Feeling proud...........

...... just during our holidays the Dutch Quilters Guild informed me that one of my quilts was picked/selected for the big quilt event in september in Deventer. It will be hanging in the Lebuinischurch in Deventer. Fun... fun ... fun.....   Marne do you remember those dirty old blocks?

Talking about the plans for september we have the quilting days in Deventer.

Quilts in Deventer

Jeltje is organizing the 'Dear Jane' exposition in the synagoge (second picture).

And she invited me to do two show-and-tells of my antique quilts (thursday and saturday). This is one of my old quilts, Jeltje with some ladies made this sampler quilt from 1930s blocks. Then they made the pattern and made another one with new fabrics. Isn't it cute.

You know, a long time ago I started my Dear Jane Quilt, but after 12 blocks I gave up, same with the Amish Circle Quilt. So now I have my 24 blocks quilt "Dear Amish Jane".

  Life can be so excited.

The youngest quilter in our family ... Sophie

.... only 9 years old, making a little quilt for Floris the cat. A great way to spend my saturday morning with my niece and sister.
Maybe we can a start the quilting tradition .... in the family.
