In november I followed a Workshop from Elly Prins at the Quilterspalet in The Hague. Since then I have been working very hard on the 64 squares quilt. The technique isn't very complicated, but the fun is that squares are a kind of on top of the background fabric. I have finished the top as you can see on the picture, and this weekend I will starting quilting (with the machine).
Working with black fabrics is totally different from the colours I use to work with, but I already have a new idea to make another 64 (or 49 or 36) square quilt. I want to use traditional costume fabrics from the Netherlands again on a black background. The challenge will be to find 64 different fabrics. Well as soon as the Tradition Costume Museum in Spakenburg open her doors again in April I will be there. I showed Marne on skype how to make this squares, and it worked out very well, she made some beautifull X-mas ornaments. What a fun you can have with skype.
