X-mas Quilt

The dog quilt for Lucca is almost finished, just 50 cm binding to go, that's all, photos will follow next week.

Time for a new project (oke, forget about all the UFO's, that are still waiting).

Yesterday in the "Cozy Country Shop"  my mum and I were looking around and then I saw  a kind of quilt I really liked. Pretty simple, but really cute.

What had they done? They just sew strips of fabrics together. The width of the quilt is about 140/150 cm and the length probably 200 cm. The strips were cut of different kind of fabrics, cotton, corduroy, wool, flannel and even some velvet. The strips had different sizes, for example 10 cm, 20 cm, 40 cm, only the length was about 140/150 cm. I can't wait to make one of my own, and when I was laying in my bed, remembering the day I thought of my "Westfalen" fabrics. Bought in Germany two and half years ago, still not used. And the advantage, the westfalen fabrics are 140cm width of fabric. I also found some matching corduroy in my stack,  maybe I buy a piece of flannel or wool. Applique X-mas trees and mooses?

This sounds very interesting. I will be interested to see more photos as it develops. Hmmmmm. I bought fabrics for a new Bonnie Hunter mystery. I must take pictures to show. First serious fabric shopping in several months.

I looked at the ad for the shop. It is very cute and does not look like a Dutch shop, at all. I realize they have all sorts of English goods, but it was quite funny to think of it there. Some really lovely things, though.
