A - Z : Reflections, Réflexion

Le Challenge est terminé et j'en suis venu à bout !
Oh boy, I did it! ;)



Mon défi de A à Z avait pour thème la découverte des secrets du monde merveilleux du quilting et du patchwork.
Vous pouvez retrouver tous les billets ici. J’ai vraiment apprécié effectuer des recherches pour chaque billet, en essayant de choisir le meilleur sujet, pas trop évident selon la lettre du jour ! J’ai beaucoup aimé les réactions des visiteurs, souvent des non-quilteurs. 
Merci beaucoup, j’ai apprécié chaque commentaire et visite !

My A to Z Challenge theme was about discovering the secrets of the wonderful world of quilting and patchwork.
You can find all the posts here. I really enjoyed the research for every post, trying to choose the best topic, not too obvious according to the letter of the day! I enjoyed a lot some reactions from the visitors, often not quilters. 
Thank you so much, I appreciated each comment and visit!

Je n'ai pas eu autant de temps que j'aurais voulu pour visiter d'autres blogs du Challenge (cette période à été chargée côté boulot), mais j'ai réussi à en suivre plusieurs via Bloglovin', et compléter ma liste chaque semaine.
J'ai particulièrement apprécié ces blogs :

I didn't have as much time to visit other blogs as I would have liked (it was a busy work period), but I manage to follow some of them via Bloglovin', adding more blogs to my follow list every week. 
I especially like these blogs:


Katy est une quilteuse, son challenge est de faire un quilt avec les patrons publiés dans les archives du journal Kansas City Star. Jolis blocs!
Katy is a quilter too, and she was blogging about making a quilt using only patterns from the Kansas City Star newspaper archives. Pretty blocks!

Cat et sa mère Sue sont quilteuses aussi! Cat profite du Challenge pour faire un sampler, basé sur 2 livres : 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks,et Marsha McCloskey's Block Party.
Cat and her mom Sue are quilters too ;) Cat plan to make a sampler quilt during the Challenge, based on two books: 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks, and Marsha McCloskey's Block Party.

Beth est une brodeuse, elle partage ses en-cours. Jolies broderies !
Beth blog about her work in progress, needlework and quilts. Pretty embroideries!

Jackie a eu la bonne idée de faire son Challenge autour des personnages de Game of Thrones ! Et plein d'infos autour de la série. J'adore !
Jackie has the great idea to post about Game of Thrones caracteres! And a lot of informations about the serie. I love it!

Le thème de Zalka, ce sont les contes, les légendes et les mythes à propos de fruits. Très intéressant, et amusant ! Mangez des fruits ;-)
Zalka's Challenge theme is folktales, legends, and myths about fruit. Very interesting, funny and clever! Eat fruits ;)

Lisa est une auteure de fiction, et connait très bien la France : son Challenge est un voyage à travers de magnifiques paysages et des personnages emblématiques. A découvrir !
Lisa is an author, and write for the Challenge about her love affair with France: beautiful landscapes and iconic characters. To see!

Ce n'est que pure fiction mais on aimerait que ce soit réel! Ce Challenge porte sur les nouvelles espèces ou technologies trouvées dans la science-fiction et la fantaisie. Excellent !
Purely fiction but we wish it was real! This Challenge is about new species or technology found in science fiction and fantasy. Great topics!

Et plein d'autres, comme :

  2. Frederique,

    I was fortunate to visit you a little through the blogfest but like you had more on my plate than I could comfortably manage. It's always interesting and fun to see what others bring to the challenge. Your theme is a lovely idea and a hobby that I very much would like to try someday. Congratulations on finishing this year and happy blogging, my friend! :)

  10. Congratulations on finishing the Challenge :) I've already told you how invaluable your posts are but I'll say it again! As a quilter, your work is most appreciated and if noone else has said it, it's publish worthy. All your A to Z topics were relevant to quilters and would make an awesome resource if put into book form. So happy to make you acquaintance!
