When I was in Normandy two years ago I discovered "Born to Quilt" (http://www.borntoquilt.fr/) in a French quilting magazine. This is such a beautiful and inspiring shop run by Vero Requena. It is true American/English country style- and clever Vero decided to run a "Mystery Quilt". This is just the sort of commitment and inspiration I needed. I signed up - and waited with great excitement every month for a new block to arrive. Each block was different and such big fun to put together. Of course inevitably it took me longer than 12 months, but here is the finished quilt - baisted and ready for me to hand quilt.
