It's a windy but sunny Saturday here in Holland. Actually, the perfect kind of weather to hang out quilts and blankets to air.
After spending the morning doing some household chores and re-potting some needy plants in the kitchen, I've finally a moment to post some projects I've completed for my friend Mieke in time for her birthday next week.
As I had mentioned before, I received several boxes full of fabric and UFO's and what-not from Mieke and dug around to see what I could find. This was one of the first things I fished out of the boxes and decided to completed it for her. I believe it was intended for her grand-daughter, so now that it's done perhaps they can read books and snuggle under it together.
This one was from a kit we each bought together at the European Quilt Championships in Waalre a few years back. I had already completed the top, and it was waiting in the closet for me to complete. Mieke's kit was still intact, so to save time, I used my top, bought the backing and finished it for her. I can always make it again using her kit. I had already chosen backing, binding and batting for mine, so one of these days I'll get started on that as the baby rib fabric is wonderfully soft and makes for a great winter quilt.
Now that those projects are done I'll continue with the triangles quilt and try to get a start on the Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. I've been running around taking care of things and quite frankly have been too tired to settle down and sort threads and such and get started. Perhaps tomorrow. I need to figure out how to prepare the Au Ver a Soie threads to loop them around a hole in the proper lengths. Anyone have an idea? Any advice or tips are very appreciated!
Ok. Time's up at the computer, and off I go!
Take care and see you soon!
