Amsterdam - Wall Hanging

Sometimes it takes longer than it should. Life gets in the way. I bought this quilt kit from a wonderful quilt shop in Amsterdam back in 2013. The design is a reproduction of a historic quilt. "Bladzijde 147". The fabrics are cotton and chintz. I adjusted the original design for my purpose. Maybe I needed a new quilting buddy before I could finally finish it. I am waiting for the hanging rods to mount it to the wall. So this is how it looks for now.


HAPPY QUILTING

Weihnachtsmänner

"They are pretty - but what do you do with them?" I was asked. They are Christmas decoration. Just to look at and be pretty. And they will make great little gifts. 




But I think I am done with them for this year.  Maybe off to something practical.

Happy Quilting everyone.

Token of my appreciation

Quite unexpectedly I received this very nice book about quilting stitches for my birthday.

I quickly made a small cosmetic bag as a thank you.

Bag No 2

Class went so quickly I had to sew another bag to recap the steps. I choose left over fabric from the celtic solstice quilt and black for the inside and the handles. This is more the size of a normal purse.
