This is such a fun, spending a whole weekend quilting. Dieuwke and I started on friday evening around 20.00 h, and ended sunday afternoon around 15.30 h. We had lot of plans, doing a lot of hand-quilting, but we both spend all our time behind the sewing machine and the iron.
Dieuwke was working on her "lady of the lake", we found out she had enough fabric to make kingsize quilt.
I worked on my "Spakenburg Quilt". I bought this fabrics a couple of weeks ago in the museum in Spakenburg. They're all from the 1900's - 1940's except the red-white. The red-white is a new fabric, and symbolize the colours the Spakenburger women wear in their scarf. There 143 snowballs in this quilt. It took a lot of thinking how to arrange the blocks, but at the end Dieuwke and I decided that "random" was the best. Unfortunelately Willemijn couldn't join us, next quiltingweekend will be november.

Tip to have a great quiltweekend: go out for dinner, don't waste any time with cooking!

Fabulous. Wish I could have come along too! We had much fun camping and I will put up some photos on the blog - probably tomorrow. Dutch tonight. M.

I love the little dolly cart in the corner - is that new?

I wrote a comment earlier and it did say 1 comment, but nothing shows up here. Very nice job, you girls. Wish I had been there, too.
