It's been a long time.

Yes it's been a long time since I was here.
I was busy with my lessons and other stuff but there was nothing much to tell and show.
But today I can show you a finished quilt. I started it last year but with so many other things to do it was put down for a while. So here it is. I am happy with it. The size is 48 " square.

The sampler I made for my lessons is almost finished. At least the top. I am busy with the corners and with the lovely pattern that has to be even on all four sides it is not really easy and a lot of work. I am new at making these corners but I am sure for people who quilt a lot it is easy as can be. :))) I hope to get there some day.

It is not a good photo at all as it was lying there on the table but you can see how it is going to be.
It is going to be the biggest quilt I made so far.

I have a few more quilts I have to finish so I hope to be back sooner this time.

See you nex time.

  1. Riet I absolutely love the blue quilt, beautiful job!

  2. Zoooooooo lieve Rietje, wat een SCHOONHEID de
    blauwe quilt. Prachtige stoffen en patronen, en de rand
    die er omheen komt een P L A A T J E zo mooi!!!
    Op één of andere manier gaat er een rust van uit, heerlijk.

    Wat heerlijk hé dat je zoveel met al die lessen hebt
    geleerd. De kleine rode met de huisjes vind ik
    trouwens ook heel erg mooi geworden, de rand er
    omheen ziet er ook erg fraai uit.

    Ik denk dat als de blauwe voltooid is je de andere
    die er nog liggen ook gaat voltooien.
    Je kan wel een winkeltje beginnen, maar zelf ophangen
    thuis zou natuurlijk ook fantastisch zijn.

    Succes met de afwerking die best nog wel wat
    tijd in beslag zal nemen denk ik.

    Veel liefs,

  3. I admire you learning to quilt. It is a popular thing. I do not know a thing about making one, but love them. I have several old and new ones. I am doing okay, just not much get up and go yet. Probably part of that is old age.

  4. Riet ze zijn allebei super..petje af hoor!
    Als ik naar de blauwe kijk krijg ik ook wel zin om er een te maken, rand is erg leuk zo met al die kleine 'kroontjes'.

  5. Someday I hope to be able to quilt like you dear Riet! Your's are so beautiful. So far all I have attempted are simple blocks, but I'm having so much fun.
    sending love...

  6. Thanks for your visit at my blog. I like your last little quilt with the houses, because of the beautifull colours of the fabrics.

  7. Your quilt top is absolutely stunning! I love the colors and the sampler design, and the borders! It's all just wonderful! The red quilt with the houses is also just wonderful! You are a master quilter in the making, for sure!!!
