A cheerful Staphorster Quilt

What are you doing early in the morning, when you're out of your bed? I'm really a morning person. I'm happy, lively, full of energy. Often I'm awake early (6 a.m. isn't an exception), and then I can't stay in my bed.

Time to make a cup of tea, put on the radio, and do some sewing before I leave for work. This is my new sewing machine patchwork. Every evening I do some handquilting on Grace's quilt, so it's more then halfway now, but it's good to have some variaty. This will be a very cheerful quilt, the fabrics are from traditional dutch costumes from Staphorst and Rouveen, period: 1950-1960. I'm always a little bit suprised, this little villages in the Netherlands have strong traditional conservative traditions, about what you can or can't do. But the fabrics are often very cheerful.

Very colorful. It will be a fun reminder of our tme there and all the fabric history that we saw.
