The dark colours (purple and black) are the mourning fabrics, the blue and brown come from the blouses, and the flowerish fabrics are coming from the "krablappen" (the stiff part of the costume over the shoulder).
This quilt is very special for me, in the Netherlands is not easy to find dutch antique quilts, or find antique dutch fabrics. So I'm very happy that I could make this quilt. The patching is done with the machine, but the quilting is all done by hand. I love handquilting it makes your quilt soft and cozy. There are 143 blocks. The size of the quilt is: 128 cm x 152 cm (51 inch x 60 inch).
