My Colourful Quilt


It has been a wonderful weekend with lots of really beautiful weather. Still I didn’t go out that much. The garden is a mess; next week we are supposed to put a new terrace in, so now a lot of work needs to be done there. No sitting in the sun!

But the main reason, was that I really wanted to finish my quilt.

I used a lot of different kinds of quilting:

7 (3)

 

7 (7)

7 (6)

I know now for sure that I need a lot more practice to make the quilting perfect. So many mistakes I made! But only when it was really bad, I did the quilting over. Otherwise it would never be finished.

Now the only question is: how to hang the quilt? I like all four sides, so I made a tunnel at every one of them.

The pattern of this quilt is: The Colourful Quilt, by Jacqueline de Jonge.

Hier raak je dus nooit op uitgekeken. Ik zou het bij mijn bed hangen en er iedere ochtend iets nieuws in zien.
Prachtig!!!
