What I'm working on...

All the blocks are sewn in a quilttop.

colourful
Bright vibrant colors, so lovely.
My first intention was to sew the binding directly on to the blocks. But now,
after a had good look at this top, standing on a chair for keeping a little distance.
I came to the conclusion that a border will give this top a more prettier finish.
So I took a dive in my fabric stash in search for the right colors and fabric to use.
I found one so far...
See the green checkerfabric in the corner? It fits perfect.

next step;  a border
While the quilt is on the floor waiting for a green border,
my sewing machine is busy sewing red and pink birds and sweet hearts.

The cross-stitch in the center is coming from a napkin.

And...I'm very happy to say I finally have a finish!!
finally a finish

This quilt was waiting endlessly for a happy ending.
I think my WIP's are definitely the most patience WIP's of all!

finally a finish

Have a lovely evening.
Groetjes, Corry

  11. Love the Dutch quilt. It's gorgeous. Another one for my wishlist. Might make something like it for my cousin Tess, once I've finished Zoë's Quilt (lol).

  12. That is so cool how you have mixed the Kaffe prints with classic ginghams! I like it! You kinda stepped out of the box there. Really cool. And the green gingham WILL be the perfect finish. Heart = cute! Dutch quilt = pretty! Sew on! I wanna see the result!

  13. Hallo Corry! Je 'bento box' quilt is mooi! Ik heb deze altijd nog op mijn lijst van quilts die ik wil ooit maken. En ook een rood, wit, blauw quilt af. Prachtig.

    Wat is je hart schattig. Leuk om een borduursel van een servet op nieuw te gebruiken.

    Hugs en groetjes ~
