Not a real Update because it is not the 14th of the month. But I am starting to make my sashings... beacuse otherwise I am afraid it will be to much sashings at once.... 121 blocks means 242 sashings and not even counted the conrnerstones with it... so better start now !!! I still haven't decided what kind of colour my cornerstones will be... but I will keep you posted


And the other one is in blue.... I am trying to make an scandinavien room with a lot of light colours .. ofcourse my favourite pink and blue.


I started a while ago with two embroderies... not knowing where to hang them when they finished. But this weekend all came clear and I am now anxious to finish them. This one the pink is already finished....

Civil war dairy Update

It is the 14th of the month: Civil war dairy Quilt Update date... And here they are I have 4 new blocks to show you...

This one I changed a little in the middle it had to be blue as well but I liked the red inside, you probably will not see it when the quilt is finished with so many blocks, but I like to like every block...

Update civil war (4)

Civil war Dairy Update number 4 and an other one with my favorite pinks !! As you know by now I love pink, not only,

but there has to be enough pink in the quilt...


And the biscornu is as finished as cann be. I made the pattern two times one with only flowers and on with 2009 on it. A little project G, M and I are going to make every year. If you want to see a much smaller one... you have to look at bungehuis..very pretty but to small for my eyes, hahahaha

And what I bought in Alkmaar

In alkmaar I bought the book Material Obsession in the nice bookshop just across the church I saw a lot of quilters found that nice bookshop with a lot of quiltbooks... and I bought all the fabric for a nice new project.... I saw it first in Quiltmania... and then on the show... I couldn't resist... my love for old fabrics, old patterns and new for me round pieces... I am going to piece this by hand... with the machine it means to much trouble. The quilt is called country wheels. The first circle is finished, will be published soon.
