    Hi,

    I made a quilt for my favorite singer, the French Mylene Farmer ! Last week I was in Paris to see her in two concerts. I wanted to thank her for the wonderful time I had at her concerts so I made a quilt for her (using shadow trapunto, of course !).
    Does anyone know Mylene Farmer's music ?

    I know some of her music, plays on the radio around here.


    I'm pretty sure she's from Montreal.

    ETA: I looked it up, she was born here, raised 2 boulevards over from my house, lol! Moved to France when she was young.

    Your quilt is wonderful! I have never heard of the singer but to inspire such a wonderful quilt, she must be an awesome singer!

    Nice job. I love the colors. The quotation is nicely embroidered, too. She should be flattered a fan would go to such lengths to show her appreciation.

    Your quilt is beautiful. What a nice way to say thank you. I had never heard of her, but went to a site and checked her out. She has a beautiful voice and I like the music. I can't understand her, but I enjoyed listening to her because of her voice.

    Geta, once again you've created a masterpiece! I'm sure she will adore it!

    And Pea Soup, those letters aren't embroidered. It's all shadow trapunto!
