Spakenburger Mills

Emma was here last sunday and she made a picture of me and my Spakenburger quilt, which is still in progress. It's a very interesting quilt, because you can see different stars and circles in it. I think I like it to be pretty big. The picture really inspires me to go on.

After cleaning up my quiltroom, I have avoided quiltshops. There is enough fabric in my quiltroom to keep me busy for several years ; ). Most of us know this problem.

But .... I had to go the Museum in Spakenburg.they're closing down for the winter, and I needed to be sure there is enough fabric to finish my "Mills of Spakenburg".

The museum exposes different quilts, mostly made of spakenburger fabrics.

Loads of "quilt fabrics" waiting for their new owners.

Betekend dat, dat je de uitverkoop bij Evy negeert? Je top wordt prachtig trouwens en ik denk dat je gelijk hebt. Voor het beste effect moet de top groot worden. Weer je in elk geval wat je kunt deze dit najaar :-) Groetjes,

Je hebt vast wat leuke stofjes gevonden daar in Spakenburg! Hoe ga je dat straks doen in Seattle? Ga je je inhouden en kom je zonder stofjes terug?

that really is such a nice quilt start and I think you will really enjoy it even more when it is bigger. I'm glad that you found a "bit more" fabric so you can keep going. Isn't it so nice that Yvonne is such a faithful reader and always leaves comments. Lucky us!
