5, Favourite craft and a quilt to finish

First I want to thank everyone who left a comment on my last post, or has sent me an email. I am a bit overwhelmed by it. THANK YOU!!! You are all lovely and too kind.

If you would have asked me about a year ago, what my favourite craft was, I probably would have answered without hesitation, that that would be patchwork and quilting, and the least favourite would be crochet. Now I’m not sure anymore. This past year I have been crocheting a lot, and I don’t think I would have done that if I didn’t like it. Next, I have been knitting quite a bit. And patchwork? Not really. There were a few WIP’s on the shelves, and sadly enough, that is where they stayed.
So, my favourite craft? I don’t know, I guess fabric- and fibre related crafts are all favourite to me.

Because I didn’t have any knitting or crocheting laying around, I thought it would be a good idea to get one of those quilts out and try to finish it.

As you can see, there are just a few parts to be made.

So I started making the pattern, cut the fabric, and sew the pieces together.

The pattern is ‘The Colourful Quilt’, by Jacqueline de Jonge . She makes the most wonderful quilts with a lot of curves and triangles. Go and check her site, because it is really worth a visit.

Groetjes, Dorien

Oh wat wordt dit mooi! Ik heb twee cursussen bij Jacqueline gevolgd, één voor de techniek en één voor het ontwerpen. Als ik dit zie wil ik snel gaan tekenen en er zelf één verzinnen...

Rich colors. Absolutely gorgeous! Love the sharp points. Certainly worthy of finishing.

Wat ontzettend mooi! Knap hoor, die hele scherpe puntjes. Dit is niet mijn sterke kant ;o)
Je stofjes en kleurgebruik bevallen me ook erg goed!
