Tour de France

F-13. Hand appliqué, 5 pieces.

Tour de France lying on a book called "Sjónabók".

The Icelandic "sjónabók" is a collection of traditional patterns for textiles.
Over 750 pages of beautiful patterns,
which are held in the collection of the National Museum of Iceland.

Lovely, Paula. I adore the marbelized look that the fabric adds to this block.

Sjónabók looks like a great source of inspiration!

Happy Quilting,

I could see three more of F13 joined to make a larger square and then perhaps embroidery around it to embellish.

Your block turned out so beautiful!
I love the gorgeous color & design element of your hand-dyed fabric!
I also like the way you have it displayed on that pretty opened book.
