job!!!
